***see my note about Blogger at the end of this post.***
This week I pulled out my pink bits and pieces and played with the various blocks I'm making for this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Two eight inch pieces make two wonky tree blocks:
A 5 inch square of pink and a 5 inch square of background make two 4.5 inch HSTs.
Two inch squares of pink and background fabric make 3.5 inch four patches.
And then a squirrel invaded my sewing room!
This fabric has been hanging out in my stash for awhile, and I hadn't found a use for it until I pulled it out for pink month and made a tree from a chunk of it. (See top photo.)
Meanwhile, I noticed the fun blocks that Mari has been playing with on her post last week. Mari kindly answered me when I asked in a comment on that post that these simple blocks were made of a 5 inch square and two 2.5 inch squares.
So, inspired by the sunshine fabric, I pulled out a hunk of Kona Butter, and some scraps of turquoise, dark pink, yellow, and purple, made 20 of Mari's blocks, and came up with this!
I think these blocks could make all kinds of fun layouts - this one is my first try.
I'm figuring that these 20 blocks will end up measuring about 23 x 18.5 when sewn together,
so a tabletopper sized squirrel!

***I wrote this post using the new Blogger format, and have figured out some things about it. So maybe I can help any readers who are trying out the new format, too. Just let me know. The one thing that frustrated me is that the new format is supposed to work "better" on mobile devices, but I couldn't use it on my Samsung tablet (which worked fine for the old format), and had to write my post on our desktop computer. I'm going to try to give Blogger some feedback about that, but we'll see if I hear anything back from them!***
