Just in the nick of time, I finished up my August Color Challenge Block! Designed by Jen of Patterns by Jen, this month's block is all in pink and celebrates the flamingo. If you've made one of these for the challenge, you might notice I had to modify mine a bit - I ran out of the dark pink!

August Color Challenge Block
After I finished the block, I realized there was a section that bothered me. The arrow points to it in the photo below. Too bad it was just about in the center...
Deciding I just wouldn't like leaving it that way, I did some careful surgery, and replaced the light pink square with some of the bird print.
Here are all my color challenge blocks up on the design wall. I'm thinking I'll use some of that red nest print for cornerstones eventually.
This photo does show the color better in my pink block!
Speaking of that red print, the July block is still bothering me! More surgery may be needed... Just for fun I remade the large corner HSTs with a cream fabric and the red print, and just laid them on top of the original block. With a cream square in the center it looks very different!
I think I like that better!
