2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge, January, Pink, Week 4

I LOVE, love, love pink and hate to see this month end as I have lots of pink scraps. Mother and I have bought small pieces of pink fabrics forever. When we go to fabric stores, we linger at the shelves with pink bolts of fabrics.
During this last week of pink fun, I covered a little note pad. Because it looked like a rectangle pieced block in a photo, I placed an uncovered note pad below the covered one as a before and after shot. They make nice little gifts.
The large heart block is make using a quilt pattern I bought last year from the Missouri Star Quilt Company. It was a Daily Deal. I may or may not make the entire quilt, but I don't mind having some orphan blocks around. They usually end up pieced into the backing of some of my quilts or made into hot pads. Some become donation blocks for charity quilts. I think I'll be making more of these heart blocks for fun. They were easy.
Connie posted instructions for a "Crossroads" block this week and I had to piece one. They are fun.
I made three more 8.5" blocks.
Made a pink house block to go in my row of houses for the Bee In My Bonnet Row Along : )
I didn't cut any more pink 2/5" squares or 5" tumblers this week.
To see what others made with their pink scraps this week, go here.

So many pretties - I love the idea of the small notepad - done the bigger ones, but these would be great to do for our quilt guild's end of the yr. picnic for each member.

What great pink pieces! The little notebook is just adorable, but the house is the one that makes me smile. Glad you were able to put so many of your special pink bits to good use this month.

My goodness you certainly were having fun with your pinks this month, weren't you! Love them all!!! And what a cute idea to cover that little note pad. Did you glue it down to the covers or make envelope covers?
