Pink UFO Sighting

It's pink month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, the weekly color-themed, scrap-busting link up. Besides making the blocks for my ongoing RSC projects, I have been spending some time on a pink UFO. Last weekend I made four more of the pink and brown Shooting Stars blocks, bringing my total number of blocks up to 12, enough for a throw quilt. Here are two of the newest blocks. You can find a tutorial for this pattern at Anyone Can Quilt.





The next step is framing the blocks. I am alternating pink and brown tilted frames on each block. Half of them have been finished so far, and I hope to get the rest done this weekend.




Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge every Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday.

  5. It is turning out to be a wonderful quilt. The colors are unusual, but they are just right for all the movement you've got going with the tilted blocks. Keep up the good work!

  6. Thanks for the link to the tutorial for the block you are making! It looks like it takes a LOT of concentration. Needless to say, I won't be making any of those until after the boys go back to school!!

  10. That's the block I learned in Wink & a Smile. "Shooting Star" makes much more sense! Haven't seen them set wonky before; I like it.
