Pretty in Pink
When Angela announced the color for July -- watermelon pink -- I couldn't find many scraps. Which seemed odd because that has been a favorite color of mine to work with in the past.
I had too many things on my agenda early in the month, including 9 days on the road, to dig too deep. But once I returned home I looked in my scrap organization system (I use that term loosely) and found a pile of 1-1/2" strips and a few 2-1/2" strips.
With just a week left in the month, I thought I should move some of those scraps out. My first thought was to make some string blocks. But since the scraps were cut to a uniform size, it seemed foolish to use them as strings. So I set about stitching two strips together, then foursies. Subcut those stripsets into 1-1/2" chunks and before I knew it I had about 20 of these cute 16-patches made.
