Monthly Color Challenge August 2020

This months color challenge from is a favorite color of mine and at least 2 granddaughters.   We love pink.   In fact I have been making these bench cushions, using this awesome flamingos fabric I found on clearance at Joanns.

So, now on to the block for this month.

  I love this block.   It definitely goes together quite fast.   I was able to do a lot of chain piecing, and then pressing all at once, then put it together and so a final press.

 You can get the pattern for free by visiting Jen

This block would work well to make a few throw pillows to go on my benches and swing.

  I can imagine a quilt made out of several of these blocks and I can picture how I might want to quilt it.      In fact, I am going to play with some ideas and see what I can come up with on this, because if it works right, it can be 1 of my 9 for grandkids for Christmas.     That will be my goal for this month is to at least start working on it.   Question is should I do all the same fabrics or should I go scrappy pinks?

I can't wait to see your blocks, so please make sure to link up with Jen at the end of the month.   I will definitely be back later in the month to share the progress I have made on the quilt.  So I ask you to please answer the question above to give me some ideas.

Please join the other bloggers today to see their blocks.
