Another BOM and RSC - Pink

This is the January Block of the OKC Modern Quilters Guild I think that it was supposed to finish at 12.5 x 12.5, but I came up short on the sides and had to trim it to 12 x 12.  Oh well, I'll deal with it in the coming months when I see how I mess up then, lol. 

I decided that it would be better to try to make 3 blocks a month for Angela's ScrapHappy Saturday, Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013, so I added the block on the bottom.   That would yield 36 blocks and a 72 x 72 quilt to start with and I can go from there with borders.  Or I could go 5 x 7 and a 60 by 84 to start with.  I have almost a whole year to decide.  

01-11-2013  While I was in the pink, I thought that it would be fun to do some little 16 patch blocks.  To me they are versatile blocks and hopefully, I'll come up with something rainbowy by the end of the year.
I know a lot of people don't like pink, but I've decided that pink makes me happy. 
I'm still short one block that I hope to do this year, it's the Civil War quilt on Craftsy "Repiecing the Past", with Kaye England.  I have tried to watch the video 3 or 4 times now, she's very interesting, but she is very detailed.  I have tried to wait until after watching TV with my husband and then watch it on my Ipad.  Big mistake, I keep falling asleep.  Today, after DH's doctor appointment, maybe I'll watch it on my computer, get the block done, and then back to my Scrap Vomit and my Easy Street.  It would be nice to start the year off with two pretty new quilts for the beds in my home.
It's time again for Angela's ScrapHappy Saturday - Dresses in Pink Make Boys Wink - Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013.  Go here to see more.

ScrapHappy Saturday, Tickled Pink

I've put my Easy Street aside for now and am trying to catch up on a few other things.  These are for Angela's ScrapHappy Saturday, Tickled Pink.  I'm not sure how I'll do it, if I'll do all the blocks the same except for color, or do different blocks, but here are the first ones for the year.   I didn't really participate last year and I loved some of the colorful scrappy quilts, so this year I'm going to try to keep up.   Here's Angela's blog, and there is a linky, too.
