Light Pink blocks all make

I dug thru my scraps this time looking for pink prints. I found lots of good stuff! Here are the seven blocks I needed to finish the light pink top. I could not find a scrap of that floral with the light green background so I just substituted another green.
Here is the top all ready to sew together.  It is a bit plain.  I could see it Ann-a-fied (I made that word up) which means Ann of Fret Not Yourself adding some of her fabulous appliqued flowers across this quilt top to jazz it up!
Here are the dark pink blocks that I had seperated from the light pink blocks. I need 17 more to make this a top.
While digging thru my scraps over the last few days I have come up with some darker pink solids. I will be cutting these up and using them for the darker pink blocks I need.   This won't be enough fabric, but I have some darker pink yardage in the stash.
It does take longer to make 16 patch blocks this way - that is, using scraps and it does make quite a mess. I iam just glad that I have my bins of scraps to use

Love the pink scraps. Beautiful quilt tops just waiting for babies to arrive.

Boy oh boy, isn't that the truth about using scraps makes a bigger mess and usually takes longer! But I absolutely LOVE using scraps...they make me happy like a pig wallowing in mud ;-).

some people prefer plainer quilts so I would leave it as is. It would look great in a pale pink room.
