ScrapHappy Saturday - Dresses in Pink Make Boys Wink


After playing with 1.5 inch strips earlier this week and finding inspiration on design wall Monday, I put together this mega sized postage stamp block.
 First I sewed all the strips together into these little 6 by 6 squares using the tutorial found here.
Four of the little blocks put together makes a center section that is 12 by 12 blocks for a total of 144 little 1.5 inch squares.  Those get sashed with 12.5 and 14.5 inch white strips.  The final border is made from more 1.5 inch squares that are 14 units long on two sides and 16 on the other.  What pretty pink projects are you up to this on this scraphappy weekend?  Use the linky below to update everyone on your progress so far.  There are still two more pink Saturdays though, so don't fret if your scraps are still in pieces.

Today is the day I officially join your RSC13. I really need this challenge to clean out the stash. Your postage stamp blocks are so cute and inspires me to cut into my strips for more fun.

I really like this! I don't even like pink, but I love all those tiny squares.

I love how your block came out. I wish I had more variety in my pinks.... maybe I need to pull some bits from my midget box.......Hmmmm.

I love all the links. Everything is just so pretty and good. I'll get there eventually but in the meantime you all are giving me some really great information on what to do with my scraps!

So happy to see all these lovely pink entries - the perfect antidote for the yucky weather we've had all week!

Our blocks are similar, my strips start at 2 1/2 inches and are a lot more ordered looking, I like your random scrappy look. Thank you for your tutorial link, I'll give it a try.

I'm a day late again but have made a posting. What happened to Mr Linky? He's disappeared. Do I need to upgrade to use that program?

Your pinks look wonderful :) Next week I'll be tackling the smallies. :))

Love the pink postage stamp project, very cute. Great way to use up strips. This one is on my bucket list.

With weekend volleyball tournaments the last 2 weeks, there's been no chance to get going on my scrappy project for 2013
