February Color Annoucement

The new color for February will be pink.  Technically this Saturday is still part of January, but I'm posting now for those of you who would like to get started on a new color.  Along with a new color comes a brand new fabric giveaway!  This is the pink pack of hand dyed fabric  from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Snack Pack.  Vicki Welsh dyed it for our challenge, and I will be using mine for the sampler blocks this month.  If you would like to be entered to win, just leave a comment on on this post with your favorite shade of pink.  I've always liked ashes-of-roses since I read The Thorn Birds in junior high.

I like a medium pink. every time I wear pink (or red) I always think of my grandmother- she told me that was my color. thanks for the early announcement- although I'm still slogging through blue! (almost done!)

Hmm... My daughter loves bright (electric? Neon?) pink. I'm more of a deep pink or pale pink kinda girl.

One of my favorites! (And the photo looks salmon-y on my screen, too)

The Joyful Quilter said...

I'm not much of a "pink person" however, my favorite shade is Hot Pink. I am SO happy that we have a NEW Color of the Month... even though it's not technically the end of January yet. Thanks, Angela!

Charlene S said...

Oh, I am not a fan of real pink but I love rose pink or hot hot pink. My LQS even gives me a discount when I buy pink yardage. LOL

Ursula Yeo said...

I love all pinks but am most drawn to coral pinks.

Jean said...

I like all shades of pink. I had a dusty pink summer suit that I loved, and always received compliments when I wore it, but since I've lost a lot of weight due to dietary challenges, it no longer fits.

Deb A said...

I almost started cutting out pink squares for the trip block last week but held off! I like bubble gum pink.

Lydsfire said...

Hot Pink is my favorite shade of pink.

Karen said...

Soft shade of pink is my favorite.

Dee W said...

Pink is a nice color. I want a Neon Pink! I'm making a baby quilt and have a baby pink, everything is low volume, it's so hard for me to work on. But I will persevere, it will be awesome.

Jennie in GA said...

Pink is my second favorite color, though strangely, I don't use it a lot. I love dusty pinks best.

Patti Guzniczak said...

I love the old retro "bubble gum" pink color!

Kathy's A Quilter said...

favourite pink is "baby cheeks" pink, just before they slip into a milk coma♥ Looking forward to switching it up to pink for February.

Cathy Kizerian said...

Yay for pink! (and I thought for sure you would announce red, hehehe). My favorite shade of pink is probably a peachy-pink, although I have hardly ever met a pink I didn’t like! :-) Can`t wait to finish up the blue on my work table so I can start on pink!

Heather said...

Pink is my favorite color in almost any form...especially pale baby pinks! I am so ready to sew up my pink spools!

Magpie Sue said...

My favorite pink is an intense fuchsia. And I LOVE pink with orange, which was considered a huge no-no when I was growing up!

Terri said...

I figured the color would be pink or red for Valentine's Day. I'm so glad to be sewing another color. My fav would be the sweet baby girl pink, although hot pink is good, too.
Hugs

AnneP said...

I love a deep fuchsia pink - will check my stash and pull some out

Sarah said...

Pink is perfect for February! And since it's my least favorite color, it's good to be "forced" to use it in my projects for the year :)

Sheila said...

Pink is perfect for February. I like bright pink the best : )

I can't choose one shade of pink. I love them all! Guess, though, I'd go with the salmon pinks if I could only have one.

A Hot pink towards the darker side is my favorite - Fuchsia.

Flamingo pink, of course!

Aunt TC said...

I like Bubblegum Pink and Sky Blue Pink - the first due to the word and the sweetness, latter as I loved seeing the sky like this as it meant a sunny day for tomorrow. Thanks for asking.

Lisa J. said...

I used to hate pink but I've put it into several quilts and now I love it. I like a medium shade lighter than bubblegum. I'm hoping to join up with the scrappy Saturdays forgot about it until last week. So I guess I'll start with pink although blue is my favourite colour and I probably have more blue scraps than anything else.

Amy said...

Bubblegum pinks are a favorite of mine :)
Thanks for the early sneaky-peak for February too. I'm not sure if/when I'll be able to get some sewing time in, but.... maybe Sunday ;)

I really like pink, but the shade I choose depends on what I'm pairing it with. Usually it is a hot pink or baby pink that I have on hand. Really, pink goes with most every color!

aus_chick said...

Oh gosh, I don't know the names of all the pink shades, haha, but I did read the Thorn Birds just a few years ago - I saw it at Costco and decided to read it, and then realized it was set in Australia which is where I was born! I guess "coral" is a pink right? I keep leaning to that lately :)

Pale, pale pink is such a pretty color. This could be a tricky color because I don't have a ton of pink scraps!

I like strong saturated pinks - especially mixed with black and white :)
