2 Quilt Blocks - Fight Breast Cancer

The Old Red Barn Co. has put out a call for 12.5" quilt blocks to go into quilts that will be raffled/sold to raise money for a cure for Breast Cancer.

Naturally, I had to make 2 blocks. What was my problem you ask? Lack of Pink!! So yea, I had to go out and get some pinks to add to my stash.

If you've read this blog for a while, you know I'm a real fan of the Earthy tones, and Pink isn't that high up on my list. Well, I got some marbles and these pinks are growing on me. It's still not my favorite color, but it's definately growing on me.

Here are my 2 blocks:
Churn Dash:
Fight Like a Girl- Beat Breast Cancer

9 Patch:
Fight Like a Girl- Beat Breast Cancer

And then I'm in a Valentine Swap with the "My Favorite Quilters" group on Flikr, and I've been partnered up with the incredibly talented JMeghlin and we've decided to exchange Table Toppers. And of course, since it's Valentines Day, I'm planning on using Pink.

Naturally, I had to make one of my all time favorite blocks - the Spinner:
Pink Marbles - Spinner Block

I may or may not use it. But I do like it - and since it's so pink - for me anyway - that, is really saying something!

I also made this block for LeighLu for the 3x6 Bee. Her requested colors were Green, Yellow and White.
