More Quilt Blocks .... Pinks for Pink Saturday

It's that time of the week again..where the pinks in all their beautiful shades have a special day. I love to go visiting about and looking at all the wonderful things we all share. Come and join the fun...visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for a list of all the pinky participants. They're all wonderful and such sweeties to visit..I just love Saturdays.
Beverly challenged us to choose a different blog each week to visit..and then to give the link to it. I must admit,I am the worlds worst at attempting to link to a blog, so I will just ask you all to be sure and visit the blog... BubblingOver and the sweet lady that's there..Claudie.."the other CC".
She's one of the sweetest ladies of the blogging world.. and when you visit, let her know the "other CC" sent you..:). Happy Pinks to everyone....

I have some more of the little quilt blocks to show you.... these are some of the blocks that I got..10 blocks for 10 cents. I was and still am, simply amazed that anyone would ever let them go. Thanks to Roslyn that said it looked like a smaller version of the Lone Star pattern and Sandy who looked the pattern up..I agree with Sandy, that it's a variation of the Blazing Star pattern.
There's something rather strange about the little blocks though. They are not all the same size, some are pieced at the sides..and I do wish that someone more knowledgeable than myself could see them up close. All the the outside edges..have been stitched and the stitching removed. So either someone has taken apart a quilt top, or I have a feed sack or flour sack pieces.
In any case...I love the little quilt blocks..and am sharing the pinks and the "near" pinks. maybe they're a tiny bit more toward being a soft peack..but peaches are kinda fuzzy pink as well..doncha agree??? :)

I've had ever so much fun with Beverly and all the pinkies. Thanks again Beverly, for all the hard work you do in gathering our group together. You are an amazing lady and you do an amazing job..we all love you...

Don't you just love it when you find a treasure like that. I'm glad someone found them that truly can appreciate them. Thanks for sharing and thanks for stopping by my blog. I do really appreciate every visit and comment. Hope you had a wonderful Pink Saturday.

  22. Hi there,
    I am a bit late in getting by to see your pink post, but it is super! I don't quilt, but I so love the fabrics and patterns! I so love a great bargain! WOW!! Have a blessed Sunday and thanks for stopping by.

  23. Hi, CC,
    You got quite a bargain on these wonderful quilt blocks! The pattern, material and colors are so pretty! Happy Pink Saturday (a little late) and many blessings to you, dear friend! Vicki

  24. Hi CC, day late here but better late than never! love the quilt blocks. I know NOTHING about quilting but I'm sure you will do something awesome with them! show us when it' finished!
    thanks for stopping by my blog..

  25. pink or peach they look pretty good to me:)

  26. I love your quilt blocks. You do such wonderful work. I would love to be able to quilt but I don't have the patience.

  27. Great blocks and you really got a deal!

    It sounds to me like the blocks had once been sewn together and then taken apart...if the blocks are different sizes, the maker may not have realized the problem until she'd sewn them together.

    If you want to sew them together for a quilt or table runner,you might try using sashing between the blocks-that has worked for me-I could fiddle with different size sashings rather than trim the blocks.

  28. Hi, CC! I'm a little late with my PS visits this week. Love the last 2 with all the pinks.

  29. HI CC!

    I am still completely amazed at what an awesome find you got in those quilt blocks!! They are all wonderful.

  30. Hi CC...I didn't do Pink Saturday this last time but wanted to drop by and say hi anyway. I admire you ladies that quilt so much. If I did all those blocks there is no way they would be pretty and even. :)


I do so enjoy each and every message that is left for me. They sorta make each day a "happy dance day", so please, make sure you leave a comment..Just a hi will make my day all better. :) xx
