I had so much fun creating this very pink block! Honestly, pink was never a favorite color but when I make projects using beautiful pinks, I cannot, for the life of me, remember why I had a dislike for them.
My background fabrics are Modern Backgrounds by Zen Chic for Moda ( they are awesome). All of the pinks are Liberty of London from my stash and the sweet center fussy cut is from Munki Munki pajamas. Yes, I will cut up anything to make a good fussy cut.
All of my piecing is done with Aurifil 50wt thread. I use a wonderful neutral #2600 ( Dove) that is perfect to use with any color fabric with the exception of pure white. I have even used it on red with great success. The pink for the staged shot is an exceptionally gorgeous variegated pink #4660. I am smitten with it ;o)
