Inspiration in Pink Roses

I am doing the Brown Bag Swap.  And I have been very very bad.  The thing is due April 1st.  Yep, April 1st.  So I decided to get to work on it tonight. 

She sent me roses, lots of roses.  I added some more roses to the group and cut out some squares.  They looked like pink, so I found some Kona something or other that wass pink and made a 14 by 14 grid, for no apparant reason other than it looked like enough at 14.

And I had these great dots on pink.  And no more of the center pink.  But I like the darkness of the dot pink surrounding the squares.  I can't wait until that purple makes it's way into the quilt!  I don't think I did a good job of spreading the purple squares out, I sort of forgot I had them in the bottom of the pile there.

Anybody can put squares in the center of their quilt so I got the idea that it really wanted to live in the corner.  And I am adding right angle rows!  Fun.

Maybe some triangles next!  Or circles, maybe so.

Gotta go grab some sleep, it is very very late.

I'm loving your pink and roses! My favorite quilts are these kind, where you just use what scraps you have and make something funky, yet beautiful,
