Classic pink, black and white




I have memories of black, white and bubblegum pink, rock and roll, and pony tails while growing up in a Philadelphia suburb - such a bold color combination at the time it seemed (hippies and Woodstock were only a few years away)!
This is actually the second block of the same fabrics.  I slashed the first block so much when I saw the photo of it, it looked like many of the photos others have posted of made fabric - or maybe, black, white and pink cole slaw.

It never even crossed my mind to try black and white with the pink. You've done it beautifully! Love it.

Bold choices! I love it. Poodle skirts, capri pants, summer fun. Fantastic!

Actually this fantastic block makes me think more of the late sixties - op art, Peter Max, and Twiggy;s mod mini dresses! Love it!
