I did the math after I started (typical for me) and I don't have enough pink....unfortunately the pink is a shade that I don't have much of in my stash so I'm thinking about adding some red to the pink blocks rather than changing the size of the quilt.

I like this first version best I think -- the only difference is where the two blocks come together -- I like the pink in this one versus the red in the next one so the only red in # 1 would be the pinwheels.

By the way, red pink and brown is not a combination I'd have come up with on my own ....remember this happy block top I made from a charm pack a few months ago??

Edit: Cbear suggested brown pinwheels -- another good choice I think. I'll be writing instructions for this quilt and will post all the different color options regardless of which I end up with. I hope someone will make it in pink & green.

I've got some chunks of pink left over from another project. I hate pink. Do you want them? They can be in the mail tomorrow!

Interesting, I wouldn't have thought to put red with pink & brown, but it works. I prefer #1 too.

i like option one best, as well.

do you have enough brown to do the centers that you have as red in brown? what would that look like?

So many variations with just a change of colour.

I'll start pulling some pinks and greens in anticipation of the directions! I love that color combo!
