Can you handle this much pink?

Growing up with bright red hair made me have an aversion to certain colors. We have already discussed my avoidance of all things orange. Now I am admitting my aversion to pink. And red, for that matter. I do not own a single piece of red clothing. The only thing I own that is pink is such a pale pink I would barely call it pink. How many times can I use pink in one sentence?
This is all to say that this is a very "Maverick" piece for me. Way out of my comfort zone. Notice I had to put some blue in there to be able to get through it. Being pink AND such wild prints was a real departure from my usual comfort zone. Yes, blue and yellow. yada yada yada.

Anyway, this is the last Project Linus top sitting here, so now I get to get pieceing again! Yeah! First I am going to make myself get the binding put on these two so I can take them in and drop them off.

Right now, its time for lunch and a nap. I told Maddie she needed to take a nap today because we have bible class tonight and then when we get home she wants to watch "Mythbusters". And then she has to get up early to go back to school tomorrow. She, at almost 7, is addicted to science shows. On New Year's Eve, they were running a Mythbusters marathon and she loved it! She also loves to watch Zoom on PBS as soon as she gets home from school.

Wow...way pink! I know how you feel about certain colors, being a redhead myself (although it's not as red as it used to be!) I do wear red though, I have a red sweater on right now. But there are so many colors I just can't wear!

I like pink so I love your quilt! I'm thinking pink might be my next favorite color . . when I'm finished with purple. :)

I can understand about not wearing certain colors. I look like death warmed over in naturals, esp khaki. These quilts certainly turned out fun and bright - the little girls will love them.

Oh that pink quilt is awesome! some little girl is going to go crazy over it!

My daughter has red hair, but the soft auburn red type. I used to keep her away from clothes that were orange, pink or red. But you know what - I found out she looks great in orange! Her hair somehow goes with orange. But pink/red still doesn't work!

I can't wear completely makes me look like I'm washed out, even the whites of my eyes look jaundiced!

I love your pink's such a HAPPY quilt, and who ever gets it is going to love it....and good for you for stretching your color comfort zone and using up fabrics in the process on a very worthwhile project!

It's a lot of fun! Mythbuster's is very cool and I have a crush on the guy with the mustache. Ask Maddie if she does, too.

Oh, but Sarah. Mary Ellen Hopkins says that "Reds clash well." I'm just certain she meant red hair and pink/red clothes as well as red fabrics! LOL
