Patterns by Jen-August colour challenge-PINK

Well this year has certainly held its challenges. But now for a little relaxation. 

This year Jen has selected birds as her focus for determining the colour of the month and it is no surprise to anyone who followers her that Flamingos made this list. So pink it is. 
I was thinking pink when I made this paper pieced flamingo designed by Janeen at Quilt Art designs. But it needed to translate into our themed block.
A wee bit of texture for feathers and a pink block was assembled. This year Jen has added the option of doing a two tone on tone block or using black or white for your background colour. I decided to try the black background and so far am liking it. 
And here are six of my blocks so far. We are well past the middle of the year so you should be seeing your blocks building up.
There are several bloggers showing their spin on the pink block this month. It would be a good one for a charity quilt as there are no points to cut off, just straight stitching. Please visit these bloggers to see how they have interpreted the August block. 

And if that was not enough there are prizes for linking up your finished block. Check these out.
