RSC14: February - pink

Our new color challenge for RSC14 is PINK,
 and since it's February, pink is a perfect assignment!
I'd already been admiring this little project and decided to jump into action with my 30's repro scraps.
I selected out some pink scraps -- waaay more than I needed for such a small project -- and got busy
First: little teeny sub-units from 1 1/2" squares
and 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles
They became little pink hearts in just a few  minutes
Next I cut a 3" WOF strip from white background fabric,
 and sub-cut it into 
four alternating squares at 2 1/2"
and six setting squares at 3".
The 3" squares were all cut diagonally once to make HSTs.
All the little pieces were assembled into a center that squared up to just about 9"
Then I hopped over to my pink 1 1/2" strip bag and
auditioned a few strips that might work for borders 
All done, all pink, in less than an hour and a half
