Crazy Pink Tote

The front and back of my latest experimental crazy quilt tote:

I selected shades of pink for the tote (including the very bright hot pink floral) as color anti-aversion therapy, and to challenge myself to work it into something I felt was beautiful.

Here are some detail shots:

I think it was mostly a success. What I learned from this exercise is that while I may never love hot pink I don't have to avoid it. This tote also convinced me to try another, subtler version with some other colors and prints for more balance:

This second pink tote came out so well that I'll be giving it away over at my Disenchanted & Co. blog tomorrow with some other goodies, so if you'd like a chance to win it, stop by.
