Is it pink?

I started to add the shocking pink borders onto my Mile a Minute, and then wasn't convinced.  There seemed to be a lot of red, and not enough pink.  Still, I decided to persevere, and here it is with all four borders completed.
Do the pink borders make it look pink?  Not sure, but it certainly doesn't not look pink, if that makes any sense.  Anyway, I've decided on backing and hope to layer it up later on.  Although after all that pastel work, I needed something a bit more interesting.  I came upon the Scrap Attack on stitcthedincolor site and saw these fabulous Japanese X + scrappy blocks. 

They are wonderful for using up scraps, and Amy has a beautifully clear tutorial.  Perhaps I'll just make a few more blocks before I start layering up.  What do you think?!

I think the pink looks good...but I can see what you mean about it maybe not being exactly what you had in your mind...just the same when it is quilted and bound it will be fab...after all anything that is finished and scratched off the list is fab right?

\\\\\\\\\\\i think that pink is a strange colour to identify and it looks green to me. But, I like it.
