For the past month I've seen a few mentions of Lucy and Nat's monthly Le Challenge popping up on some friendly blogs and thought that sounded like a fun idea. I just didn't quite get around to deciding to actually participate. Until last night at 11 pm that is!! I think I may have had a moment of sweet insanity, but here I am joining in having only taken the decisive leap 24 hrs ago.
So, what do you make to fulfil Le Challenge when you've given yourself precisely two and a half hours of a Monday night to create something in the geometric theme? A little quilted coaster of course!
This is a little 4" paper pieced Lemoyne Star block, border added and lovely geometrically quilted chevrons to finish. I could kick myself for changing my fabric choice on the star points after I started stitching. I got so carried away by loving the pink berry print that I completely forgot it wouldn't contrast with the white background fabric like my original green choice would have. Doh! Anyway, it's just for me in my sewing space and I like it. Eh voila, le challenge is met!
Are you playing along? Fancy having a go next month? Nat and Lucy's theme for next time is wings! Hmm, might need more than 24hrs for that one!
