It's been so exciting round these parts I completely forgot about revealing my Le Challenge make this month.
Firstly I went to get my machine re-repaired yesterday. I've not tried it out yet, but it worked OK in the shop.
Secondly, yesterday was a red letter day here chez quiltova. We were finally connected to the main drains! Yes, that is VERY exciting. If you live with a septic tank, you will appreciate just how brilliant it is! I could talk about it for hours, but you have to be a septic tank owner too, otherwise you will drop off to sleep! And I know, all you non septic owners will think this very sad. Never mind!
On to my make for the maritime theme of this months Le Challenge. Now I'm not really a Hello sailor sort of girl, nor do I really do blue and white, so I was struggling a bit. Then I found this block
I like the back side of a paper pieced block - it looks so tidy!
And I've got a nice bit of Modern Meadow put aside for the back
As you can see, I haven't actually finished making it into a cushion yet, so I don't know if Lucy and Nat will allow it, but I have a good excuse. When I go to the Fat Quarterly Retreat next month, I am taking Mandy's hand quilting class, and I shall be taking this with me to work on.
Why not hop over to Le Challenge to see what everyone else has been making. There's all sorts of different things.
