Hello all. This month's theme for the Le Challenge craft challenge is - Thriller. I knew that I had a project that I was making as part of a Craftsy course that would work great.
This is "Love Bug" and it is a baby quilt or small lap quilt at 53 X 53 made as part of the Pattern Free Quilt Making course. I was in a mood to just sew with no goal in mind. I used a stack of 5 inch blocks that were left over from a project (please do not ask me how, because I do not know how I managed to cut SO many extra squares). I searched my scrap box and pulled all the pink strings.
My thought was that I would create pink sticks and form some kind of circle to create a love nest. I replaced the middle white squares with a solid pink square and turned the pink sticks a bit. So my "love nest" became a "love bug" (although I guess it could also be a piñata).
I had no idea when I started out sewing and playing that this would become a project. I only stopped because I ran out of fabric and I thought a bug would work with a "thriller" theme.
Please check out all of the other entries at this month's Le Challenge. The next month's theme will be announced tomorrow.
