Our challenge finished in a quilt

As a challenge, all the members of the Golden Lion Quilters were given 2 fabrics at Christmas to be used in a project with squares and rectangles. There was this japanese inspired fabric on the left, with a blue background. I liked that one.
And then there was this pale pink and green fabric , in a completely different style and colours.

They didn't go together and that was the challenge.
I managed to find some fabrics from my stash that went with the blue, but the pink was more difficult.
But at the end I think the number of fabrics mean that they blend together, so the result is not too bad.

  I kept the blocks pretty big so the quilt would be made quickly. It's a lap size and will be used in the family.

 It has been given to Frances who leads our group as I will miss the meeting when all members bring their production. That's a shame but my brother is coming next week with his family and I'm really looking forward to having them all here.
And because we cleaned the house a lot to put it on the market, I am not too worried about last minute tidying up. It will be easy.
Moving in a month though will be a different matter.
Enjoy your sewing.
