French General Disappears

Friday, October 2, 2009

New fabrics from French General is the palette for my latest project. Rounneries is the line. Very pretty, very French chic. These are all cottons, but the line does have a toweling that is very pretty~perfect for dish towels and new pillows! I'm thinking a red raw silk for an inner border and a coordinating linen for the outer border. The fabric line itself lends well to the Fall season. This is a store sample for HRQ~a disappearing 9-patch.

I've actually been working in the store a bit lately. Very fun to be surrounded by pretty fabric and happy fabric shoppers! Carmen and crew are preparing for one of the biggest shows on the west coast, Pacific Quilt International~Honey Run has a booth each year and oodles and oodles of kits and fabric are being packed into huge boxes in preparation for the show. So, if you happen to be in the Santa Clara, CA area stop in at the show and the HRQ booth! Well, back to the quilt. . .

Happy Friday everyone~enjoy your weekend!


  1. Red raw silk, linen... that is going to be very elegant. I WISH I could go to Santa Clara!

  2. working in a quilt shop...every quilters fantasy! your quilt looks like it will be beautiful!

  3. This quilt is going to be just gorgeous! I love your idea for the red silk inner border and linen for the outer. I think that will make this quilt even more elegant and chic looking. Would love to be able to visit you at the shop sometime!

  4. It's a beautiful quilt. The fabric is well suited to the pattern. Doesn't look too simple or too busy - a perfect balance.

  5. I actually did look for you, Dorrie! I didn't see you at the booth when I was there Sunday.
