Petites Maisons De Noel
Merry Christmas in April!!
I’v been working on a project using these gorgeous French General fabrics from Moda.
This line is called Petites Maisons de Noel, and it is oh so delicious. It has been awhile since I have worked in these more vintagey country colors; I am quite enjoying it and a bit nostalgic for the days when this was my main aesthetic. My wife and I have loved what Kaari Meng started at French General so many years ago for decades now.
You can probably guess which of of my patterns I am working up in this for Quilt Market next Month….but I am not going to reveal it until next month at Market. Just because it seems more thrilling that way….. I know…CHEAP thrills…. I need to get out more. 🙂
One cool thing about this project that I will show you now was that I had Teresa Silva of Quilting is My Bliss quilt it. Her work is PHENOMENAL!!
For today, I thought I would show you what some of the scraps from that project produced. The photo is pretty dark, sorry about that. That darker bit is a dark green not black. 🙂
You KNOW I am all about those scraps. Something I am sure I inherited from my Mom even though I am not sure she would create blocks like this. Mom wasn’t a quilter at all, so don’t know what she would have liked to do. Very likely more traditional concepts.
So that’s it for today. A little cozy winter scrap quilt beginning by the fireside . . . . in the midst of these very Springy days here in the Pacific Northwest.
Of course the Southern Hemisphere is heading into their fall now. It’s funny, but I have never imagined kangaroos in the snow. Or Drop-Bears.
Okay, that’s enough rambling for today.
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy,
