Jardin Parisien!


Yesterday I picked up one my new quilts ‘Jardin Parisien’ for the quilters,

made from the latest French General range Ville Fleurie.

Today being rainy/sunny and struggling to reach double figures for much of the day,


Weather Station 13-7-16


is the perfect day to be inside by the fire stitching the binding.

(A chilly 3·7°c outside & a comfortable 18·7°c inside.)

Kits will be available from The Patchwork Tea House,

from either their website or one of the many shows they will be visiting over the next few months.

Bon Voyage de Paris!


Who doesn’t love French General fabrics, personally I can’t get enough.

Always a new quilt when a new range comes out.

The latest range ‘Bon Voyage’ is no exception.

With a design already drawn there was no time to waste.

Before I knew it, the quilt top was completed &

off to the quilters. Next was to find the right spot to

photograph for the pattern cover. These old cases were just perfect.
