getting started

Pin It French General WIP

After my review of finished projects, and realizing that I kept almost nothing, I decided to get started right away on changing that.

I had started this quilt back in June(ish) 2010, after Carrie Nelson's Schnibbles times two  book came out.

Using a mix of the French General fabric I had (Rural Jardin and Rouenneries), I started cutting and organizing my blocks.  And then I stopped.

Enter La Petite Ecole.  I loved it from the time I saw Natalia post a glimpse of the quilt she designed using the line.

I've almost got the top pieced, and went and picked out some border fabric, along with some gorgeous trim from my local quilt shop yesterday.

Catching up on blog reading and can I just say that I'm feeling rather smug at the moment. And relieved. And psychic.
