French General Disappears

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!
