More French Vintage . . . .

So the last time I blogged about French Vintage, the ThimbleCreek Pattern by Joe Wood,


you saw this.



Now it looks like this!

I'm very happy with my background choices so far, the center four blocks, with the slightly lighter background fabric, just ever so slightly out sparkle the surrounding stars.

The next border of stars are darker still,


they look like this . . . . .


One day it looks and feels like spring around here then the next day we wake up to snow on the ground, regardless of the weather, it's time to pack up the snowmen that hang out around my house through the winter months and break out some color! As much as I love that red and green star quilt in my living room I'm ready for a change, guess I'll haul out the big ladder and hang a new quilt this weekend. I'm not sure which one, but that will be the fun part, picking a new quilt, stop back by for an update!

Let's all think Spring!!

  4. I love your block. I have to wait starting the French Vintage because I have to finish some other projects. I'am also in a spring mood. Look at my blog http://rennie-stitchinbitch.blogspot.com and you will see the sun shining in Leiden a small town in the Netherlands. Love to you!

  6. Would you share the fabric numbers of the greys you have selected? I have a huge collection of French General fat quarters and would love to make this quilt, but I can't seem to settle on the background fabrics. I would love your help!

  7. As usual, your new set of blocks are every bit as beautiful as the first two sets! It is going to be a lovely quilt, to be sure! And your piecing is amazing! :)

  14. I've said it before and I have to say it again, I LOVE this quilt. I don't think there is a line by French General that I don't love. Beautiful job.

  15. I'm waiting for Moda or someone else big in the quilt world to get ahold of you and strike up a deal. Your use of fabrics, patterns.,and the way you play around with the pattern idea just make me think they would need you on the payroll. Your work is outstanding.
