A French kind of quilt

Don't you love it when you get an idea for a quilt and it comes together really well, this is what happened with this quilt. Months ago I bought these beautiful charm packs called Pom Pom de Paris from work, I didn't have a plan for them at that stage so they just sat in the cupboard. Well the other day I decided to put them to good use and I made this quilt, so easy, just added the cream borders around the squares.

I love the yellow border print, its so soft and delicate. Now it just needs to be quilted.


Tomorrow I'll be back to show you some painting I'll be attempting, it involves a 100 year old cabinet and some cream paint. Very exciting and a little bit scary.

Oh my, the fabrics are very romantic to me. I also love that border fabric! Is it too late to purchase some of those charm packs?

Very pretty, Leanne. French General fabrics make such nice quilts.

That looks awesome! Isn't it funny that something so simple (I seem to get caught up in thinking about making difficult ones... and then not make them!) is so effective and is so very beautiful! Well done! Have fun with the paint!
