One thing I know for sure
is that Quilters love to share
their finished quilts.
And why not!
Each is a work of art,
a labor of love,
a creative expression
using color, fabric and thread.
We're proud of those
have you figured out
I have something to show
that I've finished?
"La Fete De Noel"
a Moda pattern by French General
This quilt has a story.
A while ago, one of the Quilty Buddy's neighbors
unexpectedly passed away and my friend was
asked to come to the house and take and share everything
that was in this gal's sewing room.
One of the items I took was this kit.
It had been started, but there were some
That's possibly one of the reasons it
Another reason might have been that
the pattern was no longer with the kit.
There's no way of knowing when
the kit and pattern became separated.
I could find a photo of the pattern cover, but
it was no longer available from Moda
and the French General just had
a couple of corrections for the directions
on her website.
So using some math skills,
I figured out the pattern based
on the few things I knew.
The red and green does have
a Christmas feel to it. The fabrics were
a Christmas line from French General, but I think
it could be enjoyed anytime.
Because this quilt was gifted to me,
I plan to share it with someone else.
I think the neighbor would be pleased.
On another note,
watching Running Man
yesterday reminded me of the
importance of using the right equipment for the job,
quilting or otherwise..
If you decide to stain the trim on
make sure you
get the right kind of "safe" equipment.
Until Next Time-
