So now to the bit of sewing I have done! A couple of months ago I bought a little packet of 2 1/2 inch squares of a French General range, Le Bouquet Francais . Such a pretty selection of fabrics! I have used some of the pieces for applique on Love Entwined. The remainder have been sitting on my sewing table begging to be used. So I had some scraps of shirtings left over from the Benjamin Biggs blocks which I used for sashing. I made this little sweetie.
I used a strip of Josephine, another French General fabric range, for the border. I am really pleased with the result. It really lets the French General fabrics shine in the simple setting. It makes me want to make a full size quilt using the same setting.
The Benjamin Biggs block I am working on for this month has very fiddly pieces! It will be an experience stitching these by machine, I'll have to go very slowly. I have been working on prepping it in fits and starts but must get it finished, ready for the next block which will be released any day now.
I'm afraid my Love Entwined has been languishing on my sewing table but I have been working on my Whig Rose, gradually getting the blocks finished and enjoying the hand sewing.
Enjoy your weekend.
