A French General Moment...


I couldn't help but be tempted by the little packs of 2 1/2 squares in the shop..... I chose the French General pack and came home to play with it ... thought it might be useful for making a mockup of a block design I've been considering but it didn't really work for that ..... so what could I do with the squares?   Then I remembered Sue's scrappy Trip around the World .... this wasn't exactly scrappy but maybe a Trip would make use of the squares and I'd see what the fabric looks like made up....

Here's my mini Trip..........




I had to add a few extra squares to finish off the piece .... good for a cushion or perhaps a bag?  I'm trying to think of other ways of using these squares .............any ideas?

This led to pulling out some small blocks I'd made using an earlier range of French General, for a project  that didn't go ahead!!!   I joined them into a nine patch and added some circles....  the red birds again....
and here's the result....

  1. Hi Carolyn, love the birds, especially the background piecing. I realise that's the effect I'm trying to get with my blue blocks but I don't think it will work the way I have cut them. Hoping youcan run through it with me Monday,
    Sue
