Cathi at Quilt Obsession has used hers to create gorgeous Drunken Path blocks out of charm packs using the Inklingo system. Doesn't this look delightful?......can't wait to see this grow!
Below is a gorgeous quilt called Madeleine Grown Up by Nicole of Sister's Choice Quilts. Look at all those super star blocks which show off this fabric beautifully. Not content with this, Nicole has started another quilt called Elizabeth which is going to be another stunner!
This divine appliqued Fleur de Lis was designed (as well as the whole quilt) by Penny - The Dedicated Appliquist as the centre piece for her beautiful medallion quilt below. I immediately loved this, being French myself & having a weakness for this iconic symbol.
.........and last but certainly not least we have these two beauties created by Ann of Ann's Quilting Journey . Just look at those delightful little baskets above & this beautiful flower garden quilt below. I love the striped fabric Ann has used from the same range for her borders, it sets it off perfectly.

Copyright images used with kind permission, Ann's Quilting JourneyThis week I received Kaffe Fassett's book, Museum Quilts & whilst perusing it again yesterday evening, was immediately inspired by one particular patchwork constructed with clamshells & made into drapes for a four poster bed (which, by the way is currently on show in the V&A Quilt exhibition in London). So I was thinking that this would be a nice project (all be it long term) to do in various shirtings, then I had that light bulb moment........why not use my Rouenneries fabric?
So much inspiration, but this wasn't helping me decide how to use my fabric to try & create something worthy, until last night ...........
A Clamshell quilt was another on my wish list for the future. There appears to be more interest developing in this patchwork since I first saw it mentioned by Karen here, who then very kindly directed me to Jossie's blog, who was also working on one. Jossie is planning on starting up a little group to keep everyone inspired & motivated.........so my decision was made for me, need I say more? LOL
I adore this design & am hoping it will work with Rouenneries, watch this space............
ps. forgot to mention the new French General range, Rural Jardin & coming soon, Lumiere de Noel.........oh dear, think I need to work lots more overtime!
