The French General Came to Visit

The reason for the visit….

Last month I entered a contest hosted by The Fat Quarter Shops Jolly Jabber.

I couldn’t resist. It was for some of the most beautiful fabric!!! Pom Pom de Paris.  The fabric line had been inspired by the gardens at a 14th century home in St. Antonin Noble Val in the South of France where the designer Kaari of The French General had vacationed/stayed with her family!  Just think – a 14th century home and gardens – still standing/inhabitable, and well cared for. Wow!

Anyways, I was sooooooo Blessed to be chosen the winner of the Fat Quarters of the whole fabric collection!!!


Also included with the fabric was a pattern for the Pom Pom de Paris quilt!

And yes, I barely had the box unpacked before I lost possession of the box!!

Oh well,  “they” can have the box – but the fabric and pattern are mine!!! 

LOL     😉    

I don’t even want to know how they both fit in there.    😉   

Now, it’s time to go play with all the pretty fabrics. Yipee!!!

Hmmm….I wonder if I’ll get to dream of Paris and those gardens while sleeping under this one when it’s done????

I sure hope so!    🙂   

 A HUGE “Thank You” to The Fat Quarter Shop, and to The French General for this amazing prize/Blessing!!!!

You made my day!!!     😉
