We are excited to announce the arrival of our Spring Quilting Collection from Moda!
Le Bouquet Francais arrived this week at French General and in all good quilting stores! Filled with shades of blue, yellow, grey and dusty red...this line was inspired by the gardens in Southern France. We have a great selection of Bouquet at the shop, as well as a few of our
still in stock.
Hope your springtime quilting is as colorful as can be!
We're taking our Indigo Workshop on the road and heading to New York City in April! We will be offering a one day workshop at the South Street Seaport Museum on Sunday, April 27th from 10-4pm. Join us to learn how to build an Indigo vat, the ancient Japanese craft of Shibori, and dyeing textiles all shades of blue. This is a special French General workshop taught by Kaari and Molly Meng - we hope you can join us!

Now that I have learned to quilt, I have fallen in love with precuts! Precuts are exactly what they sound like - precut pieces of fabric all ready to be sewn together - no cutting involved! For each of our fabric collections with Moda, we receive the charm pack precut which consists of 42 squares of 5" fabric - a piece of each -
if you will!
In anticipation of our new Spring Moda collection, Le Bouquet Francais, we made up a simple and fun quilt for Fat Quarter Shop using their Charm Pack Cherry pattern.
Here's a fun video they shot with step by step instructions:
