Rouenneries Deux Giveaway


Here we are...doing it all over again! After our first Moda fabric collection, Rouenneries, was such a wonderful surprise, we thought....why not do it again? We've picked out the best prints and added a handful of new designs all in classic shades of juicy reds (Penny's description), faded reds, dusty hemps and tea stain - with a bit of blue and grey touches thrown in to freshen things up. We've even added a cheater cloth - a patchwork design using some of our favorite prints.
I'm getting a little ahead of myself, since Rouenneries Deux won't be in quilt shops until March 2012.... but, thanks to Moda, I have a handful of precuts that I would love to giveaway - so you can get a head start on your favorite Rouenneries projects. If you worked with the original Rouenneries, released in Fall 2009, you know that this collection of fabric is perfect for quilts, clothing and home accessories. For just some of the beautiful projects designed using Rouenneries, look here.
Leave us a comment with your name and if you like, tell us your favorite second time around story. You'll be entered in our drawing for one of four bundles of Rouenneries Deux. Isn't it always better the second time around?! Bonne Chance!

Thank you releasing that collection again. I love everything French General. My second time story well, having my beautiful son John.

Sherri said...

Love knowing Rouenneries will be released again! It's one of my favorites. Second time around...well...I'm teaching English again after not teaching for nearly 20 years...and loving it!

theodora said...

I adore the fabrics... they are the best for so many things.
How wonderful to have them with us again....
March will be a special time !

Debbie B Sam said...

Yeah!!! I missed most of them the first time around. These would be the perfect fabric for a quilt for one of my besties :) Second time around - not too sure about that yet :)

Margaret said...

Oh I'm so excited to hear about this new fabric collection! I think my second time around story has to be how I picked up cross stitching for a second time after years of not stitching. Now it's about all I do. I want to get back into quilting again though. Then I'll have a second time around with quilting too. lol!

Cathi said...

I am absolutely thrilled to hear there's going to be Rouenneries Deux!! I am just about finished the Drunkard's Path quilt I've made using Rouenneries and was actually feeling sad that I was almost finished working with those glorious fabrics.
Second time around story? I started doing a little bit of embroidery after years of not doing any and found I quite liked it as a bit of a break but quilting is my absolute favourite.

sko_G knits said...

wow. as hard as i have tried to have a bit of each collection by the time i got wind of French General, Rouenneries was nowhere to be found. i am so glad that it's back...

well, second time around...i've lost a tennis match in the finals of a tournament to this one guy, Scott Nicholson, and i will have my chance at him again this weekend at the Home Depot center. so let's hope this second time around story has a happy ending!!

Funky Kim said...

OH my goodness! I'm very excited for this collection to be released! I missed out the first time around.

My second time around in marriage was the best thing I've ever done with my life!

Jan said...

Love the new fabric. I really don't have a 2nd time around story, except maybe sewing. I sewed everything, since I was 8, then after sewing my daughters prom and formal dresses, I just stopped. 15 years later, I started quilting.

Christine said...

the fabric is beautiful...I'm having a second try at machine quilting...after deciding it was too hard first time!

Rebecca D said...

This is my FIRST time around with Rouenneries, but the fabrics are awesome, and I love, love, love red. Second time around - I'm 40 years older than my daughter, so "second childhood" is an apt expression. It's really fun the second time -almost more fun than the first!

Nancy in WI said...

That first line was the absolute best and I have always been sorry I didn't buy more before it was gone! I am so excited it's coming out again! Who would have thought? I made a Schnibbles pattern with Rouenneries so if I make something else out of it, that would be the "second time around!"

Mary said...

OMG this is exciting news. I have made two quilts that I absolutely love from this fabric and have many more in mind. Awesome! I would love to see this fabric ahead of time. Yes I would love a second time around with this fabric - in a minute! Thank you for the opportunity to win.

TheLazyQuilter said...

Sitting here so excited about Rouenneries Deux!!!

My 2nd time around... like someone else, my second son. My boys are my treasures. :)

Tonya said...

Love these colors and need to sew a quilt. Second time around-gave up sewing clothes after spending too much money and getting poor fitting clothes. Came back to sewing 5 years ago when I decided it was easier and more fun to quilt.

Kathleen Sigg said...

I love Rouenneries and Rouenneries Deux is twice the delight! And of course, Love is devine the second time around, she said with a smile.

Rossie said...

Fabulous! I love all things French General. 2nd time around? Try machine quilting - again!

Marcia W. said...

Rouenneries was released before the quilting obsession settled into my psyche, so missed the first time around. Hope to win so do not miss it the second time around in March, and can actually make a Kool French General quilt! Thanks for the chance. The closest quilt shop carries mainly batiks so would have to locate/order online. mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

Ruth K said...

Oh boy, Oh boy. Since I'm a new quilter when I started reading blogs and understanding collections, I was just barely able to grab some Rural jardin (wich I had just grabbed a fat quarter set not long ago) It had been impossible for me to get a hold of Rounneries so I'm more than anxious to get a hold of this collection. My second time around at this moment is bringing son number two to university and just as heart breaking as the first time :(---- :)

Denise said...

Love the fabrics! My second time story is after raising two children as a SAHM, I have finally finished my college degree only 27 years after I began!

Lesly said...

Such a classic collection, Rouenneries - I'm so glad it's coming back! My second time around - I'm quilting again after a 15 year hiatus!

Michelle said...

So excited about the *new* collection. Can't wait to whip up a quilt!

SarahK said...

Love these fabrics. I am working on two quilts right now using them. Can't wait to see how you've updated them!

Jamie said...

Oh, I love the reds! As for '2nd time around', I think these lovely fabrics would be perfect to use on my second quilt, which will also incorporate some embroidery projects I've been working on! I actually had a 'needlework' class in college (1978) and swore I'd never do it again... but here I go! Jamie V in MT

Cathy said...

I always love your fabrics! So lovely. My second time around is what I am doing in the second half of my life. You know, the part after mid-life, when the kids leave and you have an empty nest. I started a lavender farm and soap making business. I love your fabrics for lavender drawer liners!

CJ said...

Oh how exciting! I am so looking forward to Rouenneries Deux, the little sneak peek up there is so promising!!
My second time around story - when we got married I did NOT want children at all then one day I said to dh, let's have a baby! That was so sweet we decided to have a second one. NO REGRETS!

Jemellia said...

Oh, I was so excited to see Rouenneries coming back! I cannot think of a second time around story at the moment...

Laurie in Iowa said...

I loved Rouenneries the first time and I'm thrilled you'll be releasing Act II. It's a fabulous collection that you'll be tweaking to make even better.

Susie said...

Oh I'm so excited for this collection!!! I've done patchwork but I would love to use these fabrics for my very first quilt! (Guess that's a first time around story...!)

My second time around story... all I can focus on lately when two times is mentioned, is we just moved over this past weekend, and we get to do it all over again in two months! I like my first story better don't you? ;)

Cassie said...

I would love to have this fabric to make something special. Red is definitely my color, and the fabrics reminds me of my unforgettable trip to France many years ago as a young teen. I can't think of a personal second time around story. My life has taken many twists and turns, but the adventures always seem to be new ones!

Jeanell said...

Only got a charm pack the first time around. I'll be sure to get yardage the second time, yea!

cakegirl said...

What a beautiful collection! Thank you for a very generous giveaway.
Best second time around story - finding a box of Quimper dishes at a second hand store for $2.00!

Kathleen Grace said...

I don't have any second time around stories but I would love a chance to win some of this gorgeous fabric! The colors and patterns are lovely!

Anonymous said...

Love anything French General...at once, earthy AND dreamy! My second time around story is Michael--man of my dreams captured into reality on our wedding day 10 years ago and the icing on the cake...our son, Jake Henry now turned 3. Thanks for the opportunity for some lush fabric.

Vicki K. said...

FG are my favorite Moda fabrics...it will be hard to wait until next year! (Or maybe I won't have to...) I'm noticing that embroidery on clothing that is lately popular is much like what I embroidered on some of my clothes in the 70's!

Kathy MacKie said...

I am so in love with Rouenneries and now there is deux. Be still my heart and if I can't win it through your awesome giveaway well then I certainly will looking for it in my local quilt shops.

kelly lautenbach said...

So excited! 2nd time around? I bought a new car that I adored and foolishly traded it. When I realized the error of my ways, i wished out loud that I'd never gotten rid of my car to the dealership. Just so happened that they had one come in used that was identical to mine. I jumped at the chance to buy it and found out as I was signing the papers that it WAS my car that I'd originally bought. :)

Miranda said...

Merci beaucoup! J'adore les Rouenneries...so I try to get the number two's aswell. Thanks for trowing in this give away.

Chris Gerke said...

I love the reds in this collection. My second time story would have to be my 32 yr. marriage to my second hubby.

MonikaC said...

I love Rouenneries! I am so excited about Deux! I loved being a mom the first time, but didn't think I would have the chance to be a mom a second time. Now, I am and I love it!

Jane, Naples, Florida said...

Beautiful fabric, cannot wait for
March 2012! My favorite second time around was my 2nd trip to
Paris with my husband!

Ellen Easter said...

I have only a little bit of the first release left so can't wait for the second.
My second time around story is my rescue dog - love her!!!!

Bec Clarke said...

This is the best news. I have a charm pack of the first release and haven't been able to bring myself to use it. Now I can get some extra fabric to go with it.

Jennifer said...

I just Love the French General rang.
I was a bit slow falling in love with your Rouenneries design, by the time I wanted to buy it it was mostly all gone ! :(
I will be buying this new Rouenneries range as soon as it is released ! second time around I am not missing out on this fabric range !! I just LOVE the sneek peek of it that you have shown us !!

Vicki said...

I'm so happy to hear Rouenneries will be released again! I missed most of them the first time around, so getting them will be my favorite 'second time around'!!! Thanks so much for the chance to win these fabrics and be the envy of my quilting friends.

Vicki said...

If I enter a second time, and win, maybe this will be my favorite 'second time around'???? Thanks!

livelover3 said...

I'm new to quilting so I missed the collection the first time around...so happy you are doing it again! They look so versatile! My second time story...hmmm...perfect timing...my 2nd son will be 2 on March 11, 2012!!!! I know how I'll be celebrating! wimk Thanks again for this chance! KERIHAG at YAHOO dot COM

Deborah said...

I remember when the first collection came out. Be still my heart! Second time around for me is coming back to quilting after a 6 year break in the 90's. Loving every minute of it!

Cathy said...

I love your fabric and French General. Thank you for the opportunity to own some of your beautiful fabric

Babsarella said...

Love your gorgeous fabrics and would love to have some to play with. My second time around story is my Husband. We dated in high school, then broke up (but stayed friends). After 8 years, we got back together and married 11 years after high school. We celebrate our 25th anniversary this Tuesday.

Anonymous said...

Great News! Tournesol is a beautiful design.
Second time around X-mas.(every year we have a theme: key lime C, Fine feathered C ) This was a brown paper X-mas. We were all to give re-gifted or recycled presents. Even the gift tags were collages of scraps. No-one was disappointed. This year will be a Woodland C. (I think French general C. would be great too!)

Kim said...

Ooooh absolutely yes please! I caved and sold the quilt I made with the first collection to a persistent buyer. Missed it the second I shipped it! thanks for the chance!

Cristina said...

What great idea, to release this amazing collection... It will be difficult to wait until March.
My second time ? There's no doubt: sewing; I hated it when I was younger and my mother forced me to do it... now, I can't live whithout it.

Candace said...

I'm so excited to see this line again! I had so much fun with it the first time (as I do with anything French General puts out :) ).

My second time around -- when I gave up machine quilting completely and threw myself completely into hand-quilting again. I have never been happier.

Deb said...

This has to be my most favorite line of all time. I guess my favorite second time around story would be meeting my best friend and then being separated for years and years losing track of each other through various circumstances. Then one day in a store we ran into each other and have our friendship again - the second time around!!

suz said...

I'm so excited you are releasing this collection again! This is definitely my all-time favorite fabric line in a very long time. I recently bought two large comfy chairs in FG colors, but I don't want to do a lot of cleaning so for day-to-day use I bought yards of several fabrics in FR reds, cut long strips and pieced two sections. One goes over the back, across the seat and down the front of the chair. The other goes over the arms (with a section of muslin that goes under the cushion). They can easily be washed, look lovely and give the same feeling as the original fabric on the chairs. I also have precuts and yardage on my fabric shelf. One never knows when one needs a little FR in a project! By the way, this fabric line confirmed what I knew in my heart of hearts - I love RED. Shortly after the line came out I bought a new car - a red one! Shocked the heck out of my family!

Denise said...

Oh my gosh! I can't tell you how excited I was to read this post. I have one jelly roll and some yardage of rouenneries and have been searching everywhere for a layer cake or charm pack to turn this into the gorgeous quilt that is in my head. I would love to receive one of your gifts! And my second marriage? Could not imagine a better life. I am truly blessed.

Kari said...

Aside from exes and bad movies, aren't many things better the second time around? This collection looks like a wonderful expansion of the first one.

pbach1 said...

love the collection! favourite 2nd time around story? adopting 2 bichon frise canines after my first died before she reached 7 months. heartbreaking to lose my beloved georgia's dewdrop, but rupert's showbiz and beulah have helped heal the tear in my heart. the two also helped me become involved in canine rescue.

Joan G said...

Rouenneries-my favorite collection in years...had a hard time locating the collection but with the help of my husband I opened up a lovely package on Christmas morning and there it was in all its glory! And that leads me to the second time around story. My husband and I married in my church in 1984. He is of Greek descent and we married again in the Greek church the day before our 1st anniversary. I guess the second time was the charm because we celebrated our 27th and 26th anniversaries this year! Thanks for the opportunity to receive this fabric.

Kaari, I just love your Rouenneries fabric! My second time around has to be starting completely from scratch after losing everything in my house fire! It has been an interesting journey! Thanks so much for all you are and all you do!

Janelle said...

I'm pregnant with my second child and although I was sick a little with this one I am trying to enjoy it more. I have less nervousness than I did with my first so that helps! I stocked up on the first Rouenneries, as with a lot of the French General lines, but am very excited to see the new prints!

Mary said...

Second time around is great because we get fabrics we wish we hadn't missed and fabrics we should have gotten more of. I can't (don't want to) wait till March so really hope I win!
(Another) Mary

Jen said...

Yes! Although all I can think of right now is my second child and how quickly his baby days are moving....the first time was sweet, and the second is bittersweet...

Cyndy said...

Hi Kaari!

Such a beautiful collection! You are amazing. Second time around: I am teaching my granddaughter to crochet just like my grandmother taught me and picking up the hook again is filled with the same enthusiasm as the first time.

James-Linda said...

ALWAYS LOVED ROUENNERIES+SO PLEASED THAT IT IS NEWLY RELEASED AGAIN!SEWING+QUILTING WITH ROUENNERIES A SECOND TIME AROUND-THAT'S A GOOD THING!
THANKS FOR SHARING!

kathy said...

How exciting! I love your fabrics and was just reading my French General Home Sewn book!
This is my second time around with quilting after a 25 year break and I'm loving it even more than the first time.

Bowbailey said...

I am so excited this Rouenneries fabric will be back out for a 2nd time along with a few extra pieces. No wonder I never finished a quilt I was working on, I was waiting for this new fabric I didn't even know about! Maybe that's my 2nd time around store.

HK said...

I'm glad you're willing to bring something back! Since I missed Rouenneries Un, I look forward to a second chance with Deux!

HK said...

I'm so glad you're bringing this beautiful fabric line back. Since I missed out on Rouenneries Un, I look forward to having a second chance with Deux!

I am heartened to see Funky Kim write that her second time around in marriage has been so wonderful. I hope I get that kind of second chance too. :-)

Copper said...

I am so glad the collection is mostly reds - my favorite decorating color!

Second time story - well, after 20+ years of absence, I went back to school and will be finishing my bachelors degree in April. FINALLY! It's given me an appreciation for second chances and I think that's why I now rescue unwanted cats (we have three rescues) and give furniture a second chance at life in a new and loving home.

Thanks for bringing back these beautiful fabrics! Double the pleasure, just like my twin girls! Diane dianemrose@comcast.net

Carol said...

I'm looking forward to Rouenneries again and I still have some of the first line. As for a second time around story, I really don't have one - unless you count my second son. Does that make my fifth son a fifth time around story? He certainly doesn't think so - he says we finally got it right and stopped!

carolc said...

How fun it would be to have a new project to work on! I absolutely love all of these fabrics.

Dee said...

How exciting that you're making a part 2 to this gorgeous fabric! I can't wait to see it.

Linda said...

This is so awesome!!! I hadn't been quilting long enough to get my hands on the first batch so this is super exciting for me! My second time around is a revolving story at our house because of our twin daughters. One is always is the guinea pig and then if it doesn't work, we try something different on the other one. They take turns being the guinea pig! Lol!

Anonymous said...

Loved the first go around--am sure the second go around will be equally as good. I told "everyone" about this fabric and finally got the local quilt stores to carry the line

Penny said...

Thank you, the first time I could not save enough before it disappeared, especially 'Paris In the Fall', so here's hoping I can the second time. First time learning to quilt I had a bad, bad teacher, so tried a second time in another town but had a bad teacher, so I am actually a third time gal and taught myself from books, DVD's and youtube. Hope that counts.

kim said...

Wow, lovely collection!!
Second time around: after not sewing for 10+years, I just started again and am LOVING it!!

:)

Abby said...

I loved this line the first time around, so excited for the 2nd one!!! My son Sam, I often say would have been my only son had he'd come first. He's wild and crazy but is the best second I could ask for!

Ned's Place said...

I loved Rouenneries so much I've only got a charm pack and scraps left so I'm so looking forward to Rouenneries Deux.
Second time around story is finding a pre-loved copy of French General Home Sewn book and enjoying the projects.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I'm still hoarding a few miscellaneous pieces of Rouenneries because I came in late with my love of it! And for the second time around, can I say marriage? It's been almost twenty-one years this time and it doesn't get any better. marykolb at charter dot net
So happy to see Roenneries is coming around again.

Anonymous said...

Deliciousness again! Thank you!!! Can't wait to see in stores. I love the last quilt I made with your fabrics found in Oregon! Lis

Cathy C said...

I just have a few pieces left of the original. I would love to have some of the new release. My second time around is returning to teaching high school math after 30 years of raising kids and caring for in-laws. I love it! Kids haven't changed but what they have to face in school and out certainly has.

Jonelle said...

Wow, I'm so excited. I love this group.

Falling in love the second time around.

More Rouenneries! How exciting! Looking forward to a second time around with more quilts, pillows, and closet accessories!

mabel said...

Wonderful news!!! My favorite line of fabric, now being able to use it the second time around!

Juels said...

I love love love your fabrics! My gavorite second time around was when I picked up quilting again after a 2 year break due to surgery. It seems like I am much better at pieceing this time around! Thanks!

Crafty Mama said...

I am so glad you are releasing this collection again! I only managed to get 1 charm pack last time, so I'm thrilled to see this! ☺

Oh, fabulous, what a wonderful fabric line!

This Rouenneries collection looks amazing. Your website and blog are amazing too. My 2nd time round story is trying to finish my quilt for the 2nd time this century! i started it last century in 1977 and as i approach 50 I've been seriously trying to finish it.

I love these fabrics! I enjoyed visiting your lovely store and getting the chance to meet you when we visited our son in May, who recently moved to CA. I really enjoy reading your blog and I plan on visiting your store for a "2nd time around" when we visit our son again this spring!

I haven't yet cut into my Rouenneries I, but I've had a grand time sewing with Rural Jardin, and have plans for a second time around with those leftovers. It would be wonderful to have some Rouenneries II to add to the mix.

Such lovely fabrics! Second time around... hmmm can't think of one right now. :-)

Jan - Big Brown Dog Primitives said...

Such wonderful colors! So glad to have a chance at this collection. Second time around? How about falling in love with quilting again, after a 25 year pause? That would be me.

Helen said...

I'm currently working on a second time around project. It's a quilt I promised to one of my nephews. When I first started it I was new to quilting and inexperienced with a rotary cutter. Needless to say the blocks were not the correct size and didn't fit together. I have taken apart and sewn those blocks and now the quilt is almost done. Just in time for new Rouenneries!

nngirl said...

I've been working with your fabrics and I love them! Working on a fall skirt right now!

Sunflower Skies said...

It's great that the collection is being released again! My second time around...I'm going back to crocheting, which I used to do when I was younger! Thanks for the giveaway!

as my dad is no longer here

My second time 'round has to be learning to sew in home ec and with my Mom when I was 12. Then 20 some years later rediscovering sewing again after my mother willed me her sewing machine before she passed away. Wish she was here to help me and my daughter this time around though too! :-)

DarlingWendy said...

So in love! Bought the collection the first time around, but not enough to finish the whole project! This second time around I'll plan a bit better... and buy more!

Connecticut Chronichols said...

I'm so excited that you are releasing a second Rouenneries collection. I made kitchen valances from the first collection and I had enough left, with the addition of a charm pack to make a table topper.
Thanks for a fabulous giveaway.

JoAnne said...

I am looking forward to Rouenneries Deux as I missed the first Rouenneries. It will be great to see them when they are available.

Karen said...

I missed it the first time, so very excited there is a second time around.

Hhmm. . .things better the second time around? Oh, started doing a cross stitch version of the Lord's Supper back in 1997. Gave up on it and restarted last year. MUCH better.

Dora, the Quilter said...

Beautiful fabrics. I'd love to be able to make a prayer quilt with them and give it to a dear friend who always does so much for others.

Susan J. said...

I am so looking forward to Rouenneries Deux. The first line was simply stunning. For me, having a second child in the house was easier than the first. You gain so much confidence in your ability as a mother once you've lived through being a new parent. I anguished over so many decisions with my son, but when my daughter arrived, there was an ease and calmness to it all which made it easier to enjoy her as a baby. Thanks for the opportunity to win some fabulous fabric.

Kerri said...

I adore these fabrics and never had the chance to use any of the first line. I miss living in CA for the sole reason of not being able to frequent your shop anymore! :)
I suppose my second time around story would be a second surgery to try to fix a problem started several years ago. The first didn't work and I didn't have the ability to plan much or do my favorite thing (crafting). Now, I can live and plan and craft as much as I want, and for that, I'm truly thankful.
Thanks for hosting the give-away!

Deb Wire said...

I absolutely love those fabrics. It is always so special when something neat happens time after time. Not sure that I have something special enough to mention a second time.

ruth ann said...

My husband has had many years of poor health.
We have a new orthopedist and things are better now!!
Let's hear it for the second time around!!!

Deb said...

Love every fabric collection you've ever created, keep up the good work. For the second time around...has to be the birth of my granddaughter!

Lyn said...

Lovely fabric. I loved it the first time around too, and still have a little bit left. Second time around...I'm knitting my second largish knitting project--a shawl for my mother--and, the second time around, my knitting stitches have really improved!

Anonymous said...

I absolutely love the reds!!I am so glad you're doing it again :) Second time around is sometimes even more fun! As I found out when a family tragedy turned me into a mom again. At 2 months old my grandson became my child....never had a boy so this was new territory. Being a single mom of a baby boy at 45 is a scary thought but we made it and he starts high school this year. Second time around mom was even more fun than first time :) SWarren

DIANA said...

I love French General so much because even if i am italian i love french style a lot!!
Second time around....last year i won a book on the web,now i hope to win something again this year!!!
Second time around...having been a good mother for my son for 12 years..hoping to be more than good mother for him because now he's a teenager and i am not sure to know what's the better way to be mummy-mother to a teen in this problematic world just in these strange years..
have a lot of good days with your loved ones..ciao from Italy!!

Cathy said...

This is exciting news because I did not buy enough of it the first time around!

Gay said...

Oh how wonderful that the collection is coming again. I can not wait. Second time around is so much better sometimes. I used to sew the kids clothes, etc but getting the machine going for a quilt is SO much better.

Charmingdesigns said...

Oh how I would love to win. Moving back to So. Calif for the 2nd time.

packrat400 said...

Oh that collection will remind me of the last time I was actually IN France. Love love love.

'Carolyn' said...

I have enjoyed your fabric line! Very country, very European, very classy. I started quilting again after many years....

Kate said...

I love French General, so I'm thrilled to see you releasing Rouenneries Two! Quilting didn't take the first time I tried it (pre rotary cutters and rulers!), but the second time around was the charm, and I've been obsessed ever since! Thanks for this chance to win!

I love my Sunday afternoon nap. It's like my 2nd-chance to catch up on sleep! And I've lost a lot with school starting back up!

You'd think I'd have more time to sew--but it just seems I using the time to clean and do laundry and never catching up with either item!

Love the re-release of Rouenneries! Fantastic!

Kristine said...

I loved the first collection and can't wait to get my hands on this one!!

Bree said...

I LOVE Rouenneries!! So excited! I made my children's dedication outfits from it last time, and can't wait to plan some new projects.
My favorite second time around, hmm...I'm not much of a second time around kind of gal, but I do think bean soup tastes best as leftovers the next day!

Ruth B said...

I cherish my Rouenneries fabrics. I have been hoarding them for the perfect project. I would be thrilled to add to my supply!! My best 2nd time around story is getting married at 40. So much wiser and happier than I was when I married at 18.

Julie said...

Missed out on Rouenneries the first time, maybe this is my second chance to add some to my stash along with the other French General fabrics I have collected.

Hen House Studio said...

I am so excited you are releasing Rouenneries again!!! I got in on the collection at the end and would LOVE some more fabric. OOO and it's RED, my favorite color.

Sue-Anne said...

I can't wait for Rouenneries to be released again! The reds are to die for.

Best second time round would have to be having my second child, nothing can compare to that.

Honor said...

Fabrics are fan-tas-tic!
Second time around: Working again fulltime following a layoff and job search that lasted nearly a year. woot!

Elni Langeveld said...

Oh wow! I thought that Moda NEVER did a collection twice. This is really nice! Elni Langeveld, the Netherlands

Best second time around story is that you are bring back the Rouenneries collection. I didn't buy nearly enough of it the first time. I would love to win this giveaway and by the looks of things everyone is happy to have this collection repeated.

Maureen said...

I am so happy that you are doing Rouenneries again! I have a quilt just waiting for it! My second time around story, finding love after divorce! I was married to my high school sweetheart. All told, we were together for 25 years! It took a few years to get back "out there" and it took some really bad first dates, but finally I think I found someone that I am so happy to be with. My mother was right when she said,"Things happen for a reason."

Louisa said...

Oh lovely - the fabric makes me think of the holidays. Everything the 2nd time is always easier.

Mary said...

I always love your fabrics and can't wait to get more of this line when it comes out next year.
My second time story.. my oldest son is now a dad and I get to babysit. At fifteen months, she looks just like her daddy at that age, so it's the second time around with so much more fun!

Meadowland Rose said...

I am so excited about your new collection. My second time change is being part of an antiques co-op after closing my store 12 years ago because I had cancer. Life is better the second time around.

Beth said...

I love the idea of another collection of the gorgeous fabric. Since I didn't get any the first time perhaps I will be able to do it this time. My second time around concerns my re-entry into the world of quilting. I have gotten back into quilting in a big way after not even attempting it for the past 12 years! My stash gets bigger by the day. This fabric would be a great addition!

angela said...

I loved the first collection and am glad to hear it is coming around for the 2nd time.
My second time is my second marriage which has lasted for 29 years and counting.

angela said...

I loved the first line but I'm sure the second is even better.
My second is my second marriage which has lasted for 29 years and counting.

えり said...

I really love Rouenneries, so I'm very happy to hear you're releasing that collection again.
My second time story is I'm making quilts again. I started to collect my fabric stash again!

Suburban Stitcher said...

My favorite "2nd time around" story is about my husband. We broke up while we were dating, and he/we were definitly better the 2nd time around!

Lisa said...

Great news, I am looking forward to revisiting Rouenneries. It was gorgeous the first time, and I can't wait to play with "Deux". ~~Lisa

Dixie said...

Love your fabrics- they have the best feel to them! Glad to try and find some of them I missed the first time around - thanks for the entry!

Carrie Mc W said...

I always say I appreciate things more fully the second time around. Glad Rouenneries is coming around again! There is a quilt in there I didn't t get to make the first time! Maybe the cadet blues can be the next re-visit?

Vangie said...

This is one of my all time favorite collections. I can't wait to see the new prints you are adding.

Vicky said...

Please could you do a Rural Jardin Deux as well?!!

Pat Hammerstein said...

My whole patchwork quilting is a second time around pastime for me. The first time I tried it was when I first got married and decided to make a quilt by joining loads of hexagons out of scraps of dressmaking fabric. My neighbour saw what I was doing and just went “oh” in the tone of voice I felt meant it looked awful. That was enough to make me put it away and not try again for many years. When my daughter went travelling I discovered the Sampler Quilt Book and saw that I could make her a quilt using blocks which were relevant to places she was visiting. That sampler quilt kept me busy while she was away and I was so proud of it I have just kept going on many other projects since then, so it was second time lucky for me.

Barbara said...

I love, love, love the Rouenneries collection. I've been hoarding what I have because I want to find the perfect pattern for it. The reds in that line are so perfect. Thank you for a chance to win some.

gill said...

I love these colours!
Count me in please

Penne said...

Oh My is that the most wonderful news I have ever heard. Rouenneries is on of my most favorite collections of all time. I have two quilts from it and a few other home dec things.

I will be using it again when it come out. I love the whole line. Yeah!

The Inspired Stitcher said...

What a beautiful collection! My second time around would be the second time I visited France. It was on a textile study tour with 30 other like-minded women who love fabric and quilts. It was a dream come true from start to finish!

Connie Morgan said...

Could not be happier that you are releasing Rouenneries again! I absolutely love that fabric...and I didn't purchase enough of it the first time around to make all of the things I wanted...so I'm definately looking forward to March!

Luned said...

Ooh ooh ooh!!! Loved Rouenneries, possibly my all time favourite fabric... I say possibly because Rouenneries Deux may be. Second time round? Moving back to live in the town where I grew up.

Osagegypsy said...

Oh gosh, I love everything on this site!

I lived in France when I was child with my Air Force father and family. Everything was quite magical from the hard candy sold in real clamshells, to the snails on the garden wall. Second time around when I visited England and took the Chunnel to Paris for a day, about 30 years later! Still magical!

KayH said...

How very exciting to see Rouenneries is coming back with friends! I loved it the first time and will definitely be making a second quilt with it.

Your Rouenneries fabrics are SO beautiful. So, as you say, the second time around will be wonderful, too -- and maybe even more wonderful. As for better my second time around -- well, usually when I pick out some bad stitching and re-sew, it's better, the second time around.
Debbie R.

Amy said...

I can't wait!!
I completely missed the first collection... so here's to my first time around!

Anonymous said...

My daughter just got married (Sept4th). I have some of the designs from the first time. So "Happy" that I will be able to make a king size quilt for their second anniversay.

Jo said...

I loved rouenneries! Just wish I knew how to pronounce it. Rouenneries deus should be twice as great! My second time around adventure? Quilting - I did it in the '70s, gave it up for quite a while, then really jumped into it again ten years ago. It defines me now. Jo H.

The Queen Mum said...

Yet another beautiful and generous give away! My second time around story...going to college for a second round of education.

Margie said...

I LOVED the first Rouenneries (made two different quilts from it) and I can't wait for Rouenneries Deux. woohoo!

Libmousa said...

I love these colors and am so sad that I missed the first collection. I have done exhaustive internet searches with no luck. I will be buying early! My second time story...met my DH on a blind date which was HORRID but he showed up a few days later with flowers asking for a second try.

Esther said...

I searched so many times for a little bit of those fabrics and now they will be available again! Thanks!

Seams Sew Together said...

Fantastic!! I missed out the first time, but definitely won't miss out this time. Second time round story my gorgeous daughter Simone

Handmade by Rococo said...

Beautiful! So excited about this new / old collection!

My second time story: I've always dreamed of getting my pilots license and flying airplanes. When I was in college I was lucky enough to get to fly in a private plane and take a lesson. I was so scared, I could barely move and the licensed pilot had to take over. I was so upset with myself, but eventually I tried again and loved it so much. I am still working on getting my license, but I am so glad I tried again to achieve something that I love to do!

Sharon said...

love. love! these fabrics are calling my name! just beautiful. second time around....hmmmm, my husband (the farmer) is not one to "quit" on a garment too rapidly, so whenever his chambray shirts develop a worn place (hole) i pull out my needle and thread and give it a "second chance"...love to patch by hand, just love it, so i actually sometimes wish for a little hole! thanks for the chance...!

beadgirl said...

Ooh, I'd love another opportunity to get some of this fabric! My second time around story is my second career, which I have started this year. Second time around, the hours and stress levels are MUCH lower. And the pay. That's a lot lower too. :>

Julia Badenhope said...

Second time around- making a new place in the country- with big thick shrub and tree borders and developing a dye plant sub theme. My first time around garden was bought with my house in June, and I think I miss the garden most, yet- this garden is going to be really fun to develop. I love the historical connection to gardens and french pastoral culture/dye traditions in the motifs and colors in your fabrics. I am finishing a rouenneries quilt with your pattern for my niece. I have loved evry minute of it.

Jacky said...

What a wonderful colour palette. I hope I am not too late to go in the draw...those gorgeous reds would make such a special quilt.
I will definately keep an eye out for this re-run.

I didn't get Rouenneries the first time around. I would love to have this group. I like the addition of blue into the palette.

Sarah said...

Thrilled to see these awesome greys, reds and creamy tans coming back. Choosing to embark on my second "big girl" job was the best thing I ever did.

So so excited to hear that the beautiful Rouenneries will be released again!! My second time around story is this...if they are bringing the fabric out again maybe I will get brave and use the fabric I bought the first time around :o) So far I've been too afraid to use it! And, I messed up my first comment...had to delete it and make a second one hahaha!

Robin C said...

I love Rouenneries and this is so exciting. Can't wait until its out.

Everything you create is just "perfecto"

Anonymous said...

I absolutely love this fabric line so looking forward to the second release! My second time around is that I've picked up cross stitch again after several years of being away from it... so relaxing for me after a crazy day at work!

Linda said...

Thank goodness for the second time around in just about every aspect of my life. I am so glad you also offer this!

hiyacinth said...

This is such exciting news, but March is a long way away!!!! Worth the wait--the collection is beautiful. My second time story is moving back to San Antonio where my children were born, and now they are all grown up.

Gretchen said...

I am so excited about Rouenneries returning. I simply love and adore this fabric collection because of the wonderful grays and reds. My second time around story is returning to working at Starbucks as a second job after leaving 16 months ago. I enjoyed having more free (re: quilting) time but am also happy to be back at a job I love.

cocoquilts said...

Wonderful news! I loved Rouenneries and looking forward to seeing the new line! My second story is having my second son & daughter! Pure joy!

Anonymous said...

Great you are releasing Rouenneries again, i just love the colors. My second time story is that I started working again after a break from two years and I just love it. Makes the spare time even better. Marjan

The Junk-It Folk said...

Yay for redeux! Second chances are the best: my little pup got a second chance (twice!) Adopted once by me after someone abandoned him and then came through cancer treatment by a wonderful caring vet oncologist. Loving every (second) minute with him! Thanks for the give away!

I have become obsessed with everything French General! So happy Rouenneries is being released again. I can now use my coveted scraps knowing that I can collect again!

Hopeful Homemaker said...

Gasp! I'm so excited to hear this news. I still have some scraps from the first line that I've been hanging on to. Second time story, let's see... Ten years ago I planted some lavender in my yard and discovered how wonderful it is. Then we moved and I couldn't grow anything for 5 years. This summer I planted a lavender garden with several different kinds of lavender. Just this morning I cut the second harvest of the summer, and I am in heaven! I love it so much more!

Curtains In My Tree said...

I am living the second time around buy buying and finding vintage items to live with ,
I am in love with this line of your fabric made by Moda

I want all the Rouenneries . French General is my hearts desire

I love French General fabrics but especially Rounenneries. Would love to win some. As for second times around - I'm in the process of hoping I can have a "second-time around" with my guitar playing. I used to play the classical guitar but quit a few years ago because of arthritis and now I want to see if I can begin again. Will I remember what I learned before or will it be like completely starting over??? We'll see.
Thanks for the oppportunity to win some of your lovely fabric.

Edith Grace said...

I've just discovered French General fabrics after having a 'break' from patchwork and I'm totally in love with them, especially the gorgeous tones of Rouenneries. During my 'break' I re-married second time round and I'm blissfully happy.....I intend to make a special quilt with Rouenneries for our new home...thanks! edeharries@gmail.com

Pattie Crum said...

Rouenneries is my all time favorite. Can't wait for the new line.

Prof. S said...

Oh lovely -- it is such a wonderful line, and I can't wait to see take two! My second-time-around story is a love story...a wonderful second marriage :)

Christine said...

I'm so excited. Rouenneries is my favourite fabric range ever. I made two quilts and a bag from the original collection and have another cut our ready to sew. Looking forward to playing with Rouenneries all over again.

Love this line and I already have a project ready for this fabric.
