Moda Friendship Quilt Along and Giveaway




Hello and Welcome to the Quilt Along!

All month you can follow Moda fabric designers and receive a pattern for a 9" quilt block which will eventually make up a beautiful friendship quilt!  Today is our day, as well as Lynn from Kansas City Troubles and Kate Spain...be sure to pop over and see my friends too!
Once I start quilting, I will try to make the Moda Friendship Quilt...because I love the idea of having Sofia's friends sign the middle of the blocks and then using them to make up a keepsake quilt for her.
Lissa Alexander sent us all a selection of blocks to choose from and I chose one that reminded me of old French tiles...big surprise there!


 In fact, lately I have been dreaming of France and planning our next Chateau Getaway....it's something I do when I am looking for an excuse not to work...wait it is work - right!?  This summer, Amy Butler is joining us for two weeks at the chateau in the South of France, to inspire and teach us all about her sense of color!  If you would like to come along Summer 2014, please let us know - our waiting list has already begun!


Enough about France...back to the Quilt Along!

Using our new collection, La Belle Fleur, Jody helped me sew up our friendship block and then went a little crazy sewing up a few other fun ideas....  This new group of fabric is filled with the faded reds and pinks that were so often used in 19th century French prints, along with the warm blues and soft teals.






 Here's a fun project using up the scraps from your block...a Scrap Book that you can fill with all of your favorite bits and pieces from each collection.  I'm big on scraps - in fact, I am thinking of making a fabric scrapbook for each collection I have designed for Moda....just to keep history of our 15 different collections!    Sandy Gervais told me to start this years ago, and I failed to listen to her...so now I have to do some catch up work!




And this is our new quilt pattern, La Belle Fleur...using a Carpenter Wheel pattern...reinterpreted by French General,  this pattern has two colorways - something for everyone!

 



We're giving away a bunch of precuts to some lucky winners, so please leave us a comment about your favorite fabric collection from French General over the past five years.  Here's a list of the collections to jog your memory:

Rouenneries (and do you know how to pronounce it!?)
Rural Jardin
Lumiere de Noel
Petite Ecole
Maison de Garance
Pom Pom de Paris
Fa La La La
Panier de Fleurs
Rouenneries Deux
Petite Odile
Chateau Rouge
Esprit de Noel
La Belle Fleur
Josephine  (coming Fall 2013)
Le Bouquet Francais (coming Spring 2014)

Thanks for playing along and be sure to join our networking site of creative friends at www.the-art-of-craft.com - we would love to see what you are up to!


You can also follow us on instagram at frenchgeneral...for a daily peek into what inspires us!

And have you heard the BIG news....French General is now open Tuesday through Saturday from 12-5pm!   Come see us next time you are in the neighborhood....

Bonne Chance!

I made a twister quilt from rural jardin. It has a beautiful red border. A friend made made the same twister with a gray border. She gave hers to her church as a raffle quilt.

SoozeM said...

I loved Rural Jardin & sewed so many things with it. I always get comments as it goes perfectly with natural linen. Kym (kym@websitewise.com.au)

Donna said...

I think my favorite is still rouenneries the original. You can never repeat the feeling of a brand new, original never seen before fabric line and that's how I felt when rouenneries first came out. I made 2 wedding quilts that year with rouenneries.

Susan said...

My all-time favorite is Rouenneries. I love every quilt I've ever seen made from that fabric! Your block is great!

Mag said...

I love Maison de Garance

Hildy said...

Rural Jardin was one of your first collection that I bought!

My favourite line is Rouenneries!

sewcrafty8@gmail.com said...

I love Rouenneries and Maison de Garance, but then i love all things French - I am back learning French again; Merci pour la chance..

Heidee Hallam said...

I love all the reds of Chateau Rouge, and even though I have blue days, I keep coming back to the reds.

Rouenneries ... rwa-ne-ree? I'd like to know! :o)

Siobhán said...

I have hoarded/collected most of your fabric lines, but I think my all time favorite is the Pom Pom de Paris. Pink and yellow are two colors I'd normally not gravitate towards, but I love them in quilts--after the blues and reds, of course.

Thanks for the chance!

kathiquilts said...

Definitely Rouenneries! The 1st look at those wonderful warm reds and I was in love. Pronunciation-- not hard -- fun for the mouth and sweet to the ear!

sternenelfins said...

Oh... so many to choose from... I think my favorite is Fa La La La La fabric line especially the grey tone fabric with the rich creamy flowers. Although I do love the Chateau Rouge Soleil. Thank you for the excitement of the Friendship quilt along... this brightens the wintry blues of February. We are getting snow as I type...!

Cristina said...

My favorite is Rural Jardin, I absolutely love the blues in it and how they combine with the reds. I have a beautiful quilt in my bedroom made out of it and I never get tired of looking at all the fabrics and enjoying their details.

Brenda said...

It is really hard to pick which line I like the best. I have loved them all. If I have to pick one, I would go with Rouenneries Deux.

Linda said...

I am rather new to this consequently, Petite Odile and Chateau Rouge are the first French General fabric collections I have seen. I used fabrics from the collections to make fabric pockets that I decorated with counted cross stitch design. The fabric designs go extremely with my cross stitch designs and the fabric feels so very luxurious.

Maria2 said...

I love all your fabrics but Fa La La La is my favorite! Thanks for the give away.

Deb said...

I think I would have to go with Chateau Rogue! It's all beautiful but I do love the reds in this collection!

Angela Bacon said...

I think rural jardin is my favorite but I pretty much love everything in the French general line! And I think your block is my favourite one so far :) thank you!

BizyStitches said...

Love them all but I would pick Maison de Garance. THanks for the block and the giveaway.

Dee said...

Beautiful block! French General is a major favorite designer for me. Love you, and my fave is probably Rouenneries, so glad you came out with some of the oldies in addition to all the beautiful new ones. Excuse me while I go wipe the drool off my face:)

I love Pom Pom de Paris! But, they're all beautiful.

Sandra said...

Your choice is the best for the Friendship quiltalong. Thank you for the patterns and the scrapbook idea. My favorite would be Fa La La La. I guess it just depends on your mood. Thank you for the chance to become a lucky winner of those precuts.

I am very fond of the Chateau Rouge collection because of the reds. I wasn't so much a red person (blue was my go to) until I saw these reds. Now I can't get enough reds like these! Thanks for sharing.

My first love affair was Rural Jardin - moved on to Lumière de noel and lastly my love has been with Rouenneries. I love French General - the colors are always amazing. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity. Judy C in NC

My favorites are the wovens from Rouenneries and the Petite Ecole line. Thanks for a lovely giveaway and thanks to Moda for the QAL.

Me and My Stitches said...

What a beautiful block. Boy, choosing a favorite is nearly impossible - they are all so special. If I have to pick, I would say Rouenneries. I am coveting a charm pack of it!

Diane said...

Rouenneries still has my heart.

Patty F said...

I am not sure of the name if the line but I love a quilt I made with a fat eighth kit in a chevron--backed with Fig Tree Snuggle, it is great. I also am collecting (fabric and a block of time) to mak one with Rouenneries

Kathy H said...

I still think my favorite is the Rural Jardin but all your shades and colors are so beautiful. I love the scrap book idea, it would make a beautiful baby book too for a baby to look through at all those colors and prints.

marilyn holley-stupka said...

I love French General fabric and have many of them, I think somewhere in the 40s, but Rural Jardin Remains my favorite. Thanks for the give away and the ideas.

Rural Jardin and La Petite Ecole...truthfully, anything French General. I have made at least 2 quilts and numerous pillows from FG and love each one. Lisa in Texas

Lynn Dix said...

I'm new to Quilting and need look no further than La Belle Fleur. The reds and greens in your new pattern are wonderful. Thank you.

Teresa said...

Thank you for the block, I love the half circle concept. My favorite line is FA LA LA La

Debbie P said...

I have enjoyed all of the different fabric lines that you have designed! Some of my past favourites have been Lumiere de Noel & Maison de Garance along with Rouenneries Deux. I love how all the different lines have that sense of French whimsy - such lovely fabric and "sew" many projects that I must make or complete!! :)

Susie Johnson said...

Chateau Rouge for sure! I am redecorating my kitchen and trying to figure out how to get a quilt in there somehow!

Carrie P. said...

thanks for sharing the pattern. I love all your lines but I did like Fa la la.

Kristy said...

I liked seeing the whole list of your fabric lines...I have made quilts from 5 of the lines thus far, and I just bought La Belle Fleur for my next quilt. If I could only quilt faster, I could have used them all, because I do love them all. I would be thrilled with some more La Belle Fleur, so I could make some accessories to go with this current quilt. Thanks for your inspiration. soardkg@fuse.net

Missy Shay said...

I like pom pom de paris!
missysaprons@gmail.com

Stacey Larson said...

Your fabric line is one of my favorites. It is hard to pick just one. :( They are all so elegant. But in a warm way. So if I had to pick one- Chateau Rouge.

Barbara said...

Love the La Belle Fleur line! It's beautiful.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I've always love Rural Jardin--I have a bundle that I just can;t take apart because it's so pretty! Thanks for the gorgeous block!

Fa La La La is my most favorite fabric line of yours; however it wasn't an easy choice because I adore al of your fabric lines. Beautiful!!!

Kathryn said...

While all your fabrics are great, I love rouennieries.

Cindy P said...

My favorie collection is whichever one I'm using at the moment, but my favorite color in the whole world is French General "Red". Everyone knows exactly what I'm talking about when I use that term.

And what a wonderful block!

Wendy said...

my absolute favourite of all your lines was Rural Jardin. unfortunately, it came out just as I learnt to sew so I pretty much missed it! I did manage to get my hands on Petite Ecole and I love that line too.

Cindi P. said...

My favorite is Rural Jardin, maybe :) So many great ones to choose from it's a tough decision. Thanks for the chance to win.

Patti said...

Beautiful fabrics, and my favorite is Fa la la la. I made a wonderful quilt for a friend out of this line. Thanks for a chance.

Chateau Rouge for me. Ah, to be back in France. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration over the years!

Ani said...

You are TOO funni! Just choose one?! Very hard to do but if I must I'll say: Petite Odile, followed by a close 2nd of: Chateau Rouge -- I love all your fabrics patterns notions!! Thanks for the nice give-a-way and super block! Ani in NC

Joan said...

Of course they are all fabulous, but the first quilt I ever made was with Rouenneries, so it will always be my favourite one.

Anonymous said...

Very hard to choose because they are all so beautiful! Rural Jardin maybe. Love all those reds and all the French General that has been designed. Great Job with a lovely line of fabric. Would be so nice to win some of that fabric line.

Anonymous said...

I like the new La Belle Fleur. The Rural Jardin was great too. Trina

Duchess Lucy said...

I love them all! I own them all--can we say I'm just a bit obsessive about French General? But my very favorite is Maison de Garance for its rich warmth. Second favorite Lumiere de Noel--clean and beautiful! Dying for a sneak peek at the two new lines!

Janelle said...

I loved Rouenneries because of it's newness. Totally new idea for quilting fabric and I was excited! Maison de Garance was one of my favorites too though. Beautiful warm colors and great prints. Love them!
All your lines are inspiring!

Gina Martin said...

Rural Jardin has been my favorite...the colors and designs in that line are lovely and calming.

No question, Rouenneries was my favorite. No, maybe Rural Jardin... I just know I love all your collections!

Deborah said...

I went ga-ga over Rouenneries when I first saw it, but then I fell in love everytime a new line came out!! I love the reds!!! Keep up the good work. I can hardly wait to see the new lines. Thanks for the unique block!

Katherine said...

I love your new line La Belle Fleur. But they are all so lovely!

Connie Thomas said...

La Belle Fleur is my favorite. Your friendship block is gorgeous.

Cotton Blossom said...

Now that is a challenge. I love all thing French General. I have had Lumiere de Noel, Petit Odile. I have to say however Pom Pom de Paris must be a favorite because I am currently hoarding several different precuts. I cannot bring myself to use them. I just enjoy admiring them from afar.

Tinliz said...

La Belle Fleur is my favorite. Your friendship block is gorgeous.

Cindy said...

I absolutely adore Rouenneries! I've made a wallhanging, placemats, and a quilt with that line. Love the tile-inspired block you've posted. Thanks!

Connie said...

My favorite is Chateau Rouge! Thanks!

Terri said...

I would have to say that Rouenneries Deux is my favorite collection since it was the first one I "discovered" and I used it to make a quilted bag to carry to my quilting classes.

eclectic-el said...

I love them all but if I have to choose a favorite, it would be La Belle Fleur!! Thank you for the block!
Ellen

shelley said...

You are a gem to include the instructions for making the fabric swatch book! I saw this on the you tube video. Thank you! I have a collection of rural jardin still sitting pretty on a shelf. Have not been able to slice into it yet. All in time!

Terrie said...

oohhh favorites...I have sooo many :) LOVE your fabrics !!! la belle fleur is my current favorite cause I'm working with it at the moment but I am also a huge fan of chateau rouge and Petite Odile and I cannot even wait for Josephine :)

Linka said...

Pom Pom de Paris is my favorite. I love the pink and yellow prints together. Don't get me wrong though I love all the reds too but am partial to the pink and yellow. So cheerful.

Deb said...

All of your collections are beautiful. My favorite would be Maison de Garance.

Brenda said...

I do not think I have bought French General before but my best friend has a stack for a quilt. I love this new one, I will be looking for it!

Mary

Chris S said...

Panier de Fleurs is my favorite, but love them all!!

Tami said...

I love Pom Pom de Paris. I am loving this quilt along and seeing everyone's blocks.

Miss Jean said...

I have loved all your fabrics starting with Rouenneries.

Rebecca said...

So I confess that I was introduced to your designs only recently with Rouenneries. It has the perfect shades of red. Since I didn't know the other line, I googled. Perhaps not wise, because blue being my favorite color I loved Rual Jardin and now it is not readily available. Perhaps not such a bad thing since I already have more fabric and projects than I can get to in a year. =)

Anonymous said...

My favourite was the Rural Jardin collection. The lovely blues remind me of summer days in France.

~Kris~ said...

The original Rouenneries is still my favorite. And yes, I can pronounce it. Spelling it is another story! LOL

Wendy said...

I love them all, but I think my favorite has to be La Belle Fleur. Thanks for the chance to win!

caribousmom (at) gmail (dot) com

CathyK said...

My favorite was Chateau Rouge! Thank you so much for the chance at the giveaway!

Judy in Michigan said...

My favorite line was the first, Rounnieres (pronounced ruin air ?)I just love it and have bits of it in many projects as well as a quilt made from it. Love, love, love your sense of color.

Goody Family said...

Chateau Rouge!

suzanne said...

I'm going to say Chateau Rouge. Some of its fabrics were very useful to me in reproducing a vintage British quilt. I was very happy to find them! Keep putting out your designs!

Johanna said...

I love Chateau Rouge. I have a quilt kit that uses that line and it is beautiful! It will look even better when I sew it together too!

Quilting Penguin said...

I don't know that I can pick just one. I have bought at least a little of all your collections. Actually, I have bought A LOT of most of your collections. Love the new La Belle Fleur.

Mary Jean said...

My favorite is Rural Jardin. I made several projects with it and I am hoading some for the future and combining it with other collections.

Kathy Stewart said...

I love them all but would have to say Rouennieres is my favorite. Thank you!

Heather B said...

Pom Pom de Paris! LOVE!

Gloria said...

My favourite is Chateau Rouge - I have some yardage in my stash that I love. I must admit that I have liked them all, but the Chateau Rouge camehome with me.

Faithful Quilter:Elaine's Journey said...

Love your block and swatch book, thank you so much! It's difficult to pick a favorite collection as they are all wonderful but Chateau Rouge is at the top of my list! Thanks again!

Jenny W said...

I love Le Petite Ecole the best mostly because of the letters and vintage feel. Thanks for the chance! And thanks for the swatch book and block pattern too!

Marie Chat said...

I have loved your fabrics since the first line came out. Of course La Belle is my fave right now, but Pom Pom de Paris has a special place with all it's romance and toile! Love your block and thanks so much for your offer.

Kirsty Michaelis said...

This block will be my first time doing semi circle, wish me luck! and I really loved working with Rouenneries.

Carol Sc said...

It's hard to choose a "favorite" --- all of them have their own personality, but similar characteristics. I guess, my favorite, if I have to decide, is La Belle Fleur. Thank you for the chance.

susan said...

All are beautiful but if I have to choose one it would be La Belle Fleur. Thank you for the chance to win.

Pinspot said...

I think my favorite is Pom Pom De Paris because of the yellow. and also, the font on the packaging for Moda is adorable. I'm a sucker for a great font.

Beth Strand said...

La Belle Fleur, I just love all of them, though...it's so hard to choose! pbstrand@msn.com

Sandy D said...

I have a quilt Kit that is using Rural Jardin that i have to do.I just have a hard time to cut into these beautiful fabrics. I also have a few pieces of Rouenneries that I love.

DebrafromMD said...

My favorite French General Collection is always the latest one.

CJ said...

So hard to choose ONE but I will go with Chateau Rouge. :)

Lana Cadwallader said...

Hard to to pick a favorite--I love the all--but La Belle Fleur is one that draws me.

Deb said...

It would be hard to pick just one, I've purchased several from your list, but Pom Pom de Paris was slight different from your usual choices, so I think I'll go with that one!

I just love everything French General :) I am a bit of a hoarder of your fabric and recently bought another bundle of chateau rouge because I knew I was going to use up my bundle for my project! My goal is to have my bedroom done up in everything French General :)

Oh, what not to love about all your fabric! I purchased 'yardage' of Rouenneries and made the quilt from your pattern and added various items as a memento quilt. And fortunately I am still sewing with my stack of it. I also love Petite Ecole. Very hard not to like it all. And I love your block for this Quilt Along.

All are beautiful but if I have to choose one it would be La Belle Fleur. Thank you for the chance to win.

I especially love your Rural Jardin fabric line though all your fabric lines are very elegant and classy.

I love each one as it is released! I think Rural Jardin was the first one that caught my eye.

I have several favorites! I really like LaBelle Fleur, Chateau Rouge, and Lumiere de Noel. Don't have any right now but they are on my wish list. Thank you!

La Belle Fleur is just lovely.

My favorite is still Rouenneries, and no, I cannot pronounce it correctly. Your block is lovely.

Karen Dobbs said...

My favorite is Rouenneries and Rouenneries Deux, and I now also love La Belle Fleur. In fact, I just purchased some a few days ago. Beautiful! Thanks for your lovely designs!

There isn't one, I don't like, it is really a beautiful line.
My favorite is the petite Odile.

I love your Pom Pom De Paris collection! The pinks are so beautiful! I have it in a few charm packs but I'm saving them for a special quilt :)
