Reconnecting and French Connection Sew Along

Hello!  I'm finally back and plan to be blogging more. 

My friend and fellow designer, Celine Perkins of Perkin Dry Goods and I reconnected at Quilt Market in May.  We decided to collaborate and came up with the French Connection sew along. 

The idea of the sew along is that we each designed a quilt center and gave the centers to the other designer to design the border.  We are starting with Celine's center and my border design.  We will be doing our second sew along starting in October and we'll be creating my center with Celine's border design.

We are both super excited to share our designs with you!  The first month is picking your fabrics and cutting. Click here to get the first week's instructions. 

Selecting the fabrics is one of my favorite parts of quilting.  My imagination runs wild with the possibilities!  I decided to use Joyeux Noel by French General for Moda Fabrics.  I'm a huge French General junkie and have A LOT of their fabrics.  So pretty! 



Next Wednesday we will start making the blocks but here is a sneak peak.



Make sure that you join our French Connection Facebook group! 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you join us!!
