Date with a French project.

So busy with family stuff, phone doesn't stop ringing...I'm so keen to get started on a new I'm making a date with the General..
This afternoon and hopefully tomorrow I'll keep my date with the General and make a start on a gorgeous new quilt design I saw on you-tube...I can't seem to add link to it...
I bought this gorgeous fat quarter pack of fabrics a while back...such great quality, can't wait to play with them.....together with...
....This gorgeous layer cake of French Generals that a very dear friend Dana (waving to you)....gifted me with., 
Dana brought it back from the states, she went on a quilting trip/ tour to the states, even had free motion quilting lessons on a cruise ship in great would that's on my bucket list!....
This quilt that I've fallen in love with is called Tavern Blues Civil War Quilt... by Bonnie Blue Quilts
I can just see it in the General's reds and green fabrics...

Have a great day...make it a good one...♥
