Moms French General Christmas quilt

Merry Christmas one and all!

Now that presents have been opened I can share the other quilts that I made.

I will start with this quilt that I made for my mom... I chose the fabrics after visiting with her this summer. While sitting in her living room thinking 'hmm, what should I make for my mom'.... the French General reds and taupes came to mind so I started with a Layer Cake of this....

I love this pattern, I used it as an inspiration before on this quilt....

It is perfect for a layer cake... for this quilt I added some fabrics from a couple other French General lines to supplement the layer cake as well as stone kona cotton for the inside border as well as the binding. I used extra squares for the backing.

Sorry for the quality of the pictures, it was raining so I could not put it up on the fence or swing and I needed to get the quilt in the mail.


  1. Beautiful quilt, Diane! Merry Christmas!!

  2. Lovely quilt!!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

  3. I'm sure your Mom loved it!! I clicked on the link because I need a quick quilt for a spring gift. I remember seeing that pattern over on the Bake Shop, bookmarked it, but never made anything. I think I'll make sure i check it out again for my friend's quilt. I've always loved French General, too. I esp love the back! Great job!
