Sewing on the Edge

It's been a particularly busy week because it's half term at the moment.  So day time blog reading and posting, email sending, internet surfing and fabric browsing have come almost to a grinding halt.  All quilting and sewing related activities have been undertaken late into the evening, and the midnight oil has been burning rather too frequently.

But the good news is I have finally finished my French General quilt top.

I thought I would add cute little squares at the corners to tie in with the floral print inside the stars, and I think it was a good move as it breaks up what otherwise might be a rather plain border.

Next I have to decide on the fabric for the back, as the one I was originally going to use is far too dark.  But that will have to wait until another day, as I have had lots of orders on my website for my personalised cherry cupcake bunting,

and personalised pirate bunting.

I'll be back tomorrow to show you a little something I made for my husband for Valentines Day.  I'm going to leave it out for him to find in the morning, I hope he likes it!  Have you made anything this year for the man/woman in your life?

  1. I love your quilt top! I agree that the corner squares really add to the outer border. It sounds like you're super busy... good luck with all you have going on!

  2. the French General quilt top!! I agree that the corner squares are a great addition to the border!! Sounds like you will be busy filling orders for your sweet buntings :-)

  3. The French General is looking very handsome indeed! Lovely bunting.
