Stash Enhancement

Despite the relentless heat the postman delivered a fabric parcel today. Yes! Taking pictures of fabric is productive -  ahh yes?


 Rouenneries by French General for Moda

Inspired by old French reds and naturals, this  fabric collection for Moda by designer French General is a peek into the rural life the mid 18th century France.  The word Rouenneries has it origins from the woven cotton fabrics made in 18th century Rouen France.


My favorite!

Some of these were purchased online at Rossville Quilts and more at my local fabric store GJ's Discount Fabrics in Brunswick. These fabrics are way outside of comfort zone, but I was drawn to them, especially the turkey reds, and will challenge myself to hopefully do something interesting with them.

  21. I really can't wait to see what you do with it! I have to say that line isn't drawing me...I love the linen look, and I can totally see it in certain styles of decor, but I'm just not loving it.

    Watch, I'll decide I love it just about the time it completely sells out! :)

  23. That is one of my favorites in the new ranges also.
    And GJ's used to be the store I visited most regularly before I had 3 years of chronic fatigue and was no longer game to drive that far alone.
