French General Table Topper

After I made the shop sample for The Vintage Owl, the owner told me to pick out some fabric for a trade- I got this gorgeous Moda French General layer cake and jelly roll! I searched Pinterest and all over the Intraweb, and decided to make a giant half-square triangle star. I did free motion wavy-line quilting and bound it using a faux piping trick I learned from Ricky Tims. I’ve taught a class on it too– it works up super quickly and easily! PS you can also make a small table topper using charm squares, or cut your own size!

I used layer cake squares and a jelly roll strip on the back just to make it more interesting.

And here’s a small one I made from charm squares. The blue floral print was from the Grandmother stash from the 80s! Looks like it was made specially for this fabric. image image

Here are projects from my classes. I always love seeing how different each one turns out!

AdornIt Shop Sample

 

 

We have a new quilt shop in the works in my home town of Silsbee, Texas! It’s called the Vintage Owl and it is going in one of our historic buildings downtown. I met the owner and told her I’d love to help keep her in business! I made this sample for her from a kit she’d gotten from AdornIt, and I just love it! I had just begun getting a bit more serious about my accuracy, so the half-square triangle border was quite a challenge! I really like the layout: the center part is just a plain piece that works as a canvas for the “pictures” of the owls. You could use anything  the same way.
