Fun Fabric Shopping for a Friend

A few weeks ago, I visited a quilt shop with my friend Kerry who had asked me to make her a purse. She picked out lovely fabric and I have finally had a chance to work with it. Today I'll just share a peek at the fabric, but soon I'll show you the finished product which I hope Kerry will like.

Rouenneries by French General for Moda fabricKerry is into reds right now, and there was a display of these Moda fabrics just inside the door. I've seen French General popping up everywhere lately, even on the face of Karen's clock!

Rouenneries by French General for Moda fabricThe floral with the red background is beautiful, but that paisley-like fabric underneath is just gorgeous!

Wiscasset by Minick & Simpson for Moda fabricTo go with the two French General fabrics, Kerry also picked out the red dot fabric from the Wiscasset line by Polly Minick and Lauri Simpson for Moda. The little beige swirly designs look like tiny paisley shapes, and each red dot actually has a star inside it.

So that is what I had to work with to make a custom purse for Kerry. Stay tuned to see how it turned out!

Also don't forget that the Good Eggs Giveaway event will be starting on Wednesday, March 24 where you will be able to sign up to win my Petite Point Flowers Spring Table Runner or a surprise Prize #2 which I will announce at the opening of the giveaway. There will also be about 30 other websites offering prizes in this fun Hoppin' Along the Bunny Trail event, so you won't want to miss it!

Happy Stitching!
