BOM: Paris in the Fall

Bustling sidewalk cafes, smells of freshly baked croissants wafting from the local patisserie, hours spent wandering through the Louvre, a champagne lunch at the Eiffel tower……ahhhh, visions of that wonderful city! If you have visited Paris or have longingly wished to do so, maybe the Paris in the Fall Block of the Month project will also inspire you!




This block of the month is a 6 month program designed by Sherri K. Falls of This & That. Sherri’s patterns and instructions are clear, concise and easy to follow. And what better fabric collection to use for this incredible quilt than Moda’s Maison de Garance by French General. Experience the earthy tones of chocolate brown, rich tans and creams and regal reds that replicate vintage French textiles . 12 traditional blocks with unique variations are perfectly framed with pieced sashing which forms a secondary pattern.

Please join us for this extraordinary project beginning in November!
