Here's what I did this weekend.  Finished this HST quilt made from two charm packs of Maison de Garance and Bella Moda Snow.

I really like this block.  It looks great both close up and from a distance.

This is not a great photo, but you can see that the back is more French General, either from Rouenneries or Rural Jardin.

Thanks to all who left a comment about their favourite old movie on my giveaway post.  Popular favourites included Gone With the Wind, Wizard of Oz, Arsenic and Old Lace.  I knew most of the ones that people listed, but there were a few that were unfamiliar to me that I want to check out.  Especially one with Myrna Loy and Cary Grant, two excellent comic actors.  The first winner chosen by the RNG was Cathy, who owns a fabric store.  (Not just any fabric store, but Wondrous Wovens, which provides excellent service, good prices and wide selection.  That's where I got my hoard of hard to find Marcia Derse fabrics. Also, Cathy sells all her yardage cut to order, including fat quarters, which is pretty uncommon, as far as I can tell.)  In light of her day job she generously declined the fabric pack, so I picked a second winner: Number 43 is Judith!  Judith and I obviously share a passion for Paul Newman in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.  Yay, Judith!  I'll pop those charms in the mail to you as soon as you send me your details!

Well, obviously I missed the deadline for the giveaway, but I would like to add one more name to your list of old movies. If you have a chance, watch "The Best Years of Our Lives" - made in 1946, I think - about 3 American soldiers as they return to civilian life post-WW II. By far the best older film I have ever seen.

Lesly, what a lovely quilt. You are a very prolific quilt maker and I wish I worked as fast as you do! The fabrics are so pretty. I love that line.

I love this quilt. Would you mind telling me what fabric you used for the back? The whole thing is gorgeous!

Havely, I don't know if you will see this reply to your comment. You are showing up as a no-reply blogger so I can't answer you directly. I don't recall the name of the particular print, but I'm pretty sure it came from the Rural Jardin line by French General.

Thanks so much Lesly. Much appreciated!
