La Petite Ecole version of Summer's Blush

Hello Everyone,

I was so happy when Colleen came into the shop Monday to show me her version of Summer's Blush that she made using French General fabric from the La Petite Ecole collection.  This quilt was incredibly classy!  All of the girls from the Folk Art Applique class gathered around and marveled at this exquisite quilt and Colleen's workmanship.

Colleen chose not to put any hexagon flowers in the setting triangles since it isn't a 'flowery' quilt.  She plans on showcasing a beautiful quilt design in those areas.

As a budding quilt designer, nothing, absolutely nothing, brings me more pleasure than seeing how someone can take one of my patterns and add their own personal touch, style and fabric selections.  Such fun!  Now I can't wait until Tuesday to see the rest of the quilts the girls created when we meet for our final session of Summer's Blush.

Have a wonderful rest of the week.

As always,



  1. What a marvelous use of that fabric line! You are just having a ball seeing all these versions of your quilt design, aren't you!

  2. Most definitely classy and gorgeous! I can just see this version draped over a 4 poster bed with white chiffon curtains blowing in the wind - tres French! What a great feeling it must be to see your designs in so may versions, Lynn!

  3. You should be vary proud because it's a beautiful quilt! Your design is the reason! I love how that FG fabric line looks. It looks very classy! Love it!

  4. Beautiful quilt. So nice to see the quilt in a different colorway. Very rewarding for you to see your pattern completed by one of your students.

  5. It's beautiful and lovely and calming.
