Finish It Up Friday ~ French General Granny Square

Another UFO is done! I’m quite pleased with how this turned out. It all began with a jelly roll of Le Marais by French General that I got on sale. Of course, that jelly roll wasn’t enough so I bought some FQs so I could make more blocks. Then I had to track down border fabric.

Here it is on my queen size bed.

I do all my continuous curve quilting freehand. It would look better if I used a curved template, but I’m always in too much of a hurry!

This is where I’m displaying it until I decide where it will live. I wish it was a bit bigger, but I made it as big as I could with the fabric I had. It hasn’t been washed yet, but it will shrink a few inches when I do. It currently measures about 85 inches square.

I’m finally learning how to fill a wide border with feathers.

Have a great day!

    What a nice finish – this sure is pretty on the bed, isn’t it? Your cc work looks very good – my one attempt was rather pathetic. I’m thinking a good shot at it with a template on a whole quilt will get it into my muscles better for freehanding.

    It is beautiful! I love the pops of the blue. ***Be very careful if you wash…I made a quilt with French General all red and cream fabrics and some of the red bled into the cream French general fabrics, so now some of the squares are pink. I was so bummed after all that hard work. .
