It's a Butter Churn...

...and I really like it. This is the November project for LePetite...Butter Churn by This & That...I sure had fun doing this one. I used Maison de Garance by French General...and I have to tell you, I am in LOVE with the fabric. I also put some Park Avenue by 3 Sisters in for the blue...this seems to be a pattern for me...I'm using those lines of fabric in my Rosettes too. Just can't get enough of these fabrics!

Carol, I just love your Butter Churn! The colors look so rich. I really like that you mixed Park Avenue in too. Perfect! I'm just starting mine right now as I write this. Nothing like going down to the wire!

Kate said...

Wow, thats an amazing block.

Michele said...

It looks great Carol! I'm working on mine right now. I've go to go finish!

Randi said...

That is yummy!

I really like those colors, too. Haven't been shopping lately for fabric so I don't really know what's out there. STILL going through my stash from when I closed my shop 7 years ago!

I love how intricate it is. The colors are beautiful.

Carol said...

I love it too! Park Avenue matches well with Maison de Garance. I have a layer cake of Maison de Garance, don't know what I'll make with it yet. I love Park Avenue fabric, guess that's why I have so much of it. Good job on your Butter Churn quilt, mine is almost done.

Sharon said...

Gorgeous! Gotta get some of that fabric...wonderful choice for your quilt!

Cathi said...

That is an absolutely stunning block!!

Thelma said...

I love this block, and the little bit of blue you threw in, perfect! There's just a touch of blue in a couple of the floral prints of Maison de Garance, I was disappointed a few blue prints weren't added to that family. I wonder if it's too late to get some of that Park Avenue, those two families do play well together.

It's gorgeous! The French General fabric is so wonderful. I'm not sure a bad quilt could be made from it.

This is the second Butter Churn I have seen today. Another Schnibble. They make such nice smaller size quilts.

OOO, I really like it too.

Beth said...

What a stunning quilt. How do I get the pattern? Thank you for sharing

Cindy said...

I am LOVING the fabric choice you used, Carol.

I have purchased more than I care to share of the "Park Avenue" line. I think I have such a fondness for it because it reminds me of "Chocolat" they put out a couple years ago that I am hoarding. LOL

Happy Saturday to you dear Lady.

Perry said...

This is really cute. I would love to make a small one of these, wonder if I could keep from making it huge? lol
As usual you did a wonderful job.
