Firstly the exiting news in my house is that I am a winner! A prize winner :) Judy sent me a lovely box of sewing goodies for guessing the closest weight of her new grandchild!
Second exciting news...the budgies laid eggs over Easter....so we will have babies of a different kind at our house in a few weeks!
Third exciting news...
French General flimsy finish...these are the centre blocks as I was sewing it together!
Clever trick from the author - make simple blocks in a large size, to form the border. I say this because I always stitch on plain borders, because I am too lazy to piece something. But when I was busy piecing the body of the quilt, I didn't think anything of making these easy star blocks.

from the back :)
Happy quilting Sue.
