This charm pack stuff is addictive.
I might just be the last quilter in America to succumb to French General's "Rouenneries" line. When I first saw it, I said "Well, that's pretty, but I don't use red." However, when I was at the quilt shop Tuesday, I found the last two charm packs and the last bolt of red fabric, all marked down and thought "Let's see what I can do. I can always give it to someone."
A little time on EQ and I had a design. At first, the blocks were to be 12", but after assembling one, I changed my mind and reduced the size to 9". Just can't love large blocks, no matter how much I try! That of course meant assembling the subunit HSTs and four patches and trimming them all to size, a job I detest, but it surely makes for accurate piecing. And the top went together like a, ahem, charm.
So, without further ado I give you "Stars over Rouen".
