Decisions, Decisions

Madeline, Madeline..........

I am starting to wish that I had ordered the French General fabric. This is such a pretty pattern. So I have been trying to decide how to make this pattern. One little hint about using yardage for a charm pack pattern -

1/4 yard = 8 squares
1 fat quarter = 12 squares
1/2 yard = 24 squares
3/4 yard = 40 squares
1 yard = 56 squares

To be continued...................

The French General fabric would be lovely made up in that pattern. It is very nice fabric I agree to that.

Darlene said...

Great break down of the yardage and squares. You'll make a wonderful fabric decision. :-)

Carol said...

I'll be anxious to see what you settle on. It will be wonderful!

It's going to be fun to see which fabric line you choose.

Thanks for doing the math. I would have kept on just guessing how much I need. Jump in with some fabric you have...but I too have coveted the French General.

I love French General fabric too.....Of course I'm loving about everything i see these days.....I think I NEED some retail therapy, but it will have to way. Now to print out your hints....I need all I can get.

I just got this sweet little pattern too. Except I kinda cheated and ordered 2 of the Rouennaires charm packs to do it with! I'll check back to see what fabrics you chose :-D

Hey -- thanks for the tip on charms/yardage! That's great! I've been putting Madeline off myself, because I haven't figured out what fabric to use either! I can't wait to see what you pick--I may have to copy (LOL)!
