I was able to finish blocks for 3 quilts while I was there. Here is the first one I put together when I returned home. I used the Thimbleblossoms pattern Red Velvet, and the stone fabrics from Fa La La and La Petit Ecole for the centers, a dark brown for the star points, and background fabrics from almost every French General collection.
I can't call this Red Velvet, so how about Chocolate Truffle? I still need to decide on an outer border, but I love how elegant and understated this quilt looks using a very limited color palette.
I almost never make the same pattern twice, but this one is an exception - it's super easy to make and a great retreat project (I made the first version while on retreat, too!)
