French General update . . .

Birds in The Air blocks . . .  well I resorted to cardboard templates, placing them against the sewn block; cut another triangle from the 4" square fabric left over, but when placed against the sewn block I would have to cut the block down too much - just such a waste of fabric. So tomorrow I am going into quilt store to see if I can buy just a few more strips of fabric and cut out the 6 7/8 squares - will be a little extra but worth it at the end of the day - hopefully they still have fabric!!

The FG range of fabrics truly are beautiful aren't they?  WOW, when I started sewing these triangles, I must admit what have I done, but I know the end result will be beautiful - I am also pedantic over matching the corners!

Hello Sunshine . . . weather here in Sydney was torrential overnight but just now the sun has finally popped out. We are going out to shovel up our driveway which has slipped out onto the walkway, check out the garden and enjoy some sun.

Thanks for coming by today - hope your day is wonderful!  Cheers, SuziQ

What you've done so far looks good. If the changes will bug you forever, buying a little more fabric is the best solution in the long run. Enjoy the sunshine.
