More Josephine for my Simon Quilt

Wonderfully wrapped bundles of Josephine by French General just received from the Loopy Ewe for my Simon quilt's stash. The little packages were almost too pretty to untie. Their prices are reasonable and their selection is great--highly recommended.

Simon - a quilt from Petra Prins

I have been gathering fabric, mostly Josephine by Moda's French General, to make a Simon quilt [1775-1800] as reproduced by Petra Prins in her lovely book, Promenade in a Dutch Garden.

Since the original quilt is only 62" x 76", I have added 2 rows of hour glass blocks to each side and top and bottom, to better fit my bed.
I first scanned the quilt diagram x2 and cut and taped in new rows and scanned and reprinted. I now have a model from which to begin my quilt.


New size.

BTW: the lovely pink, red and white stripe you see at the top of the box is what I will use for sashing borders.
