Feeling French

Today's post is brought to you from beneath the Eiffel Tower, 
with a croissant and cafe au lait in hand!

Feeling our French theme? Great!
Then it's time to show you French Connection, by Ro Gregg. 

What led Ro along this French-inspired path? 

One word: Roosters.

Ro says:
Look at my kitchen; you'll see that I love roosters. I have a big, Tuscan-inspired kitchen with a huge ceramic rooster and hen. I decided to blend those two ideas together: that feeling of Provence. I have been to the south of France, and it's a mix of two worlds—from nature side, the rooster, and then mixing it with vintage paisley patterns. 

I interpreted vintage swatches, mixing the damask look and paisley with roosters, all in blues, yellows, and warm reds. 

(Here are close-ups of a few of our favorites!)

Looking for more inspiration? You can find a free pattern for this table runner by Pine Tree Country Quilts on our website.


  1. I just love Ro Gregg's fabric designs!! And French Country is a favorite design style of mine! How about a contest to win fat quarters of this collection??!!??
