love old French quilts...



There is something about antique French quilts that I adore, maybe it is beacuse they always contain a hidden past. This particular beauty comes from a local chateau hence we know a little of the history.

She started her life in the late 1800's in a stunninng bedroom with large ornate fireplace and of course was sewn by hand as you can see from looking at the photo blow of the reverse side.



Such a stunning quilt as as called in France; boutis, she would look stunning in any bedroom.

  1. Oh I adore your precious quilt – love the traditional french patterned fabric.
    We have to appreciate anything hand stitched from so long ago and to be in such perfect condition, it was obviously treasured by the previous owner.

    Have a happy Sunday Leeann - last night we put our clocks forward 1 hour - now that means Summer is almost here!
