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.
