French Countryside

5 comments » catalog, fabric, fun, gifty, patterns

The Chateau de Fleurs collection is an enchanting recreation of French sensitivity. Delicate toile, combined with soft florals in antique colors, takes me back to my studies of the Renaissance period. French Countryside is evocative of what I would consider French country design. You will find soft colors of nature with golds, reds as seen in flowers, and blues and greens like the fields and sky.

French Countryside will fully embrace this d├ęcor. I love the bit of toile popping out from the Rail Fence blocks found in the center of the quilt. It is quintessentially of the Provence; however, the blue and red checkerboard border is a very American country twist. Enjoy!

    I love how the different fabric keeps your interest in the quilt. You want to keep looking at it over and over again. For my sewing skills and patience I probably could not do this quilt, but it makes me admire it even more. It is beautiful.
