At the time Chantal G suggested that this was made in a studio for purchase. Mine has no initials in the center, and she said it appears that this one was not bought. Usually when they were ordered, the center was finished with the appropriate initials. The boutis pictured in the book does have initials added. I have attempted to photograph my boutis next to the book - hope you can see !
I'm glad I saw this, it prompted me to get the boutis out again, and it truly is lovely ..... I never get tired of looking at them.
My weekend sewing will be making some boutis progress.
