Thanks for visiting ! Please leave me comments, I love to read what you might think about the boutis (which is also known as "Broderie de Marseille"), please share with me what you have seen, what you love, how-tos, good museums to visit, pattern origins, and so on ..... you get the idea !
Not too long ago, I acquired another petasson. This one has a geometric overall design, and is rectangular with an embroidered edging. Although it is small, I did wonder if it was more of a small crib boutis than a petasson, since is it a little larger than is typical.
It is firmly stuffed and the stitching is even but not as fine as the piece as I last bought.
Central geometric design with roses (?) running around the outside.
The embroidered frill has been attached so it looks almost like a piping.
Otherwise I am making progress on my large vanne. Three more final borders to go, they are large and will be gorgeous when stuffed.
This is a blog where I want to share about one of my passions - the Boutis - which is an old and beautiful Provencal art of the needle. I also love applique quilts, and make them often - usually big ones that take a long time ! Otherwise I love travelling, especially to our 100 year old cottage on the Southern Wine Route in Germany.
