Petasson Finished !

For a while I have been working on a new petasson.  On my last trip to France, I was able to purchase a very old, very damaged petasson.  When I got back I used the old one to reproduce the design, adding some changes here and there.  The center had to be re-interpreted because of the damage, it was very hard to see exactly how the original motif was drawn.  I have just finished it, here are a few pictures.  I am really pleased that I was able to save the pattern, since the original was simply beyond any kind of repair.  It has worn through in so many places. 
I am also in the process of binding a couple of quilts I finished recently, and will post those when they're done.  I am so pleased to be finishing a few things !!  I already have a list of the next projects, of course !

Ton pétassoun est magnifiquement réussi. Il est splendide. C'est encore une passionnée qui le dit.
A bientôt. Bonne soirée, bises de Villeneuve-lès-Avignon.

Merci Marie - je suis passionnee depuis ma decouverte du boutis il y a 6 annees et je sais que je vais toujours "boutisser". En plus j'avais beaucoup de chance d'apprendre de tres grandes boutisseuses !
