  1. Very nice photographs, most importantly remarkable traditional patchwork.
    While staring at the first picture, I let my view detect patterns through the light and dark colours of the squares.

  4. I love your quilt! It is absolutely beautiful. My family had an opportunity to live near Paris for a couple years while my husband was on a work assignment. I loved it and hope to return one day!
