Have a wonderful Christmas especially having your son with you, it's always special when our children are with us, no matter what age they are.  Hope you have reasonable weather too, keep safe.  Peace, joy and good health for 2017.

Good morning Geneevieve,

Although nothing very good about it today.  I thought of you immediately i heard the news, how pleased i was to hear non of your family were in Paris and escaped the horror.  What a terrible thing to have happened, just as thechristmas festivities are getting underway.  I really dont have an answer, but they must be stopped at all costs.

Stay safe, regards, marianne

Le monde est tanner d'attendre de telle pareille chose a travers le monde. Esperons que les chefs de pays puise savoir s'y prendre pour corriger ces dilemma..

Genevieve, thanks so much for the referral to the boutis website. I enjoy seeing a traditional technique surviving in a new century with a modern twist instead of dying out. The designs are amazing! Now that I understand a bit about the method, I will watch the videos even though they are in French.

One question before I start (hopefully this week) - Do you basically use a 100% cotton yarn for stuffing? That is the best I can tell we have available here in the U.S. If not, is there something I could order that works better? Where?

Prairie Quilter, a member of one of your QWU groups, mentioned I should check out your QWU page to see your boutis work. I wrote a QWU blog today on a book about Boutis I reviewed for CT (I am on staff as a quilt designer)... click here to see it.

Your boutis quilts are amazing! The effect of the raised designs is so beautiful! They must have taken a long time since I've read that the method is time intensive.

The Art of Boutis is very inspiring and fortunately offers several small projects. It does not clear enough instructions for the "stuffing". I found out from other online blogs it works to use %100 cotton yarn available here in the U.S. For larger areas I found some %100 cotton roving on Etsy.com (used for spinning so can be drawn out into long strands) but it is off-white compared to the yarn (see picture in my blog posting). I guess I could use off-white yarn and have a subtle hint of that color show through the batiste. Have you tried roving?

Anyway, your work is lovely. I will let you know when (if?) I get my project finished. Thanks for posting your work...quite impressive!

I am getting over "Sandy". I lost my car and was in the dark and cold  for weeks. But I am doing fine now. Thanks for the good thoughts. Have a Great Christmas!

I just came upon your post about Boutis, and thought I'd share with you that the group of Brant Broderers from our area went to France a couple of years ago and took a course on the art. They each made a little example which was on display at their show yesterday! It looks beautiful but very labour intensive, although I see you are into a lot of hand work to start with!

Thank you so much!  I love Jinny Beyer's fabrics a LOT!  There are a few other designers I like too....Peggy Toole is really awsome and so is Paula Nadelstern!

Your quilts are beautiful!  Very unique.  Have a wonderful day!

Thank you for sharing pictures of your work.  The pieces show so much dedication and patience.  Something for us all to learn and be inspired by.   I spent a summer in France many, many years ago, 1965!   I was seventeen.  Still have pangs of longing to go back someday.
