From large quilts and tapestries to smaller hangings and table decorations, pincushions, and special treasure pouches, Christiane Vignal has designed 25 gorgeous boutis pieces. Materials and instructions are given for each piece, as well as a full pattern in the pull-out section.

Christiane Vignal has been passionate about Provençal quilting, or boutis, for around fifteen years. Her love grew from experiencing antique pieces, and she then sought to recreate some of the old patterns in her own work, eventually incorporating the themes in her own designs.
