Over the weekend I found a book on Provencal Quilts and would love to try the technique called Boutis. Boutis consists of two layers of fabric which have been sewn together with a small running stitch and then stuffed with cotton yarn in different patterned areas. The antique quilts made with this technique are stunning - I can only begin to imagine all the time that went in to making them.

I would love to try boutis, too; that's one of many things being placed on hold at this point in my life! I gave a book about proven├žal quilts to my very artistic aunt, and wanted to keep it for myself!
You'll have to keep us up to date with your endeavors, if you do try it.

I would love to see your process and how the quilts come out if you end up giving them a go. They are so beautiful but look so difficult to make. All that detail!
