French Collection stitchery quilt pattern

I have been working away steadily on my French Collection quilt. It has been quilted, (thanks Wilma) I just need to add the binding.

Each of our French Collection BOM customers, and those who have purchased the full set of French Collection stitcheries will soon receive free instructions for making this quilt.

Australian designer Robyn Allen-Waters designed the stitchery blocks to go with her hand-made and hand-painted buttons. However, she is not a quilter and did not design a quilt to incorporate all the pictures.

This is my design. The applique is optional, but I think this gives it a little bit more of a French feel.

We are expecting the colour pages from the printers any time now (they had a break over Christmas and New Year). The patterns will be posted to all our French Collection customers very soon.

Very limited stocks of kits in the fabrics pictured will be available from February 2nd 2009 until sold out. We imported this fabric especially for our quilt as it was not released in Australia, and are unable to purchase any more.
