The inspiration for this quilt came from a picture of a nineteenth century French Aubusson carpet. Carrying within it the elements of classic beauty, this quilt is both delicate and dramatic. It exudes the graceful charm of a French garden and provides excitement with the tapestry of rich burgundies and blues. The balance, color, and scale of this piece are all in harmony, which gives to the work a strong and beautiful visual impact. In addition, the richly textured surface gleams with the skill of the old time master quilters.
