Blend the beauty of antique quilts with the simplicity of primitive stitchery and what do you get? The new French farmhouse! The French have a way of combining fabric prints, colors, and textures to create their signature country-farmhouse look. Now quilters can capture this old-fashioned, comfy quality in their quilts too.

Ten projects range from classic Nine Patch and medallion designs to quilts featuring tiny houses and stunning stars. As they sew along, quilters will learn how to get that perfectly aged look with simple patchwork, fusible applique, and easy embroidery.

Marie-Claude lives in the south of France on the French Riviera. She has been sewing since she was very young. After taking a trip to Amish Country in Ohio and Pennsylvania and meeting designer Judie Rothermel, Marie-Claude became intrigued with the country style. She enjoys embellishing her quilts with wool appliqué and embroidery, and she has combined these influences and techniques into her own French-country style. Marie-Claude writes a downloadable magazine available in French and English under the name of Les Secrets de Marie, and she has an online shop at lessecretsdemarie.com. You can also find her at fairs selling her designs, teaching, and organizing quilt camps in France and Belgium.
