Bozena Wojtaszek – Country – Architecture

French architecture as a theme could be really challenging – just like the landscapes, too much to choose from. But fortunately I found my old folder of pictures from Provence full of architectural details. So I went for this quiet Provencal alley with all the different stone works, doors and gate so inviting for a walk.

It is done entirely by machine, in limited neutral palette and intense quilting making all the different textures.

Detail views:


  1. I was immediately transported to the narrow winding streets where one never knows what lies around the next corner. Your use of different fabrics and textures is vey effective. Lovely!

  2. Paolo and I are fans and lovers of Provence country. It was our first holiday’s travel, and we never forgot this wonderful region and its fascinating villages. You have perfectly been able to represent the atmosphere of those little streets. The details of the stones, gates, railings and climbing plants are well realized. It all reminds me of good moments. I love it. Chapeau.
