Find out how Charles-Edouard de Broin’s family history, education and travels lead him to become a quilt collector extraordinaire.
Nicknamed Little bit o’yarn by his siblings, Charles-Edouard’s exposure to patterns started at an early age with his parents who were gifted embroiders and upholsterers. His fascination with colors and designs continued as an adult but as a geophysical engineer and geologist. Charles-Edouard’s connection with patterns later became part of his everyday life as a quilt collector.
Bliss of a Quilter Digger is filled with more than 100 photos of resplendent pieces from his collection, in particular the Amish, Log Cabin and Crazy quilts, which are his true passion.
