« What drives me above all else is this fascination for a world I discovered late, as an adult, with zero influence from my education. » – Charles-Edouard de Broin
Learn about the incredible journey of Charles-Edouard de Broin, a passionate collector!
Raised in a family of gifted embroiderers and upholsterers, Charles-Edouard De Broin learned how to work a needle at a very young age. Thus the nickname “Little bit o’ yarn” given to him by his siblings. As an adult, Charles-Edouard worked as a geophysical engineer and geologist, exploring X-ray crystallography techniques. This first contact with networks and patterns would become, over time, integral to his life as a quilt collector.
You will find in this book over 100 sumptuous photos and among them Log Cabin and Crazy quilts. You won’t be disappointed – these are Charles-Edouard’s favorites!
