This is a reproduction sampler designed by Marie-Françoise of Trésors de Boîtes à Couture.  The parts are offered in a series on her blog.  I have no idea what the full sampler looks like, but I have loved her previous samplers and decided to take a leap of faith.  Besides, I liked the color palette in this one and wanted to stitch something just as charted because I am weary of choosing my own colors after Ann Dale and Quaker Floral Puzzle.  So far, I have changed only three colors from her list, and am thinking of changing a fourth (the brown in the border seems too dark compared to the others).

Pattern: Marquoir Elise

Designer:  Marie-Françoise

Fabric: 48ct Gander in Antique White
