Brouage

Every other year, there is an exhibition I would not miss! It is in Brouage, on the French Atlantic coast. In this exhibition you can see reproduction quilts, mainly hand-stitched and only hand-quilted.

Everytime, I am in complete admiration... I don't have the name of each quilter for each quilt but I will give you their names because they are truly talented quilters : Dominique Husson, Catherine Guy, Liesbeth Spaans-Prins, Simone Patouillard, Françoise Forichon, Colette Debrie, Isabelle Etienne Bugnot, Aline Joulin, Marie-Josèphe Véteau, Maryvonne Marmion, Manuela Ribière, Agnès Carretier, France Aubert, Colette Goix, Gabrielle Paquin, Anne-Marie Uguen, Renée Elie, Maryse Kesteloot et Michelle Sapierre, Josianne Bréhin, Yvonne Calvez, Odette David, Huguette Ricchiero, Liliane verger, Louise-Marie Stipon, Ghislaine Lucas, Anne-Marie Schmitt, Marie-Françoise Grégoire, Annick Tauzin, Marie-Paule et Anne-Hélène Nédélec, Ewa Guérin, Jocelyne Picot, Cécile Lacoste, Pénélope Roger.

Enjoy the photos :

















A few quilts are missing because I didn't have a good photography of them! Sorry about that.

Hope you have enjoyed the tour.

Until later,
