Quilt exchange

Fontenay Quilt in the style of Chevolleau


In June 2000, quilters from Fontenay-le-Comte presented the Village of Palatine with a remarkable quilt they had made, depicting sights of Fontenay:

  • the Église Notre-Dame
  • galleried porches
  • tiled roofs
  • the VendĂ©e
  • the Château de Terre-Neuve
  • open fields
  • the marshes of “La Venise Verte”
  • the forest of Mervent
  • and the sky in all kinds of weather

It looks like a painting of Fontenay artist Jean Chevolleau, although that was not the initial aim.
