Beautiful artistic quilts on show at the Bibliothèque Fourney in Paris

Spain, the USA, Australia and Alaska.
50 of the world’s most beautiful quilts have been on tour all overthe world for quite some time now, under the name “Feel Free”.

On 20th January 2003 the exhibition will open at the Bibliothèque Fourney, the famous arts library in Paris.

The exhibition is sponsored by Husqvarna Viking, one of the well-known brands of the sewing machine manufacturer the VSM Group.

The “Feel Free” exhibition stemmed from an international quilt competition involving participants from 20 countries, and was first shown at the Palacio de Congresos in Barcelona, Spain, in April 2002.

Since then the quilts have been displayed and admired in a number of other countries, arousing a huge amount of interest.

At the Bibliothèque Fourney the quilts can be seen up until 22nd March 2003.

“The word ‘quilt’ conjures up images of patchworks, which is fair enough up to a point, but these are extremely modern and artistic patchworks. Seeing is believing!” So says Lill Nylén, PR officer for the VSM Group, adding that the “Feel Free” exhibition will continue touring round the world throughout 2003 and into 2004.
