This year's exhibit was of Kaffe Fassett's quilts - and very colourful they were too. They were hung from the ceiling, while Welsh wholecloths lined the walls.
Many of Kaffe's quilts are designed with traditional quilts in mind, but with his bright and bold fabrics.
They are very colourful....I enjoyed looking through the catalogue.
At the back are some thumbnails of the traditional Welsh quilts - just a small portion of each. Wholecloths are notoriously difficult to photograph.
This year's exhibition is now closed, but the theme for next year has already been announced. It is "Early to Bed" featuring very early Welsh quilts, including two of Ron Simpsons quilts. Janet Bolton's quilts will also feature.
Some of Jen's fantastic quilts...
Love the blue fabric in the border!! Hopefully I will get across next year.....its over six hours drive from here...
