I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

Jen Jones Quilt Museum Exhibition 2014 - "Early to Bed"

Today, I received my copy of the catalog for the 2014 quilt exhibition at Jen Jones' Quilt Museum in Lampeter. I was not able to see the exhibition this year, which has now closed - Wales is just too far from Suffolk - but this is a good record of the yearly exhibition. The exhibition was "Early to Bed - Make Do and Mend and Folk Art".

This year's show contained  quilts from Jen's own collection, plus some of Ron Simpson's and two other museum collections,  Brecknock and Ceredigion. If you are in Wales during March to November, these exhibitions are well worth going to see. Like previous exhibitions, this was professionally designed and staged by Gwenllian Ashley. The Lampeter  Old Town Hall is a lovely venue. And, with Calico Kate, there is a good quilt shop nearby!

I was very surprised to turn the page, and to see that my blog post of 31 March 2012, concerning military quilts and the painting of Thomas Woods, was quoted in its entirety. I had no idea!


  1. It was a super exhibition and the Quilt Museum is always worth the trek. Jen curates the exhibitions so beautifully

  2. I am thoroughly kicking myself for missing this year's exhibition, but it has been a busy year. Lampeter is only 20 miles from us too, so I have no excuse really.

  3. There's some pics of the exhibition on my blog from earlier in the month - - enjoy!
