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.

Quilt Museum at Lampeter

I won't be able to go to this year's exhibition, it's just too far from Suffolk - a pity, as the exhibition looks great! This years show is Kaffe Fasset's quilts mixed with quilts from Jen's superb collection of Welsh quilts.
Kaffe's quilts have been hung from the ceiling - spectacular, while Welsh wholecloths line the walls....

You can see photos at Sue's blog "I Sew Quilts" link below:

and there is a short clip of the exhibition on You Tube here:

I was very interested to see that Jen has a Margaret Williams quilt on display - I did not know that she had one! Hers also has a date.....1913....the centre is similar to the one on my quilt, and one can identify other templates from her quilts shown in Quilt Treasures and Making Welsh Quilts.

Jen's Margaret Williams quilt....

and mine, in  a pale apple Margaret's style, but as she also taught quilting, it might be sewn by one of her students....


  1. Your quilt is lovely Pippa and it must be a trill to own such a beautiful one.
    Thanks for the link to my blog.

  2. This is really an impressive exhibition and a quite unusual combination. To me it shows clearly how timeless and up-to-date Welsh wholecloths are!
