Region 12 Exhibition


The reason for me being up in the valleys (see previous post) was to make a visit to Cynon Valley Museum which was putting on an exhibition of quilts made by members of Region 12 of The Quilters Guild of the British Isles.

Turkish Delight by Anne Lewis and Me!

There were many lovely quilts but I have chosen to feature here the ones that belong to friends who I know won't mind me featuring them.

Dim Siarad Cymru plus Liz Savages' Welsh Babe (I know you have given this another name Liz :)

Joy Morgan** Welsh Quilt
Sonia Fox Ginkgo

Belinda Bajai Moonlight
Pat's interpretation of Nash Point (a local landmark) is one of my favourites.


 This whole exhibition was the brain child of our recently retired chair woman Jackie Pugh. She has put in an amazing amount of hard work during her tenure and this was her farewell for a job well done. I owe her a personal debt of gratitude as she has been very encouraging to me over the years. If it wasn't for her booking me to give a my talk (even before I had even put one together!) I probably would never have done anything.
A huge THANK YOU Jackie.


**Joy has begun a Virtual Quilt Group over on her blog Joy of Quilting. Go take a look.

  4. Thanks Deb, for putting in the link to my blog. The exhibition was lovely we went last week. And thought the quilts work well with the museumn pieces. We should be proud of Region 12.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
