Recently my eldest daughter and I went to the Welsh Quilt Centre at Lampeter to see the exhibition of wonderful Welsh quilts and many by Kaffe Fassett. All I can say is, it rekindled my passion for patchwork and quilting, but especially hand-quilted wholecloth quilts. The close-up of part of the design above made me want to reach for needle and material then and there!
This beautiful yellow quilt with its scalloped edge shows the typical Welsh layout of a large central motif, and scallops interspersed with coils and geometric echoes. Gorgeous.
And another with similar echo motifs.
The leaf pattern is on a part of an old lambswool-lined cream quilt I have. I love the infill.
Close up of the ivy leaf border and horse-chestnut leaf and scroll corner panel.
Another leaf close-up for you.
I think this was made by the same quilter.
Gorgeous in scarlet . . .
Lastly another sideways quilt, with a darker border, and totally different and unique quilting patterns.
If you are near Lampeter, DO visit the Exhibition. HERE is the link. I will do a post about the Kaffe Fassett quilts tomorrow.
