A Visit to the Welsh Quilt Centre and Calico Kate

Yesterday, I took my visitor Edinburgh textile artist Pat Archibald to the Welsh Quilt Centre in Lampeter.

This years exhibition is called Early to Bed and features some wonderful quilts from the past. There is also an exhibition of Sweater Quilts by Sandie Lush

wonderful textile pictures from Janet Bolton

and paintings by Valeriane Leblond, a French artist living in Wales.

The Welsh Quilt Centre is certainly well worth a visit this year.

And, of course, a visit to Lampeter would not be complete without a visit to Calico Kate, where you just can’t help but buy some fabric!

There was some lovely books by Janet Clare, and fabric that she has designed. The fabric is also available from Sue Bowers at the Patchwork House in Llantrisant. I managed to stop myself buying the fabric but did manage to buy some ombre fabric which has reflects the wonderful vibrant colours you see in India.
