2010 Exhibition - Unsung Heritage

Our second exhibition, showing more quilts from the Jen Jones Collection in a stunning display designed by Gwenllian Ashley, demonstrated further aspects within the wide and wondrous spectrum of Welsh quilting. We focused on “Paisley” and “Turkey Red”. Included were the rich textured paisley shawl quilts, paisley panel quilts, patchworks & wholecloths incorporating paisley and red.

Strategically placed was the magnificent “Tree of Life” painted in India before 1800 and quilted in Pembrokeshire in 1810. A feast for the eyes!
