2009 Inaugural Exhibition

We opened the Welsh Quilt Centre in July 2009 with the inaugural exhibition featuring the bold geometric flannel patchworks. The reaction was overwhelming and heartening for us. These fabulous flannel artefacts are now internationally recognised and current research is exploring their importance in relation to, and influence upon, the acclaimed Pennsylvania Amish quilts.

This first exhibition, featuring quilts from the Jen Jones Collection, was designed by Gwenllian Ashley.
