Road trip to Wales 2009
Last September We took ourselves off on a road trip to Wales to see two exhibitions. One in Llanidloes at the Minerva Arts Centre. They have a different exhibitions each year. Some art quilts from textiles artist's, contemporary quilts, welsh quilts and last year were some American quilts. The American quilts always interest me from the fabric point of view. I love the blue quilt, you can see it has a bad water mark at in the top left hand corner. I know I should have taken notes on where they came from and if the makers name was known but didn't I will try to do better from now on if I am to write my blog.
I felt a little under pressure as it was a very hot day and I had taken Mery with me and had to leave her outside in the car with the windows slightly open. I don't like doing this on a hot day as dogs can soon become hydrated. It was literally a flying visit and we continued on our journey to Lampeter to visit the newly opened Jen Jones Welsh Quilt Centre which I will cover in my next post.
Till next time.
