I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

"Unforgettable" Quilt Museum Lampeter 2016

The highlight of our trip was a chance to see the Quilt Museum in Lampeter. This year, the exhibition was titled "Unforgettable" and featured quilts from Jen Jones' collection and also that of Ron Simpson's.

Unforgettable is dedicated to Roger Clive-Powell, the highly celebrated Conservation Architect, who rescued  the Town Hall and turned it into the Welsh Quilt Centre. Roger sadly died in the autumn of 2015.

I am not putting titles to the photos below, in the hope that some of you may purchase the 2016 catalogue, at the following address:

If you email Jen and her team, they will gladly answer any questions you may have about price and postage costs to your country.


  1. Have no words for it, so beautiful, these quilts!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these photos, that would have been such an amazing & interesting place to visit.

  3. Which came first? American Amish quilts or Welsh quilts? They have the same geometric feel.

    1. Welsh quilts, apparently. Dorothy Oslers book suggests that Welsh Baptists, with their very strict religion, were found in much the same areas as some of the early Amish, and were able to share their quilting knowhow....

  4. These are SO beautiful--definitely unforgettable! Thank you for showing so many photos. I'm going to order the catalog right now.

  5. These are stunning, especially seen all together.
