The Quilt Association fund raising project

Take inspiration from one of our heritage quilts and produce an A4 piece to be used in a fund raising effort at our summer exhibitions.

You don't have to be a quilter to take part, Welsh quilts can inspire in many ways - through colour, texture, quilting design or piecing pattern, and can be interpreted in any medium such as embroidery, lace, felt or paper making as well as patchwork and quilting.

Just let your imagination go.

Quilt Association trustee, Christine Cooper, has already started work on her pieces. The photos below show her work alongside the quilts which inspired them.


                                                 2005-1-A pale brown wholecloth


                                                 2002-17 bowtie quilt


                                               2001-8-E maroon & mustard wholecloth

Please send your completed piece to: The Quilt Association, The Minerva Arts Centre, High Street, Llanidloes, SY18 6BY with the following information:

  • name of maker
  • address
  • details or number of quilt used as inspiration
  • technique/materials used
  • any comments on the quilt, why you chose it, why you interpreted it as you did

Thank you!

And here are some of the pieces we have received so far:
