Kaffe Fassett at the Welsh Quilt Centre

At the end of September I had the pleasure of making a return visit to the Welsh Quilt Centre in Lampeter. My objective? To check out the exhibition of Kaffe Fassett’s work currently on display there in preparation for our own retrospective exhibition of his work here at the museum next year. Welsh quilts from Jen Jones’ collection have been hung around the walls and Kaffe’s quilts have been suspended from the ceiling in the centre of the gallery. Here are just a few photographs that I took of this bright and colourful exhibition.

  1. So excited Kaffe Fassett exhibiting next year -I take it you’ll be including some of his fabulous quilts? I’m not able to get to his current show in Wales, so thrilled he’s coming to Bath. First came across his work 30 years ago in a textile show in Nottingham and have never forgotten it!

  3. In September, the Quilt and Textile Tour I co-led visited the Welsh Quilt Centre and saw this fabulous exhibit of both contemporary Kaffe and vintage Welsh quilts. Next spring our garden tour will be staying in Bath for several nights. On the “free” afternoon in Bath, I will definitely visit The American Museum to see the Keffe Fasset retrospective. Amazing to be able to enjoy both exhibits as I live near Seattle in the States. Our travellers this fall loved their visit to The American Museum.
