Katherine Guerrier Retrospective Quilt Exhibition, Wales, September 2014

'Stars and Scraps' Quilt by Katherine Guerrier 
All summer I have been trying to get to an exhibition of quilts 'Adventures in Colour' by Katherine Guerrier, author of one of my favourite quilting books 'Scrap Quilt Sensation'.  Today was the day.

As you will see from the photos, her work is all about colour.  Katherine has done workshops at my local quilt shop, Busy Bees Patchwork in Newport, Wales, and I saw several interpretations of her work on display in one of their exhibitions a few years ago. (BTW - Good news! Busy Bees Patchwork is up and running again, just around the corner from their old shop near Tredegar House (National Trust), they also have an online shop).

I took a close up of one of my favourite quilts, 'Strictly Triangles' because it really shows the mix of scraps she includes in her scrap quilts.  I love this quilt.  It is made up from scrappy half square triangles.

The exhibition is at the Rhondda Heritage Park (CF37 2NP) in Wales, and will be on until September 19th, 2014.  The exhibition is displayed upstairs next to the caf√©, and entry is FREE. If you can't make it to the exhibition her book is great inspiration.
