Welsh festival-Day one

I went to the Welsh Festival last weekend. They had a quilt show of vintage quilts amongst other things. My heritage is Welsh and I love attending this festival. I will have to share my pics with you over a few days cause there was so much stuff to see.

Mary and I arrived in town just in time for the community cookout luncheon where homemade fried chicken, dutch oven potatoes, baked beans, rolls and brownies were on the menu. Not hardly low calorie but totally delicious. Then it was on to the quilt show where we first saw Welsh proverbs taped to the walls. I thought these two would be good reminders for me...



This is Mary and the tulip quilt.....


A scrappy log cabin tied with yarn...


A half square triangle quilt that was much loved and much worn....


Two quilts by the same maker using 30's prints on muslin...


More next week! Have a safe and fun holiday.

So fun seeing vintage quilts. I just love them! I love that sign too! Too funny.
What a fun post. I have been working on All Dolled Up for my daughters 9th birthday in 2 weeks. Grandma is going to quilt it (if I can get it done by tomorrow!) It's a darling quilt!
Take Care to you, and have a fun holiday.
Your friend up north!

Where is this festival? I've never heard of it. I'm Welsh and a quilter.
