Hungarian Flower Quilts




In 2007 Hungarian master quilter, Gyongi Varadi lived in Galway for a year and taught us her method of paper piecing to make flowers. On her return to Hungary she set a challenge to all Irish and Hungarian quilters to submit flowers which were divided between the 2 guilds to make a quilt each. The 2 quilts were exhibited for the first time recently in Budapest and a number of Irish quilters travelled to see the exhibition. These quilts will be exhibited as part of the Western Branch Exhibition at the Galway City Museum in May 2010.
