Moya Geraghty shows her work

Moya Geraghty was our guest speaker at the November meeting and she arrived with a wonderful selection of her work through the years. These quilts tell stories of everyday life captured creatively in fabric and stitch. Moya showed us quilts for Christmas, Valentines, Halloween, Patrick's Day, teenagers' bedrooms and babies. Her quilts range from traditional to contemporary. She makes quilts and wall-hangings with prints and plains, printed panels, denim, flannel, hand-dyed fabrics, etc. The variety of work was inspiring. She uses a wide variety of techniques and draws inspiration from a variety of sources. These are only a small selection of the quilts Moya showed us. If we master some more technology, we may be able to create a slideshow to show more of the work.....so watch this space! Thanks Moya for a fabulous visit to Galway and we look forward to seeing more of your work in the future!
