August: Quilts by 'Ready Thready Sew' at the Tuam Arts Festival

The 3rd Annual Quilt Exhibition by the members of Tuam's quilt group, Ready Thready Sew, was held during Tuam Arts Festival 20th to 28th August 2010.
The group produced a riot of quilts large and small from pram quilts with coordinating soft toys to full bed size quilts and everything in-between.

Nora Brennan, a Western branch IPS member, entered a number of lovely quilts along with a really striking Cathedral Windows cushion in black with vivid silks in the 'windows. Nora bought the silks in Kathmandu and her inspiration was the multi coloured powders used by Hindus to paint their bodies and faces during the celebration to the God of Springtime. See the photos below for Nora's inspiration and resulting cushion.

The following photos are just a few of the many other quilts included in the exhibition.
