Headford Quilts on the way to California!

A delegate from the Morgan Hill, California twinning committee visited Headford recently and made contact with Mogs McDonnell. The South Valley Quilt Association organises a major exhibition each year and they were hoping to show some quilts from their Irish twin-town, Headford. Mogs contacted the quilters who meet at her studio, "Bolg na Talun" to submit their work and 9 pieces were parcelled up and are now on their way to California. Here are some of those quilts.

"The Irish Chain" by Nuala McHugh

"Snail Mini Trail" by Mogs McDonnell

"Margarita" by Teresa Fahey
Maybe other towns/groups could look towards their twin-towns abroad for other possible quilting collaborations?
