Quilter Kay Begley – 13 Quilted Creations

January / February 2021

Quilter Kay Begley says, “Since my teenage years I have been a clothes sewer and a knitter and I came to quilting in the 1980s. Initially my quilts were composed of leftovers from clothes sewing projects. As the years went by and I went back to work, I was able to afford new fabrics and pattern books and I made several bed quilts based on traditional patterns. But there are only so many beds in your house…so enter picture quilts. The quilts to be shown range from 1997 to this lockdown year and show a progress from following patterns to making up my own designs. Of the 13 quilts on display, each has their own story and reason. I hope you will come and see them.”
