Members of the Kenya Quilt Guild were invited by Garnet Smalley and Suzanne Agnew, the owners of Cotton-by-Post, then in Ailsa Craig (now in London), Ontario, Canada, to exhibit their quilts and participate in a week-long quilt festival there.  Called “The Quilts of East Africa,” the show was comprised of about 180 pieces, only some of which are shown in these galleries.  Click on a photo below to see each gallery.
