Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery


Posted on | September 12, 2010 | Comments Off on Animals.

The film”How To Make An American Quilt”, (1995),  led to a visit to Australia by Patty McCormick. She was the advisor for the quilts in the film. Patty conducted several workshops and I was able to attend one of them at Pakenham’s Sewing Connection. Patty displayed her quilts and gave talks on the making of the film and her involvement.

She also took classes and we made this animal quilt using paper piecing techniques. The quilt is based on a design by Margaret Rolfe.

Patty was extremely helpful and the sections came together easier than I expected.

It was certainly a bright and colourful quilt and the animals had a realistic appearance to them.

It was great fun to do these workshops.
