How to Make Mosaic Quilts with Pat Durbin
(Show 2103) Pat Durbin’s love of flora and fauna, combined with husband Gary’s photos, provide the perfect inspiration for her quilt work. Driven by the desire to streamline the mosaic quilt process, Pat shares her technique which includes adding detail and depth through the use of quilting and threadwork. Another way of approaching a project is to paint a design, using an enlarged stencil tracing of a photograph, before adding the details with quilting and free-motion thread work. Bailey the Schnauzer goes from photo to realism right before your eyes. Our trip in the California Redwoods continues with a tour by Ben Brown of the Clarke Historical Museum. Along with an extensive collection of baskets by Native American tribes in the Humboldt area, he shares the handmade 1865 quilt presented to President Ulysses S. Grant in honor of his time stationed at Fort Humboldt during the 1850’s. Sit back and enjoy this California slice of heaven.
