Show 2103: Easy Mosaic Techniques and Adding Detail & Depth to Your Quilts

Featuring: Pat Durbin

Posts On: July 29, 2017

Trailer


TQS takes you on a trip to the majestic California Redwoods region to meet quilt artist Pat Durbin. Pat’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.

The show concludes 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.

Do you use the same 1" grid Pellon interfacing when you make mosaic quilts with the smaller squares? Do you just mark additional lines on the interfacing?

Yes, I use the 1" - I just imagine a dot in the middle of the square and use it as a 1/2" grid.

Thanks Pat for your email response to my comment. Is the book you mention in this video going to be available as an eBook anytime soon? That is the one I was looking at. Is it your latest book?
Regards
Kathryn

Pat I loved your show and feel inspired to try making a mini mosaic landscape. I would love to buy your books but because of space generally only buy digital (kindle) these days. Have you considered this option for your books? I would definitely buy some then.

Quoting Grandmere:
Pat overlapped the beige "sand" fabric by 1/4" covering the adjoining square. Does she trim this 1/4" off, or turns it under, or leaves it in permanently?

I leave I in permanently---i t prevents accidently seeing the batting underneath.
Make sense? Pat
