"Under the Bedclothes"
We layer up our quilts with piecing, batting, backing and quilting, but the last, not so obvious, layer is often the story. Sometimes we know exactly what the quilter was thinking, but other times it is helpful to know the story under the bedclothes. A little background on the quilter herself will often fill in some of the blanks.
This presentation will show my quilts in the context of my journey to quilting and give a brief explanation of my inspirations and ideas. I love to bring lots of my quilts for you to look at, too!
Pat Delaney began sewing when she was five years old by creating doll clothes. A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, she completed a rigorous program of study in fashion design, in addition to numerous courses in color theory and drawing. Currently, Pat focuses on creating quilts and teaching these skills to other quilters. Her quilts have been displayed in many regional, national, and international shows, and she has won numerous awards and recognition for her work from every major quilt organization in the United States.
Pat’s quilts have been shown on the Discovery Channel and published in the Boston Globe, Country Living Magazine, and the Brockton Enterprise. They have also appeared in Quilter, Quilt, Quilters’ Newsletter, American Patchwork and Quilting, and on the covers of American Quilter Magazine, AQS Catalog of Books, and Quilting Foundation Piecing. Her quilts have appeared in six editions of the Quilt Art Calendar.
