Deborah Dorward is Australian and lives close to Melbourne. She taught herself to sew at an incredibly young age.
Inspired by flora and fauna, Deborah’s book feautures deer, floral arrangements, wreaths, or pomegranates, using both appliqué and Broderie Perse. Deborah’s love of antique fabrics shines through with her playful use of tradition and color, meticulously thought out for each quilt. Her compositions are designed around some of our favorite classics like Baskets, Medallions, Dresden Plates, the Ohio Star, Whig Rose, and the Mariner’s Compass. To compliment a few of the 11 quilt projects, carefully detailed with full pattern instructions and photos, Deborah has added 3 delightful cushions to accessorize your home. She has included a technical chapter to help you with her go-to techniques – foundation and curved piecing, needle turn and reverse appliqué, hand piecing and quilting, and much more!
A simply beautiful book!
