This quilt is an Austrailian Federation Quilt pieced and quilted by Patricia Neff in the early 90’s.
The Austrailian Federation Quilt was designed to be made with the state of the art, at that time, Janome sewing machine. Each square and feature of the quilt allows the quilter to use the sewing machines innovative features and techniques.
This quilt is a great example of the “thread” of decoration that quilting has. It has many decorative and delicate details like lace, stitching, and layers.
