Current Work - Anne Morrell Robinson - Big Interval, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

Anne’s style is taking traditional quilts and giving them her own personal touch. Many are based on nature, or tell stories. As a professional quilter who sells her work out of her studio, she tries to keep inventory that appeals to the general public but is above and beyond what they expect to see. Birds are a subject matter that appeal to many people and also appeals to Anne’s need to use shapes, colour, and textures from the natural world.

This quilt features the most colourful birds found all over the world and is done with satin stitched machine appliqué. The theme is continued with the traditional compass blocks and fabrics that have globes or maps.
