Irish Patchwork – No. 2

Alex Meldrum from Co. Antrim introduces the range of traditional Irish patchworks as seen in collections from the Crafts Council of Ireland in Kilkenny. The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum collection is also shown. The film demonstrates the techniques, materials and methods used in the making of several popular types, including a superb Mosaic patchwork by Lorna Johnson in Co. Wicklow, and a Log Cabin design quilt by Avril Halliday in Co. Down, and others sewn by thrifty women from used flour sacks and old overcoats.     Made in 1981.
