Pat and Jenny are the doyennes of African quilting. Known for their use of bold, vibrant colors in quilts with a distinctive style, in Quilt the Beloved Country the sisters carry their love for South Africa onto the sewing table. Using predominantly applique, both hand and machine, they show a gallery of 19 quilts interspersed with photographs of the land, people, flora, and fauna that surround them and influence their designs. They then provide patterns for 13 quilt projects and a few dolls, showing the inspirational photograph with each project so quilters may take off on their own creative wings. Jenny and Pat make their home in Johannesburg, South Africa, and have taught internationally, including at the American Quilter's Society Quilt Show and Contest in Paducah, Kentucky. AQS was the publisher for their book, Quilt Africa, in 2004.

Sisters, Jenny and Pat were born and grew up in Johannesburg, being third generation South Africans. Neither can remember a time in their lives when they were not surrounded by fabric and were not engaged in some form of handwork, be it dressmaking or embroidery. Therefore, when South african women started doing patchwork during the 70s it seemed natural for them to become involved in the quilting process.
