Actually not needed.

Just type "debuild" or "dpkg-buildpackage". It will apply the patches
the right way for you. Once it has done that once (even if it fails)
the .pc/ directory will contain the right path to the patches and series
file and subsequent quilt calls will work as expected.

If you want to do it by hand then

  QUILT_PATCHES=debian/patches quilt push

will do the same. You only need QUILT_PATCHES for the first quilt call.
