About Patti

Fabric designs are amazing. They are like paint, but with details. I sort of have a thing for repetitive design. My favorite part of making quilts is the selection of fabrics. Every city I have lived in...people compliment me on my fabric choices. I have taught classes on this aspect and won a number of awards for my quilts. It is my desire to come alongside quilters who are shy about fabric selection and help teach them to look at things differently so as to become more confident in their own choices.

And another one I finished…

The sunlight was shining through the blinds so you have to ignore that part of this very bright quilt.  Again, loved selecting the border fabrics.  Glad to get some of these quilts out of the way.

A recent quilt finished

Had tons of fun selecting fabric for this one.  It is from an old pattern of Karen Stone’s…and it took me a while to get back to it, but I really ended up liking it.

Humor…as therapy

Humor invigorates me.  I can’t imagine what possessed this man to dress up as a side of bacon.  Can you?  And we are proud of our clown costumes.  For shame.  Every time I laugh at photos such as this…I can … Continue reading

What people create

Crocheted stone covers.  Wow!  I think a quilt would be lovely if using this as inspiration…both the colors and the design possibilities.  Oh, to have the time to create one.  Sigh.  But who knows…maybe some day.
