Come sit with me

Begonia Picotee Lace

“I love the beauty and warmth of quilted art.  Most of my works are inspired by the beauty of creation — landscapes and special people.  The familiar medium of fabric and thread are my tools.  I use them to build works of art that bridge the gap between fine art painting and traditional quilts.  My style of quilting is to “paint” with my thread during the quilting process.  I want to add details and enhance the picture with thread as I sew the layers together.  Although my techniques vary, my needle glides through the construction of all pieces.   

I started quilting in 1993, after a lifetime of sewing clothing.  In 2004 I moved on to art quilts and have loved doing “on the wall” quilts. Superior trilobal polyester such Nature Colors, Rainbows, and Magnifico are my favorite.  I love the sheen that they add to my work.  I often use Bottom Line in the bobbin.”

To see more of Pat’s incredible fiber art, check out her website or see them at the National Quilts Museum on display until July 11, 2017.
