2019 Quilting the Valley Quilt Show Photos are updated weekly!
This title sounds pretty straightforward but Patt says she’s not that mentally tidy! Patt proclaims to be in constant battle between left and right brain, and says “that’s not all bad as it keeps a minute amount of order in an otherwise fiber scrappy lifestyle.” Patt says that’s a nice way of saying she’s messy.
Having begun her art path painting oils, then watercolors, Patt’s quilting art focuses largely on life images.. especially the simple ones she says… the ones with heartwarming or powerful messages. Most of Patt’s work includes a being with a heartbeat. She says: “It seems to give life to the work.”
This lecture includes slides and samples of Patt’s pathway into art quilting. Patt addresses the application of traditional art media into quilting, new materials developed for quilting, tips and examples of machine quilting techniques that support the message in the quilt top, and finally, some ways to finish and hang quilts intended for wall display.
Patt also says “I might tell a corny joke or two. It’s my disease!”
Can you believe this little quilt top is created using fabric, napkin and kleenex tissues, stamps ,stencils, marking pens and pencils. You will design your own whimsical version of what you chose to adhere to fabric. All will be beautiful. I will bring several types of napkins, tissues, and stamps for you to play with but I encourage you bring something you love too. You’ll chose items, lay them around on your fabric piece 'til you are ‘happy’, then adhere them to your art quilt top with my instruction.
