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.

Valley Quiltmakers Guild (SF Valley day guild) is having Patt give her “Mixed
Media” workshop on Friday, September 13 at 9:00 am in Northridge. Enrollment can be done online through their website: valleyquiltmakersguild.com.
