Quilt Designer, Pattern Writer and Teacher, Symphony Musician, Alexander Technique Teacher and Quilting Fanatic which, of course, includes Stash Building
Little did Pat know, that after a Bachelors degree in Music, a Masters degree from The Juilliard School in New York, a professional certificate as an Alexander Technique Teacher, and a long career playing clarinet in symphony orchestras, she’d end up as a quilter. She sneaked into quilting after creating hand-marbled fabric for quilters then, seeing an art quilt in the store that sold her fabric, Pat knew that she was hooked for good.
Pat has been teaching, primarily in Winnipeg, (central Canada) as well as other cities in Canada, since 1998 and quilting since 1993. She has also taught online with Quilt University and is now teaching with the Academy of Quilting (www.academyofquilting.com). Pat’s designs and quilts have been featured in Ricky Tims’ book, “Kool Kaleidoscopes” (published by C&T), Sharon Pederson’s “Rose of Sharon” DVD and “Block Book” (published by Martingale and Company) as well as “Quilters’ Newsletter” and “Quiltmakers” magazines. Pat’s quilt, With Love and Peace won the Big Love Quilt challenge on The Quilt Show web site (www.thequiltshow.com). She has been featured in a four-page interview in the June/July 2015 issue of Quilters Newsletter.
Pat’s patterns are published by Compositions in Cloth. Due to the discontinuation of some of the fluids necessary for fabric marbling, Pat no longer makes marbled fabric. However, that has not stopped her from experimenting with other methods of colouring fabric with dyes, paint sticks, fabric markers, felt markers and anything else she can get her hands on
