Pat’s quilts at the airport

Majestic Redwoods –

So happy to have my quilt sharing the wall with Claudia Lima’s painting.

67″ x 65″

This piece is large and is created using hundreds of fabric squares and the redwoods are mostly strips.  I hope the feel reminds you of standing in the forest and enjoying the trees.

Machine quilted.

Begonia – All Dressed Up

34″ wide x 31″ tall

Painted image with lots of stitching to enhance the flowers.

Spring Exhibit

“All Dressed Up” is on display from March 20 through April 19 at Redwood Arts Assn. 603 F St, Eureka Ca. during the Spring Exhibit.

This is a painted image, greatly enhanced with thread and then quilted to add a sculptured effect.  (Fun project)

Great to see the judging is complete 4/9/24  Best in Show!

Getting Started


I was just working on a new project with little pieces – building tiny things with fabric.  It occurred to me as I was working that I’ve been building tiny things since the early days of making doll clothes.  Seems to be a theme in the things I do for fun.

December fun

I’ve enjoyed having quilts in several places this fall.

Two quilts at the Redwood Regional Airport – in McKinleyville, Ca; several at the Clarke Museum in Eureka, Ca; and I just brought home one from the Redwood Art Association Exhibit, in Eureka, CA.  It won 3rd place.  Always nice to have positive feedback.

“Avenue of the Giants”


Things are good here, fall leaves everywhere and rain – which is always a blessing.

Completed the Sequoia Trails quilt.  It was nice to do something kind of different.  I also was glad to get a ribbon at Pacific International on the Old Round Barn.

Looking forward to the Holiday celebrations…won’t be long now.

Quilt Show

October 13 – 16 at Santa Clara Convention Center, Ca.  These two will be part of the show.

Golden Memories, and Old Round Barn.

Headed to Paducah

Crescent View is on it’s way to Paducah for the show in late April.

In 2020 it was also juried into this show, but the show was cancelled – so here it goes again in 2022.

It’s nice to have the big quilt shows meeting again “in person”.  So far I haven’t attended, but maybe soon.

Color My World – done!

Color My World, pattern by Wendy Williams.

The Quilt posts a pattern each year, month by month.  I thought it might be fun to do this Block of the Month project.  Each month I would get a new section to work on, then put it away and work on other things I enjoyed the process.

Once it was done I decided to have a friend, long arm quilter, Susan from Top to Bottom Stitches quilt it for me.

Finish the UFOs

I’ve been working on those UFOs in my sewing room.  This one dates back at least 10 years.  Not my normal style…30s reproduction prints.

Below you will see the method I used to create the wedges and assemble them.  I’m working on quilting it now.
