Visiting My Talented Friend, Pat

I am blessed to have many creative, talented friends who inspire me constantly. Today, I want you to meet one of them. Pat is an old friend and a member of my quilt group. I spent an afternoon with her recently and I wanted to share with you some of the things she has created, starting with her quilts. Many of you will recognize "A Tisket A Tasket". I love the colors she used and it is meticulously done.
Here is a small sampling of her beautiful quilts. I wish you could see more clearly the amazing machine quilting on her quilts. It is done by our friend, Darlene - she is a master!

Pat's applique is flawless. She also enjoys the warmer tones for her fabrics.
As soon as I say that, here is an exception. I love the colors on this one too.

The blue tones didn't photograph too well, nor the intricate quilting, but, trust me, it's a beauty!

Isn't this gorgeous! You can see the quilting a little better on this one as well. It's such a fun pattern I think.
I love this masterpiece she completed recently. It is very large and the applique is beautiful.
Here is Pat's immaculate work space. It is a med sized room, but everything is in it's place.

Her cheery wall hanging hangs in her sewing room.

This is another wall in her studio. It features some of her paintings. She is a very accomplished artist and an amazing gardener, among other things. In my next post, I will show you more! Please come back soon. I'm so glad you visited!  -Derrith

Pat's work is breathtaking! I like that she has glass on her desktops too in case things get messy :-) Derrith, you share your friends and their work in such a kind and loving way-- they are blessed to call you a friend!

WOW! Pat sure is fantastic quilter.
That tisket, a tasket quilt are the baskets you saw on my blog. Maybe Pat still has the pattern so that you could use the basket for your towels?
