painting fabric Pat

 this is my  quilting friend Pat from Washington state that has taken my class several times , the  orchids, hibiscus, anthuriums, gingers, and will be back again this July.  in the hibiscus class Pat paints up a storm. she is very enthusiastic and driven and organized and makes beautiful quilts , some with the pieces she paints. we  just   might see the hibiscus  quilt  one this summer. i for one can hardly wait!

                                    below is some of her painting afternoon  2007.

so this morning i get a call and it's Pat getting excited about putting this quilt together from her painted pieces  and seeing plant forms and colors she had not noticed before in her fabric  and making me happy  that we paint. and together it is really fun. she was trying to describe what i call atmosphere and that is almost impossible to paint with words but cloth and paint ,YES.   congratulations Pat, i can hardly wait to see what you do with your fabric painted art once you get to designing, cutting and sewing and piecing and quilting!

ps
 this quilt went on to be born and win best machine  ribbon at quilt hawaii 2012!
