September Meeting of Quilter's By the Sea Guild

This isn't the greatest picture but this is a beach scene that will be part of a 7-piece commision that Pat Mattison has accepted!  She uses all sorts of fabrics and many are shiny silks so it is hard to really see all the wonderful detail because of the reflection.  She is one talented lady!!

There were quite a few quilts made to be donated to the local hospital neo-natal unit.  This and the next quilt were two of these.

Pat Sloan (Pat Sloan's Website) was our workshop leader and speaker at the guild meeting on Monday.  I didn't take the workshop as I had just gotten to NC.  It sounded like everyone had a great time and learned a lot even though it was not a complex technique.  She was certainly an excellent speaker and very entertaining!!  I could identify with a lot of what she said.

Thiese were the blocks that people made in class. As part of the class, Pat gave each participant the book containing the quilt for which this is the center.

This is Pat's sample quilt which shows the center block.  She has a wonderful color palette which I enjoyed a lot.

Pat designs a lot of applique quilts (for which she has published patterns) and this was one.

Another of Pat's quilts in which she uses a palette of fabrics from her designs for Moda.

This last quilt is actually a picture of one of her slides!!  I did like all the houses though!

I would highly recommend her as a speaker at any guild meeting.  She lives in Northern Virginia and has lectured all over the world.
