Hello, my name is Patrice. I live in Eastern Massachusetts. I learned to sew in the early 1970s on my mother’s Singer 301 sewing machine. I have been enjoying quilting since the early 1990s … not so long ago! I love to work with traditional patterns and reproductions fabrics, but also love the bright colors of modern prints and the beautiful jewel tones of batik fabrics. I have been inspired by my good friend Peggy Anne to create my own designs and have been writing my own patterns. You will find some of them for sale here in my blog and I also want to inspire you to create your own unique quilts … and stuff! My other interests include jewelry making, but I don’t find much time for that these days … too much fabric in my stash!
