Pat Pauly 

Pat is a contemporary fiber artist, known for her improvisational technique.  Her lecture,“ A Walk on the Wild Side”  is an irreverent look at her own work and career, with its lucky beginnings and twists and turns.  Pat presents more than 400 images in an hour; you will never think of the word “quilt” in the same way again.  She uses bold color and unusual juxtapositions of printed and painted fabric.   She is recognized nationally and internationally and her art quilts have been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions.  Visit PatPauly.com to see more of her works.

Workshop –  Oct 29.   Join Pat to make this modern version of a Bow Tie.  Discover the ease of freehand rotary cutting, learn how to add that skinny line, and use color and pattern to compose with a simple Bow Tie shape.  Pat’s workshops focus on design and technique, as well as when to apply the rules, and when to toss them out.  Methods for quilting and finishing are discussed. By the end of class you will see how a simple shape can make a stunning quilt.  Golden Quilt Company 1108 Washington, Golden.   Members  $55,   Non-members $65.  Pre-registration required.  Check the CQC website for registration forms or contact Lucille at cckquilting@comcast.net.
