Hi everyone. My name is Pat and I'm a beginner quilter. I have been sewing most of my life and about 2 years ago I took up quilting. I love the sewing but I wasn't born with the creative gene so I have to ask about color combinations. I do have a 2nd place ribbon, though.

I'm a mom of 4 and a grandmom of 1. None of my children (all adults now) live nearby so the quilting is a good thing to keep me busy. I've worked in not-for-profits or health care all my life and now work for the State Health Department.

I'm an avid reader, enjoy a good meal and and a great movie from time to time. And I enjoy traveling.

Pat

Welcome to the Board Pat, from SoCal! One easy way to pick colors for a quilt is to find one print that you love - then choose from the colors in that print!

Welcome! I grew up about 50 miles downriver - by the Kingston Rhinecliff bridge. There are a couple other Hudson Valley natives here too.

welcome Pat. I'm the Mom of five, grandma of five and none live close by so quilting keeps me busy. If you have a question, there is always someone here to help you out. I'm in FL but love NY, my youngest lives in Astoria.
