Quilter Spotlight: Pati Fried

Today we are spotlighting Pati Fried, a California-based “Modern Traditionalist” quilter, quilt pattern designer, teacher and speaker. The Guest Artist at this year’s Vallejo Piecemakers show Sew Amazing, it was great to see so many of her quilts in one place.

Founder of the “Indie Modern Quilters” group that meets 1st Thursdays at Wooden Gate Quilts, she is also a member of the East Bay Modern Quilters. She and Laura Nownes produce the popular sewing blog Sew How We Sew and she sells her patterns in her Etsy shop, though you may be seeing her at a guild near you with her busy speaking schedule this coming year.

Let’s take a look!
