Pat fell in love with quilting, sewing triangles and squares together, eventually teaching herself everything that could be achieved using traditional quilting techniques. Throughout the years, her taste started evolving and she began to cross the bridge towards art quilts. First, she started with landscapes and with time her style became more abstract. She had a hard time finding color variations in batiks and that’s when she decided to paint her own fabrics. She began to see that quilters loved them, and not too long after that, Walter and Pat founded Art Gallery Fabrics.
