A Note from Pat:
Last summer when I was teaching in Exeter, England, we had
an exhibit of 30 of my Japanese inspired guilts and some of those made by my English students from my patterns. 150 people
paid the entrance fee and seemed to enjoy the works displayed.
I have been teaching a class of Japanese women
for over 30 years here in Minneapolis. Most of them are only here for a year or two while their husbands are pursuing various
educational or business goals. The core members of the group are either married to Americans or their husbands are here semi-permanently.
Many of the Asian fabrics are beautiful to my eyes and I am fascinated by the asymmetrical designs of the Japanese. Years
ago a book depicting Japanese crests was published and this has been a source of inspiration for my designs.
My Japanese students are only interested in making American patterns and do not seem to understand why I like the Asian fabrics
Last winter, 2014 which was a long one, I decided to make a series of panels using wrens.
It was the 25th anniversary of my mother's death and her favorite bird was the wren.
