Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles & Quilts!

Pat shares her collection of antique quilts.

Did you know most quilters love math and have always used basic squares, hexagons, dia- monds, etc., for patterns? Many antique quilts were made from fabric women already had – old shirts, aprons, dresses, curtains, etc. Pat’s lecture and col- lection of antique quilts from the late 1800s take you back in time as you share their wonderful histories! Several tops arevery old – kept carefully and lovingly packed for travel to her lectures. See how they survived time and wear, and how hexa- gons and diamond quilt patterns from our grand- mother’s era are popular today! Guests at Pat’s lectures are encouraged to take pictures – bring your camera, pencil and paper. As an added treat, her latest book, “Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles – Quilts!”, will be available for purchase and signing.
