Meet Patricia Brown – Author of Easy Batik Landscape Quilts

3

I began my quilting journey in 1978 very reluctantly! A good friend kept trying to get me to go with her for quilting lessons and I kept putting her off. I thought I didn’t have enough interest. She finally wore me down and from the first lesson I found I couldn’t get enough!

I made samplers, Amish-style quilts, and traditional quilts, as everyone did back then. As time went on, I lost interest in the same old fabrics.

I had a second son and that pretty much stopped my quilting life for many years. I’ve always been a stay-at-home mom, so when the last son left home, I had lots of time on my hands. I visited a quilt shop in Indianapolis, saw the batik fabrics, and fell in love all over again!

Batiks have opened up a whole new world to me. All kinds of designs keep dancing in my head. I loved putting together all the different color combinations that are so uniquely batik.  “Naturescapes” is how I think of my designs. Using basic techniques and beautiful fabrics, a traditional quilter can easily become an art quilter.
