Pat Yamin's Visit

April 28, 2019

We were fortunate to have Pat Yamin speak at our April guild meeting. Pat's  successful business Come Quilt With Me designs and manufactures plastic templates for quilters. She also teaches and lectures across the country and has authored 7 books. Pat is especially known for her vast collection of antique quilts which are a never ending source of inspiration to her. Since Pat lives close by in Brooklyn, she was able to load up the car with her collection to share with us.

 

Pat’s humor and history with quilting shown through as she displayed her antique quilts. Using them as a springboard she has designed modern versions of these quilts which are a delight to see juxtaposed against the old ones. Most of the quilts she brought were variations of patterns made by three shapes- hexagons, diamonds and triangles. Her book Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles- Quilts! has 10 variations based on these three basic shapes and is now a part of our lending Library.

 

Pat was nice and let us look (and touch)  all her quilts after the lecture. Thanks again for all the inspiration!

Visit her website comequiltwithme.com to check out all her books and patterns.
