Jan Patek




Good Morning, the sun is shining and all is well......today I've been invited out to lunch with a friend and that will be wonderful.  We're going to throw in a little shopping, so I'm excited about the prospects.  This cold that I have is still hanging around, however, it is time for an outing.

Jan Patek continues to inspire.......here she is, posing for me with her Girl Gang jacket on.  If you look closely you will see several names on the back of her jacket.  She has certainly worked with many inspiring designers over the years.  I was surprised to see Barb Adams name there.  I remember when I first became acquainted with Jan Patek designs, I believe she was associated with Linda Brannock at that time.  Anyway, it was love at first sight. There was a time when she had a connection with Sue Spargo.  Jan and those she worked with have greatly influenced my quilting over the years.

  1. Cute picture of Jan in her infamous jacket. I love her big quilt behind her, if only I could make everything I liked. Thanks for your market posts, they are wonderful.
    Are you going to put your kits on the website for Silent Night.
