From Pat's Website:
Known for her improvisational technique, Pat Pauly uses bold colour and unusual juxtapositions of printed and painted fabric, to create absolutely stunning art. Her workshops on contemporary art quilts carry the same qualities as her work—energized, spontaneous, and artistic. With a mastery of diverse construction techniques, Pat Pauly uses textiles as a medium of choice.
CUTTING UP THE PRETTIES 2 days$120 for current SAQA members, $140 for all othersThurs Oct 9, Friday Oct 10, 2014 - 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. each dayat the Brookswood Seniors Centre, 19899 - 36 Ave, Langley, V3A 2R320 participants max sponsored by SAQA BCWe all have that great yard of fabric that we purchased, made, traded or were given. But using it up is sometimes the most difficult thing to do! Sometimes that fabric just does not "play" well with others. Pat will show you how to "cut up the pretties" to use that special fabric to its best advantage. So, gather those great and unique fabrics, in combination with other handmade or commercial fabrics, and explore design and colour in some careful exercises that will give you a road map for creating with one of a kind pieces. Pat will show various design solutions while you learn a new language in design elements. This class will teach you to embrace and USE the special fabric we love (but are afraid to use) and we will overcome our fear of 'Cutting Up the Pretties." This is a hands on sewing class where we will start a notebook of ideas as well as begin an art quilt using our great fabric.

After having diverged several times to accept positions in other aspects of the design profession, she cane back to full time contemporary quilting, where she had started in the early 1980's. All is fair game for inspiration and comment as Pat presents more than 400 images in the space of an hour; you will never think of the word "quilt" in the same way, again.
