I Partied with Patrick . . .

. . . and 32 friends. I spent last weekend with the Valley of the Sun Quilters in Phoenix. Their guest speaker was Patrick Lose. He spent a most enjoyable Saturday afternoon with us.

He shared a bit of his history and a lot of his fabulous quilts, fabrics, books and patterns–so many that his friend Gary came to help out.

Quilts from Patrick's New Book

I thought this design (from his not yet released book, Poster Quilts) would be perfect to adapt for a painted floor cloth for my loft.

Edited to add a correction: the Hibiscus Runner is from a new pattern, not the Poster Quilts book . . . which makes perfect sense if you think about it . . . doh!

After the talk, the room broke into a feeding frenzy as the quilters scrambled to check out the books, patterns, and fabrics that Patrick had brought for us . . . pandemonium ensued. You don't have to believe me. You can read about it on Patrick Lose's blog from the man himself: Quilter's Gone Wild. While you're there, be sure to check out his new club for quilters, Party with Patrick. He told us a bit about it and it sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun . . . kind of like Patrick himself ;-)

It was a weekend stuffed full of activity . . . I'll blog more about it soon.
