Modern Traditionalism with Pati Fried

March 19 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for a lecture by Pati Fried: Modern Traditionalism.

Explore the principles of modern quilt design and how a traditional quilter might use these to challenge their design skills. By looking at fundamental design elements individually, it is easy to understand how to create original designs with a modern aesthetic.

About Pati:

Pati studied graphic design in college, but always found herself lingering in the textile department. After graduating and working in corporate marketing for several years, she finally discovered quilting and was hooked. Mixing pattern, color, and texture was a perfect fit for her, both as a quilter and a designer.

The clean lines and graphic images of modern design are a huge part of her happy place and she loves the free spirit of improvisational piecing. But the rich history and longstanding techniques of traditional quilting have always been close to her heart, too. She is amazed that such a humble American art form could explode into the strong, international quilting community we see today.

So, to keep her sanity and stay true to herself, she chooses to embrace it all – modern, improvisational, and traditional. By choosing elements from all three design styles in her work, she strives to create quilts that anyone can relate to.
