Challenge Yourself: Unpredictable Outcomes from Obtuse Ideas

Pat Pauly is a surface design artist from Rochester, NY. Known for her improvisational technique, Pauly uses bold color and unusual juxtapositions of printed and painted fabric. 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. 

In addition to her work in textiles, her work as an exhibition designer allows a breadth of experience in design. This exposure to work in exhibitions with collections as different as dinosaurs, to Impressionist paintings to Tiffany glass, lead her to design as well as curate in 2004 "Quilts Uncovered: Treasures from the Genesee Country Village & Museum".

The Lecture

The quilt world is full of bazaar ways to tease out work through themes, fabric choices, or (worst) deadlines. Take a look at how Pat Pauly embraces a challenge, sees a design decision, and comes up with a solution no one else would think to make. And be sure to take notes on how to use a challenge to turn obtuse ideas in to successful quilts. The PowerPoint presentation is full of examples, with 350 images never enough.
