Held a 3-day IQ Workshop on June 10th thru June 12th at A Quilter's Choice Studio in Highlands Ranch, CO, GA.

Patty is an awesome instructor!  Our 3 days were jam packed with basics and advanced techniques and lots of short cuts and tips.  Can’t wait to get the quilt on my machine finished so I can play with what I learned.
If you get a chance to take a class with Patty, do it!

Dear Patty, Thank you doesn’t begin to describe how grateful I am for your class! The quilt map that I sent you is now all stitched out. I could NOT have done it without the knowledge you shared with us and your fabulous handouts!! Thank you, Sandra Stansell :)

2022 Classes

Held a 3-day IQ Workshop on August 27th thru August 29th at A Quilter's Choice, Myrna Ficken's studio in Highlands Ranch, CO just South of Denver.

Hi Patty... 🙂I just wanted to pop in and hello... I also thank you yet again for the workshop at Myrna's. I have been working through my Holiday rush of quilts and I truly feel like I have a whole new system with the things I learned from you... from the most simple set up to realigning the pattern... setting in blocks and sizing appropriately... it all is finally clicking in my head!!! Yes... when I get stuck... I still hear your voice walking me through step by step... Even my Husband commented that the workshop was the best investment in my business!!... 🙂

Held a 3-day IQ Workshop on October 3rd to October 5th at Katydids Quilting Studio in Toccoa, GA.

2019 - 2020 Classes

I just finished another two Workshops. One on January 10th & 11th, at Donna Thomas Quilt Studio in San Angelo, TX, and a second Workshop on February 8th & 9th, at Katydids Quilting Studio here in Brooksville, FL.

Some of the comments from the attendees are below:

San Angelo Class -

I loved this class.  I've been quilting for several years but I'm self taught.  Some of the class content I was already familiar with, but I had several "lightbulb" moments.

Thank you! You are a gifted, excellent instructor.

Best class ever!  You are an excellent teacher - Look forward to more classes.

I would highly recommend this two day workshop . . . It was worth every penny!

Brooksville Class -

Absolutely loved the course!  Exceeded all expectations.  So glad I made the trip (from Canada).  Wonderful teacher, wonderful studio, excellent course content.  Would highly recommend this course!

I learned a lot that will help me quilt faster and better.

I am a newbie to longarming & IQ, but I learned soooo much!

As a highschool teach of 35 years and college instructor of 10+, you do a great job!

Some comments from two Workshops. One on August 10th & 11th, at Red Bird Quilts (Sherri Hayes) in Holt, FL, and a second Workshop on August 24th & 25th, at Katydids Quilting Studio here in Brooksville, FL.
