Free pattern

In case you don't have this one in your stash, we've added my free "Good Morning" place mat to the website. I made an appearance on America Sews with Sue Hausmann and this is what we worked on. We're always getting emails from folks saying they couldn't find it on their site so now you can find it on mine.

Time for a creative getaway?

We're planning some true quilting celebrations at Patrick's Quilt & Create Studio for the upcoming year. Let us know what months are best for you to come to Phoenix, AZ, for a long weekend of quilting, CREATIVITY and camaraderie! If you've heard about our annual Dam Christmas Party, you won't want to miss our "home turf" retreats.

Quilt & Create Studio is Patrick's personal studio and home of his Quilting Celebrations with Patrick Lose show for It's also a great gathering place for all kinds of other creative activities and your group is welcome to hold your own retreats or guild meetings here, schedule permitting. We've had groups come for the day or evening for sew-ins and classes and love having the hustle and bustle of creativity here!

Post a comment, below, or contact Gary at or 623-414-9464 if you'd like more information on upcoming retreats, classes and other events on the calendar at the studio. We also invite you to subscribe here and check all fields of interest that apply so you'll always receive the latest pertinent info.

Join the online party!

We had a wonderful group of partiers, last year, for the online version of our popular "Party with Patrick" club and we're hoping you'll join us for year 2. Sign-ups have just begun and we're already looking at a FUN group.

Take a look here at what "Party with Patrick" offers online and, if you'd like to join us, it's a quick and easy process. For under 5.00 a month, you could be partying with us for a whole year!

Don't be a party pooper! Check it out :)

More Christmas-in-July :)

We're in the process of turning some of my patterns into ePatterns for the website that you can order and have emailed to you in PDF format. Some of the first year Party with Patrick patterns are already available and, back in 2009, this was the party project for the month of July. Now, even if you don't have a Party with Patrick club that meets in your local quilt shop, you can join our gathering of hundreds of quilters across the U.S. and Canada for the "monthly celebration of quilting and camaraderie".

Each of the Party with Patrick ePatterns also includes the supplemental materials like recipes, blank recipe cards and stationery that you can print as many times as you like for your personal use. Best of all, you can choose to print only the pages you need and you can save the PDF file on your drive for future use. No more paper patterns swallowed up somewhere in your creative space! ;-)

Be sure to check back often for the new additions of patterns from my Patrick Lose Studios line, as well. Based on your comments, this is what you want. So we'll add new ePatterns as quick as we can. 

Have a WONDERFUL July 4th weekend!! Be safe.
