Customer Gems - Patricia Caldwell
This weeks gems is another desert-inspired quilt that combines hand dyed fabric, couching, photography and feather charms. The fabric is from the Kashmir Gradient. The photographs are her own that were digitally manipulated and printed in fabric.
This was the best part of my vacation. I know that's not saying much given how the vacation started, but I have wanted to meet Patricia for a long time and we had the best afternoon together Tuesday. We started with a tour of the gallery where her work is sold and we posed for a photo (that we both hate) in front of Desert Landscapes.
I do have the best customers!
For sharing, Patricia received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.

What fun! I'm glad you got to something good.:-) The colors of Patricias (and your) are beautiful. Makes a striking wall hanging. And BTW, tho you both might disparage the photo, to me you both look like someone I would like to know.

It always amazes me to see what Patricia does with your fabrics. It is great to be able to put a face with the name, also.

I think that is a lovely picture of you and Patricia. You don't look too pale for all you went thru with the altitude sickness. Patricia's work is so beautiful and she does such amazing pieces with your fabric.

I wonder who was more excited about meeting - you or Patricia! It must have been a joy for you to see her work in person.
