PGT - Patterns From Grandmas Trunk - Patricia Friederich

I am originally from Costa Rica where I was fortunate to already have sewing classes starting at a young age in elementary school.  That, along with help from my mother and grandmother, taught me to sew at an early age.  After moving to Wisconsin in the mid-1990's, I took my first formal quilt class.  In 2013 Laundauer Publishing published my book Mosaic Tile Quilts featuring my designs inspired from mosaic tile floors from historical buildings in Costa Rica.

Since then, I have continued to keep designing a variety of quilts, table runners and wall hangings. My latest designs utilize wool hand applique, because I really enjoy sewing by hand. I also enjoy visiting quilting guilds and groups. I have made presentations and workshops in several states mainly focused in the mid-west. I have been fortunate enough to have my designs have on display at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts and have had one of my designs featured in Fons n Porter magazine. I also have designs published in Wool Works and Primitive Quilts magazines that I am very excited about. I also travel about once a year back home to Costa Rica to give classes at my family’s quilt shop which I really enjoy, plus I get to enjoy my mom’s cooking when I am there!
