About Mama P.
I've had an interest in sewing since I was 10 years old. I fell into quilting after it no longer became lucrative for me to make clothes for my children or myself. Traditional piecing was my comfort zone, but then branched out into traditional cotton appliqué, then appliquéing with wool and enhancing it with embroidery stitches.
I love exploring art with pictorial quilts. My newest ventures are designing my first two quilt patterns, called Red, White, and Bloom, and Texas Strong.
I have taught Beginning Quilting at Saddleback College for Community Education in Mission Viejo, CA for two years. Teaching/speaking for guilds whether in person or Zoom has been a favorite experience of mine for the last 3 years.
I've also been fortunate to win multiple awards in our local Quilt Guild shows, Road to California, Nashville,TN, Grand Rapids, MI, and Paducah, KY. My quilts have been exhibited in Houston International Quilt Show, with one being a red and white quilt that was part of the "Ruby Jubilee" Quilt Exhibit at Houston 2014 and traveled for almost two years to different venues. Three of my quilts have been published in "Quilters Newsletter," "Quilt Mania," and American Quilter Magazines.
I have lived in California for most of my life.
