A dynamo in the quilting world, Pam is the owner of the Log
Cabin Dry Goods Quilt Shop and Home Stitches, a professional longarm quilting
business. Her work can be seen in numerous publications and her clients include
professional quilters, designers and fabric and pattern companies. To date, she
has quilted over 7,000 quilts! In addition, she's made hundreds of her own quilts.
Her favorite kind of quilting is to mix appliqué with simple, scrappy-look
piecing, a style that has won her numerous ribbons.
Pam developed her "Designs
with Lines" machine quilting technique to speed up marking tops. Using simple
lines as guides, quilters can create their own individual designs. Her stencils,
videos, and sketchbooks full of ideas to go along with her stencils are available
from her Home Stitches Web site.
Pam grew up in Sacramento, California,
and now lives in Spokane, Washington. A quilter since 1970, and a longarm machine
quilter since 1988, she continues to teach machine quilting, piecing and appliqué
classes locally and at venues and shows across the country. She has appeared on
Quilt Central and with Linda Taylor on PBS television.
