For more than 20 years, Jan Patek has been designing primitive folk art quilts and publishing patterns in books. Jan also designs original fabric lines for Moda.

In response to an overwhelming demand, she began turning her dazzling quilt and fabric designs into kits so that her fans would be able to make the quilts they so admired. Jan has a passion for creating and for sharing her creativity with others. “I don’t want to make quilts and put them in a closet,” says Jan. “I want to provide a creative outlet for others”.

You can see all of her fabric turned into quilts on Jan’s website, www.janpatekquilts.com. Join one of Jan’s great quilts clubs or browse the books and quilt kits, relax, and be reminded of country, home, and family.
