On Tuesday, March 19, 2013, the quilt world lost a legend.
Everyone at C&T Publishing is saddened with the news that Pat Campbell of Dallas Texas has passed away in her home surrounded by loved ones.
Pat was a dynamic quilt artist, teacher, fabric designer, and author known for her unique style of Jacobean applique. Pat’s use of non-traditional style patterns and bold colors have won her many ribbons and awards. She worked with thousands of students over the years to master and appreciate the art and skill of appliqué. In the Fall of 1998 she authored Jacobean Rhapsodies along with co-author Mimi Ayers for C&T Publishing.
Pat took her first quilting class in 1984 and had always been drawn to the fantasy botanicals of the Jacobean style crewel embroidery designs. Adapting these graceful curves and stylized leaves to appliqué designs have won Pat many awards over the years. Pat has been the recipient of 3 Best of Show awards, one in Lancaster, Louisville, KY, Dallas, 2 Founders Awards in Houston, and 2 Pride of Dallas awards at Dallas Quilt Celebration.
I’ve always enjoyed working with Pat and her husband John and our hearts go out to John and the rest of the family. Pat will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
