About Quilting :: Okan Arts

Patricia Belyea’s Quilting Studiothere’s always lots more to learn

This page was suggested by a Girl Scout troop in Seattle. In researching quilting and quilt guilds for their badges, the girls found my website. They asked me to make my Resources section more helpful.

Here are links to websites that offer more information about quilting; some general, some detailed.

If you have any suggestions for additional quilting resources, please let me know—patricia@okanarts.com.
