Pam Buda shares her enthusiasm with quilters through her patterns and projects, and now through her first collection for Marcus Fabrics! Motivated by her Midwestern roots and a lifelong interest in fabrics and sewing, Pam finds inspiration in the lives of early prairie women, and the important role quilting & sewing played in their lives.

"If it is true what they say -- 'Do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life' -- then I go to play, not work. Second only to my husband and kids, quilting and working with fabric is my passion.

I learned to sew in high school home economics class, had a break from sewing in my 20's, and returned to sewing in my 30's. Sewing dolls was my first love, and I made hundreds of dolls over the years, selling them at craft shows. In the early 1990's, I patterned my original doll designs under the name Sew Happy Patterns, attending Quilt Market where I sold them to quilt shops all over the US and Canada. I began teaching doll making then as well.

Then, around 1997 I learned to quilt, and have never made another doll since! I began to teach quilting in 1999, which led to the start of my published quilt design company, Heartspun Quilts, in 2004. Over the years, I have had many wonderful opportunities to meet quilters and teach classes. I love to teach, and look forward to doing so for many years to come."

Pam has enjoyed numerous accolades and achievements in her quilting career, including:

  • Publishing designs in national magazines such as American Patchwork & Quilting, Quiltmaker
  • Offering lectures, trunk shows and workshops to guilds, quilt shops and quilt festivals across the US, with upcoming quilting cruise events scheduled for 2012 and beyond
  • Designing for BOMs, samplers and serial quilt projects for FatQuarterShop.com
  • Creating and maintaining Prairie Women's Sewing Circle Club

For her first collection with Marcus, Pam chose to mirror the popular colors of the era -- Indigo blues, double pinks, and sage greens. "All blend nicely with each other as well as in pairs, i.e., blue/pink, pink/green, blue/green, providing lots of creative combinations in quiltmaking. Lots of fun and different period neutrals add to the mix for even more possibilities," she says.
