Patti Hempen

Serendipity Sampler


Patti is an International quilting instructor now residing at Canyon Lake, Texas. She was born in Harvey, Illinois, a southern suburb of Chicago.

Quilting adventures all began after seeing a beautiful “Trip Around the World” quilt her sister-in-law, Michelle, made and it has been Patti’s passion ever since 1998, having created 100+ quilts. Colors, the brighter the better are her love and you will see this in her favorite quilt pattern, the kaleidoscope. Over the last years, she has won 26 ribbons and awards, also has had her quilts juried into multiple shows including the American Quilter’s Society Expo at Nashville, the American Quilter’s Society’s first show in Lancaster, PA, the AQS show in Paducah, Kentucky, the Mancuso Denver National, Mancuso’s Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza XVII and Quilting in the Garden in Livermore, California.

She has owned “End of The Rainbow Quilts” in Texas since 1998 and began teaching professionally at that time. Since then, she has become a designer and a quilt show judge as well as an author of a new quilting book. She continues to do lecturing, trunk shows, teaches piecing, hand and machine applique and fabric selection as well as her wonderful new design techniques.

Patti continues in her quest to share her knowledge and expertise to create art, teach and share with others to be the best they can be and has expanded her horizons while teaching on cruise vacations and abroad. Having tried to grasp every aspect of the quilting world she possibly can, she is truly delighted and pleasantly overwhelmed with the creativity this art brings to all of us.
