Welcome to Ocean Waves Quilting Company. My name is Pat Harrison and I am a longarm quilter, quilt guild lecture and workshop presenter, and a Quilt Judge certified by the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges.
I hope you find my website to be informational, inspiring, and fun. I have been long arming since 1999; have won numerous regional and national awards for quilting my own quilts and those of my customers. My articles, quilt designs and my quilting have also been published in books, magazines and even been on television and on a DVD.
I live in rural Rhode Island with my very supportive mechanical engineer husband and our Westie Chloe, and enjoy visits from our two grown-up daughters, Liz and Abby, and from grandkids Sophia and Brandon.
I enjoy all aspects of the quiltmaking process although I have to admit that my particular favorite of the process is designing quilting that will enhance the work of the quilt top. I really enjoy seeing the transition a quilt top goes through as it is quilted and the third dimension emerges.
Keep in touch!
