We continue to introduce all our fabric designers you can find on modes4u.com. Today it’s the turn of successful designer Patty Young, who is a licensed textile designer for Michael Miller.

Patty Young

Patty Young truly made her passion into her profession. She grew up in San Jose, Costa Rica, and later moved to the United States where she got her university degree in Graphic Design and Photography. Since 2005 she has been working fulltime as a textile designer. She started working for Michael Miller fabrics in 2008 and is about to launch her 10th collection ‘Textured Basics’ with them at this Fall’s International Quilt Market. While her newest collection will focus around basic geometric prints such as dots, stripes, diamonds, houndstooth or hexagons, all of her collections have quite different inspirations: “I draw inspiration from my travels, my children, my background and nature. I have several travel inspired collections, like Andalucia, Mezzanine and Heaven & Helsinki. Flora & Fauna and Lush were inspired by nature. Playdate was inspired by my two daughters. My most recent collection, Textured Basics, just draws inspiration from modern, simple and minimalistic design aesthetics.”

We carry lots of Patty Young fabrics in our shop. Just a couple of days ago we added lots of prints from her beautiful Heaven & Helsinki collection to modes4u.com, but also stock many designs from Andalucia or Lush for example.

Besides designing for Michael Miller Patty also wrote a sewing book and is the lead designer of MODKID LLC, a company she owns and operates with her husband. They specialize in high quality boutique-style sewing patterns which include children’s clothes, doll outfits, purses and other assorted accessories and home furnishings. Currently they are working on their Fall/Winter 2012 line of sewing patterns.
