My name is Megan Patton, or Doe as my family calls me.   I am a quilter, painter, art gallery owner, wife, and mother to a dog named Leon.   

I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a BFA in Art.  After graduating I became a portrait artist and immersed myself into art festivals.  In 2011 a friend and I opened Yalo Studio and Gallery.  Painting has always been my first love, but my passion for quilting has slowing been making its way to #1.

Actually, I thinks it's already there... 

 

 

 

 

My grandma and great-grandma were both quilters. I did not want the art of quilting to end with them; so I taught myself.  It was 2008 when I made my first; it was hand-pieced and hand-quilted.  I now machine piece, but only hand-quilt. 

 

 

 

My husband and I live in Water Valley, Mississippi. It's a small town located 20 minutes south of Oxford.
