My name is Pearl Pereira, I am the owner and designer behind P3 Designs located in sunny southern California. I started my pattern business in 1995 and have self-published over 200 quilt patterns. I have a passion for applique and love the Baltimore Album quilts made in Baltimore between 1846 and 1852. It’s those amazing quilts that continue to inspire me. As a self-taught artist, I design my themed quilts in a Baltimore style with wreaths, baskets, pictorial scenes.
My passion for appliqué, and a desire to share my methods with others, I filmed my first video Appliqué with Pearl in 2000, followed by Appliqué Techniques with Pearl in 2006. Additionally, and Off-The-Block Applique Techniques Book 2015. We manufactures and sells our own appliqué products, including the Appliqué Stiletto, Pressing Tool, Ultimate Appliqué Template Paper and Straw Needles.
Currently teaching my Off-The-Block applique techniques at week long workshops at Empty Spools Seminars in Monterey California and Annual retreats at Quilt Mercantile/Quiltagious Quarters in Celeste Texas each June and October.
I have designed the patterns for Red Rooster fabric line: Simply Spooky and Simply Spooky 2 collections Country Cousins and Little Red Riding Hood. Baltimore Spring and for RJR Fabrics.
