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 120 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, 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 in Carlsbad California where I host 3 retreats each year. I Teach 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.
