Pacific Rim Quilt Company started in 1980 with just two people, Nancy Lee Chong and Janice Lee Baehr, sisters with a passion for applique. On June 1, 2015, Nancy and Janice sold Pacific Rim Quilt Company to Mark and Connie Sayler, of Medford, Oregon. Read more about Mark and Connie on Connie's Resume page.
We began designing Hawaiian quilts with the very first quilts we made, Nancy in 1978 and Janice in 1982. We have been designing ever since. We introduced our first patterns in the 1980's, then watched the line and the business grow from there.
On June 1, 2015, Mark and I purchased PRQC from Nancy and Janice, with the intention of growing the business while maintaining its solid foundation. Nancy will continue to design for us, she will continue to teach, and you will see her with us at quilt shows - she is not going away! Nancy and I continue to design new patterns, so keep watching for new things.
We hope you enjoy what you see, and will become inspired to make your own Hawaiian Quilts, 2 Fabric Applique Quilts, or Applique Quilt Borders & Table Runners. Visit us often as our site is updated frequently.
