Guest Blog Post- PAT SLOAN

If there were to be a reality quilting show, Pat Sloan would certainly be the one I would bet on. I always say she is the hardest working woman in the cotton business. Find out about Pat and her newest book using Novelty prints. Thanks for stopping by.
PAT:
There are endless reasons I love a 'Novelty' print.  Often it is the image...
Who can resist Aneela Hoey's Sherbet Pips? 

Or a great Sock Monkey fabric.. this is a quilt in my book
 

And let's not forget the 12 days of Christmas (I adore KateSpain!)!

After chatting to a zillion and one quilters about WHY a novelty print is used the same way a floral it, I wrote a book.
A book with 12 quilts that showcase these prints I love!
Not only that.. I give you a fun formula for adding a triple border to any panel..
can you say instant quilt?

Just the other day I had a baby quilt to make... I share the process using
a layer cake of Meadow Friends and the "Pair of Winners" Quilt.

  10. novelty prints are just FUN! lots of times when I need to make a baby quilt or a childs quilt for a gift I look at all the new layer cakes or charm packs that are out there and chose a few to whip up a quilt with. Bright, happy and just play fun! Looks like the book has some great quilts in it.

  13. I was in Williamsburg yesterday on the way home with the hubby. He graciously stopped at a local quilt store so I could shop - I think my trying to open the car door before we even stopped convinced him, LOL. Love 2 Quilt, don't you just love that name? Anyway, they had a panel of fabric featuring different birds in each panel. I had to buy it (I have 6 bird feeders in my backyard) and think I'll center them inside Ohio stars.
