I'm a Pat Sloan Fan

I love all her BOM's and sew alongs.  I don't always join in but I save all the patterns.  This time however I am joining in on 2 sew alongs.

The first is "Out of the World".  I'm not using the same fabric as she is.  I am using some batiks that I got a while ago.  Here is the first block.

It's called "Space Shuttle".  Mine is called "Star Gazing".

The other sew along is called Flower Bouquet.

This is a 12" block.  It is the first of 20 blocks and it is called "Seed Catalog".  I'm using a fat quarter bundle designed by Edyta Sitar.  Lots of blues and beige's.

My January UFO is coming along nicely.  I now have 9 pieced blocks made and I have one applique prepped and ready to go.  I really want to finish this top by the end of the month.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you get some time to get some sewing done.

Hugs, Cathy



Two very pretty blocks--love the colors you have chosen for both--
happy stitching--

I have so many of Pat’s patterns that are free. This year I am limiting my monthly to only one! Then And Again Quilts https://thenandagainquilts.wordpress.com/2019/01/04/red-and-black-double-t-quilt/ is doing a little BOM doing Capital T blocks. She has done a lot of research work on this project. I am, of course 3 months behind, but plan on catching up and this will be the only one I even think about doing!

I have my proposed list and my real ‘I will do’ list ready to go after completing my Brinton Hall version so I am caught up from prior years!

You will have a pretty quilt at the end of the year.

I like the colors in Star Gazing. I have no batiks in my stash.

I just purchased the two Splendid Sampler quilt books. I just recently started watching Pat Sloan's Fireside Chats and getting more interested in doing some of the sampler blocks.

I'm alway impressed at all that you do. These are super cute blocks and your fabric choices are fabulous.

Wow Cathy those are so pretty!!! I love Pat Sloan too - I remember if I saw a magazine with a pattern in it by her, I would buy it. I wonder what happened to them.....haven't seen any quilt magazines since we moved, maybe I should explore my closets, lol!!!
