pat sloanPat Sloan has been creating since she was a child.  From the first shoebox dioramas to sketches for a fabric line, there has always been creative energy flowing.  When she tried her hand at quilting in 1985, she never looked back.  Now, owner and founder of the quilting design and publishing company Pat Sloan & Co., she has published over 20 books, more than 100 patterns, nearly 10 fabric lines, and has had her work featured in many of our magazines.  
 
Pat first began sharing her knowledge through her publications, workshops, and lectures, but has expanded her reach through the internet and social media. Pat's overall passion has always been encouraging others to harness their creative energy and have fun with their quilting!

American patchwork Guest Roseann Kermes guest

Roseann Kermes of Rosebud's Cottage is back to chat with me about making ourselves a better quilter. This is our hobby and we all approach it a different way. Some of you love perfection, and really want to embody that in your quilt making. Others want to create is a more free flowing way. But we all want to be better to some degree. Roseann and I got to thinking about that and came up with Five things that we think help us all be a better quilter!
