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!

April Rosenthal  is a Quilt designer, new fabric designer with Moda, and she has a book coming out soon! April is also a busy mom with twins and another on the way. She has written about her quilting journey at her site and is so encouraging to everyone that they CAN be creative. I'm excited to have her share some tips and encouragement today, and give us a peek at her design process!

April Twelve-Words-BLock-of-the-Month-July

And April has this free pattern, which is just one block in a series. I think it would be great as a whole quilt of stars with just one embroidered, or as a pillow!
