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 and Quilting Pocast guest Caron Mosey June 2015

When I learned to quilt, I was taught all by hand.. cardboard templates, cut the shapes, piece and then quilt both by hand. I find hand quilting beautiful. As with any aspect of quilt making … hand quilting takes practice and there are tools, tips and tricks to do beautiful work. Caron Mosey loves hand quilting, writes about it and runs a group at Facebook where quilters share and learn from each other. Today she is going to share some of her hand quilting expertise with me!
