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 Quilting Pocast episode 346 Deborah Fisher

Artist and author Deborah Fisher’s book ‘Quilt Giving’ caught my eye. Quilters love to make for others and one of our greatest joys is giving a quilt. Debroah designed 19 quilts that let us make projects that are not super time consuming and are wonderful to look at. Many are a more modern flair and you can use your scraps, prints, and solids to create warm and cozy presents. She is also the founder of the Bright Hopes Collaborative Quilt Project and I’m excited to learn about why she created it.

My guests today Dora Cary, Deb Grogan, and Jacquelynne Steves Chat with Pat

American Patchwork Quilting Pocast episode 345 Dora Cary

It’s always fun for me to be able to talk with future guest at a show where they have all their quilts for me to see.. well maybe not all but a group! I had seen Dora Cary of Orange Dot Quilts booth and knew I had to meet. I didn’t the first time, but after inviting her to the show, we had a chance to talk this past May at an event. I love all her work, it’s fresh, inspiring and something I’d like to make. She is from Romania, now a US Citizen, and had no knowledge of quilts, I think you will enjoy meeting her and her fun and different journey into making quilts!
