WOW -- You are amazing!!
I wish I could be so organized! :)


Glad you are feeling better . I don't know how you keep up with all you do but I sure appreciate your efforts .

Rebecca Christie

It's a candy shop seeing all the pictures of everyone's work. I am working on the Solstice and the splendid sampler- I am also doing the challenge for the UFO busting... and I want to do the Be My Neighbor and the Village (little houses). Along with the Children's Library- whew, that's a lot. Plus I do have some patterns I want to get to eventually. I don't know how you do it all. Makes me just a little dizzy thinking about it all. But you also inspire and encourage me to get things done. It's like one huge quilt guild here on Facebook- which I am so happy to be a member of. Thank you Pat and everyone here for all the love and inspiration.

Taylor Anderson

Glad to hear you're feeling better, Pat! My head spins thinking of all that you do! I certainly look forward to the weekly solstice blocks, and of course, Children's Library blocks, which I have yet to start. Good thing that's monthly. You have an amazing following, which I feel privileged to be a part of. So thank YOU for all your creativeness, and hard work.

And may 2017 be filled with love and joy, and prosperity and abundance for you and your family. And btw, if you ever need a Sherpa, I'm available!💐


I love the FQS Charity Sew Alongs...Glad you're doing it this year. It's beautiful!

Anita Barton

I have never heard of a charity quilt. I looked on the Fat Quarter shop, I see where you pay to reserve, then they ship you the quilt. What do we do with the quilt once it is completed? The reservation fee goes to Make a Wish, but what about the quilt?

Linda Leahy

Pat I read that the next aurifil designer of the month comes out on Sunday the 15th. I did last years the blue blocks but never saw a post on how to assemble to finish. Did I miss it or will it post on Sunday with the new One


You are a very busy lady! I have recently retired & have begun to understand the weekly projects you put up on the web. I'm so into them now!!!! Love what you do, Happy New Year!

Sharon Hughson

Makes me tired.

Vivian  vgutie_

Sounds like lots of fun. Keep me posted and I'll do what I can. Thanks for all the input.

Shirley Shirkey

wow busy lady, I am proud to say that I have finished my UFO #6 by the 12th of the month. This ufo challenage is fun and I am passing it on to my quilt group for a challenge. Such fun it can be. I have to say I am slow on the splendar sampler but have a few blocks done and more ready to sew and some embroidery ones blocks in progress. I love your site

Linda WOOD

You go girl. I wish I could manage my time better. Have a good week.


Thank you for the summary. There are so many projects that i got quite confused. I know the ads provide revenue, and this is your business but, for example, there is an ad for "signs you may have a fatty liver." Can you control the non-quilt ads on your blog?

Beth LaMotte

I'm glad to hear you are feeling better. Thanks for listing all the projects...I was already losing track of what I had started! I have to say thank you so much for the Solstice project. I am trying to use just 2 fabrics in each block and am loving the outcomes. There is much to be gained for me in simplifying my fabric choices. Looking forward to your future projects and hats off to all of you who have posted pics of your blocks. Wow! Very pretty and so inspiring!


Yee gads!! That's an amazing list and I am overwhelmed and I'm not doing ALL that you do.

Susan Jones

Yes I agree it is a candy or chocolate shop which one will I taste today.... I haven't posted photo's cause....but am doing the Splendid sampler and the Solstice blocks and enjoying doing them both as they are at opposite ends of the scale. Saving up the stitchery blocks for when I have back surgery and NEED to Sew Happy New Year everyone hope it is a very fulfilling year cheers

Cheryl Buchanan

So excited to be sewing along with you and the others! Can't wait to see what fun you have in store for us and thank you for all you do! You are loved.


Linda Leahy i did tell you the setting for Aurifil would be coming in late Jan or early Feb & I linked you to the ones already out there on the aurifil website


thanks for joining me everyone!


Like you, I look foward to a new year. I take a look back and see what I did and make plans for the new year. This year, each day of the week has an assigned project. Each week repeats until that project is completed, and a new project gets assigned.
You have more energy than I do!! How far in advance do you plan?
I enjoy your blog, and I am working on the Splendid Sampler ( Tuesdays & Thursdays) and your Solstice (Wednesdays).


You work a lot for your website to be great. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are a wonderful teacher and fun. And you keep offering us every day precious and easy treats for beginners like me. I'm so glad for the day that I found you on the Internet. Thanks Pat Sloan. Saludos.


In 2015 I printed out a sheet for keeping track of when you started a project and when you finished it, who you gave it to, the reason you made it, etc. I cannot find it anywhere on your site. I forgot to keep a blank copy for myself as I used up all the pages. Any idea where you have a copy?
