I love your quilt! I am excited to get mine put together. I noticed your clothes line pins and love how decorative they are. Where did you find them?

I love this quilt ! And this is the first moment of inspiration I have had since Christmas... for some reason I have not set foot in my sewing room since before December 31st... but your quilt is so pretty, I just gotta try it

Vicki Robles

I love, love, love how your quilt turned out. And, love that smiling, beaming face of yours. You are such a kind person and it shows in your face. I will have to get busy and make two of those blocks a month to finish them by Jan.1, 2020. Ugh, I wish I would quit getting broken bones which interrupt my quilting time each year for the past 3 years.
Anyway, I feel like a "Debbie Downer" right now and that is what I didn't mean by this note to you. I need to finish downloading the patterns. Thank you for all the time you give to us as a whole!! Piece, love and blessings to you, Pat, Vicki

Oops, I forgot to share what I collect: lots and lots of fabric, I think every type of notion made, I don't have any Singer sewing machines but I have about 4 or 5 Janome machine, 1 Babylock Destiny 2, 1 Babylock Elissimo, 1 Babylock Serger, 1 Juki Serger and Quilting puzzles. Those were the quilting collections---I have tons of quilting books, patterns, rulers and templates. I also collect tea cups and saucers, tea pots and anything realated to quilting for the walls. lol Piece, love and blessings, Vicki

I think my husband might say I collect too much! Antique and vintage dolls, old sewing machines and paraphernalia, toy sewing machines, books, fabric, yarn, Eiffel Towers and handcrafted items.

I love the picture of your scissors! Very cool looking! I’ve got a collection of unused crayons in their boxes and I’ve got crayolas retired colors. I also have a few cookie jars and my moms collection of tea pots


I love the picture of your scissors. Now my husband would want to know why you need so many. My decorative collection has been Hummels some which I inherited. I’m not adding any more as soon it will be time to downsize. My useful collection is fabric & patterns. But if you stopped by you might think my collection is dust bunnies. But once the gardens, vegetable & flower, are done they’ll disappear I think.

Hi Pat,
I have a few special collections which include pincushions and other vintage sewing notions. I also collect vintage embroidered lines, and hankies which I am planning to make a quilt with them. My mother always carried a hankie in her purse. She would crochet lovely edgings on plain hankies. My mother had been gone for a very long time, but I am so grateful that I have some of these lovely lines etc. of hers. Then I have a small collection of vintage embroidered samplers. Some I made as a girl, and it was how I first learned embroidery.
As for colors, right now I am working with 1930's fabrics, my favorites (do you see a pattern here with my collections?) ha.. but recently I have been collection fabrics with aqua's and reds and pinks..
Thanks for all of your lovely B.O.M. and books, newsletters, blog & podcasts. You are such a generous person.
Cheers, maggie

Rebecca Lance

Love your quilt and your scissors collection! I did a 100 block a day challenge last year where you sew 1 block of Tula Pink's City Sampler book a day. I decided at the start I would just do an improtue fabric pull for each block and just have fun playing. I did assign colors to a set of blocks like I started with put because I had the most of that color of scraps, then orange and ended up doing rainbow blocks. I finished the blocks but haven't sewn together the top yet. Hopefully, soon, though.

Jan Behm

Pat, I LOVE the colors you chose for the FQS charity quilt! I liked theirs too but I really LOVE yours! Thanks for sharing!

Brenda Battle

Love your quilt and that you give back so much of your talent to others. My daughter and I did what we called Project 366 because it was a leap year. We took a photo a day. It did not matter what the photo was. It was a fun year for us. We went on rides and did photos and sometimes it was just something silly. As we were out taking photos, we discovered many letters of the alphabet in the trees so we decided we would do that next and then print them for people to buy. We are still looking for 2-3 letters and enjoying daughter-mom bonding in the process. She is my best friend.

Melissa Jefferys

Your quilt is beautiful! As for something that I collect, all I can say is that 'Snoopy' is my all time favorite Peanuts character. I have been collecting him since I was in my teens (over 45 yrs). I love this dog. He is everywhere in my house.

Pat Sloan

that's fun, I love Snoopy!

Pat Sloan

What a fabulous project!


thank you Jan!


sounds gorgeous! that is a fun 100 day


I adore Samplers Maggie! Great collections and i'm grateful that you follow along and have fun!

Cindy, Moda sells decorative clothespins. You might have to do some "hunting" on the internet, but I bought some not long ago. Google Moda Clothespins - that may get you started. Good luck, Suzan

Chris Steadman

Oh Pat, you really DO have a lot of scissors! When I was very young my mother started a collection of tea cups for me from every summer vacation spot we visited. After I married I continued collecting them from places my own family visited and then I got into teapots as well.I don't buy them as often as I have run out of room to display them. They bring me joy as I look at each one and remember the family fun we had each summer.
