I used to ask my local shop if she could get Pat to come for a trunk show and she always promised she'd try.....and then I guess everything lined up nicely and voile, Pat's doing a trunk show and 2 days of classes at Quilting Possibilities!
Tonight was that trunk show.....
Pat was showing off her 2015 Mystery Quilt.........My picture doesn't do it justice. Suffice it to say, I'm sorry I didn't follow along this year. I will for sure next year though :)
I loved hearing how Pat got into the business and enjoyed her slide show. She still has her 1st quilt and subsequent quilts that she made for her different books.
I sat right next to this quilt and have also admired it on Pat's blog so I bought the pattern and then when I got home I IMMEDIATELY ordered the fabrics to make it. As Pat said, it was all about the polka dots...they made the entire quilt!
I also bought a fat quarter bundle of her new line, 4 yards of her red sunflower-like fabric and for this weekend only, if you bought 4 yards you got 2 yards free so YES, I bought 2 yards of the green dot, and a black on white pin dot . I will most likely use the black on white pin dot for the background for whatever I end up making.
Debbie and Jim at Quilting Possibilities had little gift bags and dessert for all the girls that attended....
Pat Sloan is an absolute doll and a joy to talk to. I wish I could have attended a class but since I couldn't, I'm just happy to have been able to attend the trunk show.
If you ever have the opportunity to attend one of Pat's trunk shows, you really have to!
