My latest quilt finish is a 28x28" mini quilt designed by American quilter Pat Sloan called "Let's Go Sew".
I have used needle turn applique for all the pretty bits, together with basic machine piecing for the borders and the background. Previously I had made another of Pat Sloan's minis named "The Letter F" so I was keen to coordinate the same fabrics and colours. The fabric featured on the border is Michael Miller's "Park Slope".

As the "Park Slope" fabric is quite detailed I have left my border simple instead of using the fancy edges that Pat has used in her original design. This is Pat Sloan's original design (below) and a link to her shop.

I originally started this project back in July, but as usual it just sat and sat and sat until I finally got around to quilting it last week. Now it is proudly hanging on my wall in my sewing room.
And THIS is what makes it all worthwhile; after I posted a photo of it on Instagram, the pattern designer herself - Pat Sloan - sent me a message - it totally made my night!!!
And then Pat even regrammed my photo. Oh my goodness talk about some massive head swelling going on here!!!
|I was regrammed by Pat Sloan! Squeeeeeeeeee!!!!|
