We are now on our fourth week of our 2018 Summer Book Club! This week’s featured author is a podcaster, expert quilt coach, scrappy quilter, fabric designer, and of course book author, Pat Sloan.
Pat is a very good friend of ours who has collaborated with us on many projects, from the Charity Quilt Alongs to the Just Another Button Company button clubs! We love working with Pat and enjoy having her awesome Teach Me books, which show you everything from how to make your first quilt to advanced techniques such as applique and machine quilting.
In Pat’s first book in the Teach Me series, the Teach Me to Applique Quilt Book, Pat shares her fusible techniques for machine-stitched quilts that are as delightful to touch as they are pleasing to the eye. The result is fusible applique that is soft, drapey and easy!
Following her book on applique, Pat shows you how to take your quilting skills to a whole new level with her Teach Me to Sew Triangles Book! You’ll discover 11 different ways to sew triangles, at least one method will be just right for you. Achieve successful results with half-square and quarter-square triangles, 60 degree triangles, flying geese and more.
One of the most frequently asked questions we get is how to free-motion and machine quilt. Well look no further, Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Machine Quilt Book is here to help! With this book, you will be guided step by step through walking-foot and free-motion quilting techniques.
And in her fourth Teach Me book series, Pat teaches you how to make your first completed quilt, from start to finish. With the Teach Me to Make My First Quilt Book, you’ll learn the basics, from selecting notions and cutting fabric to machine sewing to quilting and binding. You’ll be proud to finish your first quilt, the first of many.
