Pat Sloan's Holiday Book Tour - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Pat Sloan’s Holiday Book Tour

We were thrilled to receive an invite from Pat Sloan to join her Holiday Celebrations Book Tour! Pat Sloan’s Holiday Celebrations Quilt Book is chock-full of holiday inspiration for all the memorable moments throughout the year. Pat has included 17 patchwork and fusible appliqué projects for Valentine’s Day, Easter, the Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

In celebration of the book release, Pat has planned some fun book giveaways and we have one here for you, too! Read on to find out more!

Quilty staffer Kate chose to make the Sparklers Quilt, and she’s here today to share it with you, so take it away Kate!

The Sparklers Quilt

This 4th of July-themed quilt was calling out to me. It’s stunning, so no wonder it’s on the cover of the book! Although I love the red, white and blue (especially the blue background – how fun is that?!), I wanted to try the quilt in Christmas colors. Here is Pat’s version:

And here is mine:

For my quilt, I chose a collection to match my home decor. It’s called Christmas Morning by Lella Boutique (due out later this summer), and it has some soft greens with gray and red that I really love.

For the background I chose a basic from Robin Pickens called Thatched. Since I changed the background from dark to light color, I modified the pattern to use a dark fabric where the pattern calls for light, and used a light fabric where the pattern calls for dark. I printed a copy of the pattern and used notes to label my fabrics to keep everything straight! Pat’s book is well-written and the pattern instructions are detailed with diagrams and photos. It’s nice and easy to follow.

Holiday Celebrations gives instructions for traditional piecing, but I used some Triangles on a Roll Triangle Paper to make the half square triangles and Flying Geese Foundation Paper Pads for the ribbon border. If you don’t have a quilt with a fancy inner border like this, you should try it. This was a first for me, and I like the result!

With those big blocks, Sparklers is a very satisfying quilt to make.

I used Scarlet Grunge for binding and Cuddle in Platinum as the backing. It’s sooo soft! The pantograph design is called Feliz Navidad by Urban Elementz, and it shows up beautifully on the Cuddle fabric.

Pat Sloan’s Holiday Celebrations Quilt Book has an amazing variety of quilts for all seasons, and I can’t wait to try more! You can follow the author, Pat Sloan, on Instagram (@quilterpatsloan) to see more of the quilts.

  123. Kate, I LOVE your Sparklers quilt! I have to make a Christmas version as you did. My favorite holiday? Easy. Thanksgiving, because it’s about getting everyone together and having a feast. I love Christmas, but it’s so exhausting: entertaining, baking, shopping for gifts and groceries, wrapping those gifts, decorating, etc, etc. That’s why Thanksgiving ranks number one for me: Skip all the gifts and overdecorating and go straight to getting together over a fabulous meal. 😉 But Christmas is definitely the holiday I’d make a quilt for, hands down.

  133. I love Christmas. Enjoy having the family over and just enjoy talking… eating and laughing
