It's FINALLY here – the day we start our Designer Blog Hop featuring Kathy Peterson's latest line of outdoor furniture from Cedarstore.com.
First up is the ever-so-talented Pat Sloan, who has been creating since she was a child. From the first shoebox dioramas to sketches for a fabric line, there has always been creative energy flowing. When she tried her hand at quilting in 1985, she never looked back. Now, owner and founder of the quilting design and publishing company Pat Sloan & Co., she has published over 20 books, more than 100 patterns, nearly 10 fabric lines, and has had her work featured in major quilt magazines.
Pat first began sharing her knowledge through her publications, workshops and lectures but has expanded her reach through social media. She has built quilting Yahoo groups, forums, Facebook communities and even the group "Quilters in Second Life" for quilting enthusiasts using the popular virtual world Second Life. Also interested in beading, painting, and paper crafting, Pat's overall passion has always been to help others harness their creative energy.
You can follow Pat on her Facebook page to read all about her adventures. Don't be surprised if you see your creating amazing quilts with her Sizzix Big Shot Pro!
