One of the best things about my job is that I get to meet all kinds of creative, kindred spirits, like my friend Pat Sloan. Here we are at Quilt Market a couple of years ago:

Today, I wanted to show you Pat’s new book, Celebrate the Seasons! It is just adorable, and I think you’ll find lots of projects in here that you’ll like. I’m honestly having a hard time choosing a favorite… It’s full of cute projects that you can complete quickly and easily, and my pal Pat will walk you through everything!

I love that these projects are straightforward and not “fussy”- easy enough for the beginning to intermediate quilter, and yielding gorgeous results!! There are lots of different sized projects, to fit your schedule and your mood.

Visit Pat here.

As the name suggests, the projects are arranged by season, and you’ll find little quilts and wall hangings, table runners, place mats and pillows. How sweet is this little Spring bird applique? There are step-by-step instructions and tips for the machine applique.

Get ready for Summer with this Summer Sky pillow (and maybe make one for every single season! Just use your scraps from your other seasonal projects…) Don’t you love this beautiful, classic blue and yellow color scheme?

And this pumpkin wall hanging is perfect for fall- I love a pieced background for applique projects, it adds so much interest to the finished project:

This quilt is called Nordic Winter Dreams…. so stunning in blue and white… But guess what? If you’ve always dreamed of making a red & white quilt, this would be the perfect pattern for that!
