EAT YOUR FRUITS AND VEGGIES by Pat Sloan
I started sewing as a child (love those doll clothes!) and I continued to sew clothing for myself until I discovered quilting. I’ve been quilting now for over 15 years. I soon started teaching and then I decided to put my ideas into patterns.
I run my own design business called Pat Sloan & Company located in Fairfax County, Virginia. I have found that I really enjoy designing patterns and seeing what other quilters do with my patterns.
In addition to publishing my own patterns, I design patterns for McCall’s Quilting, McCall’s Quick Quilts, American Patchwork & Quilting, Quilters World, Create & Decorate, and the Fons and Porter magazines. I have designed several fabric lines with P&B Textiles. Starting in 2012 my fabric will be with Moda Fabrics.
For my machine work I use Aurifil 50 and 40 weight threads. I love them for Blanket Stitching, piecing and quilting.
Pat does a fantastic job as the Designer of the Month coordinator for Aurifil
Pat Sloan has designed a colorful and fun new fabric and thread line called ” Eat Your Fruits and Veggies”. Pat’s choices of Aurifil thread to pair with her Moda fabrics are impeccable.

OVER THE RAINBOW by Edyta Sitar
Edyta’s love for fabric began at a very young age – when she used her mother’s newly hung drapes to create her first fabric project! Fortunately for all of us, her mother recognized her passion for fabric and thus began the journey with fabric and sewing. Creating beautiful gowns ushered Edyta into creative textile design and established the building blocks which lead her into a quilting adventure.
Quilting has enabled Edyta to express herself; her designs are the avenue to release artistic passion! The combination of inspiration from nature, a love for fabric, a keen eye for color, and her family teachings blended into the recipe for developing a flourishing talent for designing quilts and quilting patterns.
“My children and my husband are my greatest motivation, providing the basis that you can accomplish anything you want if you just set your mind to it. Being able to do what I love and share this love with others is the greatest feeling and reward I could imagine! This is the Cinderella dream for me.”
As the owner and co-founder of her company, Laundry Basket Quilts, she has been published in magazines world-wide and her quilts have been honored through receiving numerous awards.
Edyta is proud to carry on her family tradition that fabrics and threads have seamlessly stitched together through the generations.
Edyta Sitar from Laundry Basket Quilts has created the most vibrant collection of 50 wt threads in Over the Rainbow. ” A color wheel of threads for every project” and the most sumptuous companion for her newest line of batiks for Moda Fabrics.
This bright and colourful collection will be offered in a small box set with 10 colors of 50wt thread
The collection case will include 12 colors of 100% 50wt cotton containing 1422 yds each

Are these available to buy anywhere online? Or only at a LQS? I love them! And I’ve never used Aurifil so these look like a great place to start. LOL

Thank you!! 🙂
Moda fabrics have inspired me to use more pattern along with my bright colors. The “Over the Rainbow” collection is just what I’d love to use. I’m in the middle of 3 quilts, but have to get a baby quilt done this week. It’s the most creative hobby I have! I do have severe arthritis, but my hands and my “foot pedal” foot are in great shape! i sew every day. Thank you for the inspirations.
