About Pat

Pat Sloan: About The Voice of Quilting

Pat sloan hat
I have a passion for creating and quilts are my medium.

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 20 years. But I made my first 'first quilt' way before that! CLICK HERE to read about it

I soon started teaching and then I decided to put my ideas into patterns.

Pat and gregg sloan
I run my own design business called Pat Sloan & Company with my husband Gregg (the Shipping Department). We are  located in Fairfax County, Virginia.

I start out my designs by drawing them in note pads

Then I move them into the computer.

What I have found is that I really enjoy sharing what I do. I love to travel to talk and teach from my quilt designs. And I really love to see what other quilters do with my patterns. The best part is traveling around the country meeting you and watching what you do with my designs in a workshop! (CLICK HERE to have me come visit you!)

The best way to see my work is to CLICK HERE and look around.  I have books, patterns and my fabric. One day I'll have a pretty gallery page... one... day...

In addition to publishing my own patterns, I design patterns for all the major quilt magazines. Like American Patchwork & Quilting, McCall's Quilting, McCall's Quick Quilts, Quilters World, Quilting Arts, and the Fons and Porter magazines.
