Pat's Bio - 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. A few years ago I started teaching and then I decided to put my ideas into patterns. I now 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 my favorite fabric company, P&B Textiles Also, I love working with the great people at my book publisher Leisure Arts, with whom I have done more than 15 books.
