Pat was one very busy woman at Quilt Market. Not only was she autographing her book but she was also lecturing about The Cutting EDGE rulers and Rotary Cutter from Sullivans. The lecture was great and I was thrilled to be getting so many photos. All of which had Pat with her mouth open or sideways as she lectured. So here are the photos I took that explains how Sullivans has an EDGE on quilting rulers.
This is Pat Sloan, as if I even needed to tell you her name. By the way, if you do not know who Pat Sloan is, I'm sorry to say you just might need to get out a little more....just a wee bit :) Pat was autographing her book, "Quilt the Seasons" at the Checker Distributors Booth at Quilt Market. It is tough pulling myself away from the Checker Distributors Authors stand. I'm always there ready to hear their guests talk about the latest products and books. I'm actually thinking of wearing a disguise in Houston for Fall Quilt Market so they won't tire of me...LOL.
Quilt the Seasons is a wonderful book with so many great projects that your home is guaranteed to be festive for all seasons. The list of projects include quilts, table toppers, and wall hangings but we all know the patterns can be used for any project from Seasonal Clothing to Scrapbook page designs. (I love using the fun designs for page layouts when Scrapbooking....it gives new meaning to paper piecing!!)
The Cutting Edge rulers have a diamond carbide EDGE (650 grit...as if I know what that means:) that keeps your rotary blade sharp while you work.
Each person who attended the lecture received a.....well....a business card....as a promissory note to get a ruler to demo at their shops. Unfortunately by the time I got to their booth to turn in my promissory note all of the rulers were gone. I was able to use The Cutting Edge Rulers and Rotary Cutter at their booth. Definitely innovative in the age of conservation. Longer lasting rotary blades is definitely an excellent way to save more money in the long run.Sullivans USA has all the information about their rulers right on their website. Click here for more information. One of the "frustrating" things about going to Market is almost everything that is shown is on it's way to market and not always available to order. I Have A Notion will carry the rulers just as soon as they become available....and I hear that will be soon!!!
Although Pat is working her bootay' off while at Market she was kind enough to pose for a photo with me. I honestly have no idea how Pat Sloan manages to publish books & patterns, participate in Twitter, Facebook, Blogging, and maintain a website, host Creative Talk Radio....oh yeah....did I mention she also has this thread kit and this thread kit with Aurifil? I would need roller skates to keep up with her....and a full time staff with two nannies too!!
I'm sure you all know that I took good care of you....yes I got an Autographed copy of Quilt the Seasons Book 2 by Pat Sloan. Although it is killing me to give it away, I know it will go to a good home. Will it be your home? Will your Seasons be festive? We'll find out on the evening of Friday Aug. 6th. Just leave a comment telling me what adding some Seasonal fun projects to your home will mean to you. Non-replay bloggers need to leave their e-mail address to qualify.
