For my July Vacation time block I decided to have some FUN with the name!! 'The Hot Dog Stand'... seriously how can a vacation go by without having one? When you go download the pattern and watch my video I'll tell you how I like to take mine... but there is another way! Here is the wonderful menu at the Hot Dog Stand on the last ship I was on... we may have tried all these by the end of the 7 days... wink! So what is the OTHER way I like to eat a hot dog?

You know how I LOVE the therm-o-web company and products and I found out they have a great sale, 25% off and free shipping on $30.00 or more, excellent!

It comes in tubes, sheets that run through... Continue reading

Wonderful Roxanna! Enjoy my book!
I want to show you one step in my soft and easy fusible applique! The tracing and cutting out makes a HUGE difference in how you applique feels. Let me show you. Here is my tool box Heat n Bond LITE Havel Scissors and a Pen! I'm tracing a shape from my Teach me Fusible Applique Book The strawberry is a great one to start with. Trace the shape with your pen. Now I'll cut around the shape so I can handle it. Don't get too close to the drawn line, leave yourself some room around it. I cut through... Continue reading

When you buy your classes and craftsy goodies through my reviews it helps pay for all the free things I offer! What I've done is list the current Class review AND recommendation here .. take a look, I hope you find something you love! And next time you are... Continue reading

Many of you have done freemotion quilting and you are ready to add new shapes and styles to your toolbox. It's great to get used to a comfortable pattern, but there are so many more easy options for you. My really good friend Debby... Continue reading

For the quilt along, the patterns will be available for FREE download each month around the 15th on the Fat Quarter Shop blog. I had a TON of fun making the apron with... Continue reading

Janet that is an awesome memory!
Monique I'm sorry about that Because the EU has instituted such restrictive VAT taxes, I can no longer sell to EU countries as it's cost prohibitive for me to follow the fax guidelines I suggest you purchase the pattern via a store that sells over seas and they will mail it. http://www.homesteadhearth.com/shop/c/p/The-Sweet-Life-pattern-x5569115.htm Sorry your shops have not been buying my fabric. If you ask them and tell them you want it, then that will spur then on.. please do that ok? be sure you sign up for my newsletter at http://mad.ly/signups/99771/join and article subscription http://mad.ly/signups/126175/join and join my Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/QuiltWithPatSloan/
