To the Moon and Back with HeatnBond

pat sloan heat n bond

I am ALWAYS excited to share a fusible applique project with you!

My tool of choice for many years has been Heat n Bond Lite. It is dependable and I use it exclusively for all my applique and all my workshops that I teach.

PAT SLOAN TO THE MOON COLLAGE

I designed “I love you to the Moon and Back” for my husband.. mushy eh?

This quilts has both full fusible applique and the cut away method. You can see that when I cut away, there is just a RIM of fusible that acts as a basting line for my stitching. This way my LARGE shapes are always soft!

My quilt “Flirt” is hanging in the CHA Booth this winter… I can’t wait to see the photos of the booth, I know it is going to be fantastic!!  I thought you might like to see how this quilt developed. I used a charm pack + more yardage. Some rick rack and some Heat n Bond lite brings it together!

Heat n Bond lite is so wonderful to work with. I can blanket stitch and it does not gum up AT ALL!

It’s not too late to make a little table runner!

Let’s see what you need…

Therm O Web’s Heat n Bond Fusible Fleece is perfect for table runners.

I find my projects stay very flat and I only do a minimum amount of quilting, if any to the final runner.

For mine I am using wool felt for the words, but cotton is just fine!

Print off the shapes and trace.

At this time you could trace these onto Heat n Bond Lite and fuse your cotton or felt to make it faster.

Layout your word then stitch!

Meet Me Under the Apple Tree and Bring Your Bike!

Right before the Quilting trade show we do a LOT of long hours sewing up goodies for the booths.

This Fall I provided quilts for the Therm O Web booth from my new 9 block series called ‘Red Apple Lane’

The first block I did as a single quilt is “Meet me Under the Apple Tree”.  I loved designing this block and Used Heat n Bond Lite for all the applique.

In the middle I used the Therm O Web’s Fusible Fleece. It is fantastic for small quilts as they will lay very flat.

I also made a single quilt from “Bring your Bike”.

Isn’t this fun?

Pat Sloan Pear-a-Licious Applique

I’m so excited that it is FALL!  Living in Northern Virginia my  Summer and Fall tend to blend back and forth into each other.  It’s cool.. then it’s hot… but September still means a change of season to me even if I’m wearing shorts and sandals!

My Pear-a-Licious pattern is a fun way to use up SCRAPS!

Pull light color 2.5″ squares for the background.

A selection of the same size in your border color.

Then a pile in green/yellow and orange.

My go to product for fusible applique is Heat n Bond Lite.

Pat Sloan .. A Quick pick me Up project … less than 30 min for a redo!

It’s time for new placemats! Which is the quickest way to freshen up your table.

And I LOVE making them as it’s INSTANT gratification

For each placemat you will need

11″ x 15″ of Heat n Bond fleece.. extra high loft is nice!

11.5″ x 31″ of fabric

Increase amounts for more placemats!

Ready to sew!

Lay the fleece, fusible side facing the back of one rectangle

Place the other rectangle on top and steam to fuse

Now layer the fused piece and the unfused,

right sides together

find some pins

and a matching thread color. This is Aurifil 50wt

Leave an opening about 3″ to 4″ wide on one side for turning

Sew all around and trim the corners so they turn nicer

Turn the placemat right sides out

Press

Using my walking foot or even feed foot

I sewed around the outside.

The I stitched straight lines about 1.5″ apart.

Set the table for a whole new look!

This really can be done in about 30 minutes for several placemat.

Give it a try!

Pat Sloan .. my new quilt using Heat n Bond Lite

The month of May brought me to the International Quilt Market, the spring trade show for the quilt industry. This spring we were in Kansas City Mo.

I was releasing a new line of fabric with Moda called “Eat your Fruits and Veggies”..  a new series of applique patterns with Bigfork Bay Cotton company called “Red Apple Lane”, plus 2 new thread kits from Aurifil. It was a busy time!

Here I am next to my new quilt pattern called “Red Apple Lane”. Which is actually 9 patterns you can put into one quilt, or use as singles.  All appliqued with Heat n Bond Lite, my favorite!

My section of this shared booth is on the left

Here is the full quilt… the first block is the Apple tree.

Then we go around the quilt clock wise with the canning jars

Here I am with the Director of Marketing at Bigfork, my buddy Traci Marvel!

And I was doing the embroidery on the quilt on the drive TO Kansas City… nothing like the last minute touches!
