What a Novel Idea by Pat Sloan (Guest Post)

This is a guest post written by the super talented Pat Sloan, of...all things Pat Sloan (and yes, there's a lot!)!

When I see a novelty fabric on the shelf that makes my heart go pitty patter... and I look to see who made it, it is often an amazing Robert Kaufman print! And when I got ready to write my book I dug through my things and found a dizzing array of lovelies to choose from.

I'm SO inspired by novelties with fabulous colors and detail, this grouping makes my heart sing! I really do need to make something with with the lady fabric... and the chickens.. yes.. they may even go in the same quilt.. but don't hold me to that!

One of the neat-o things about a novelty is that you can make a LOT of guy quilts with them... like this sail boat...

or the Trains.. although I did find the lady in the white dress ever so lovely... now I want to buy a white dress, big hat and go on a week long train vacation... novelty prints do that to me.

Doggie Love can go both ways.. girls and boys .. and I do believe it may be one of my favorite quilts  in the book! You can use directional or tossed fabrics on this one!

And do NOT forget the sweets... cupcakes and candies mix very nicely in this quilt!
