17 fun new stitcheries to sew, switch, and swap – with Gail Pan! (+ giveaway!)

Sew switchable, swappable stitcheries with the bestselling author of the “Patchwork Loves Embroidery” series!

Changing Seasons

Gail Pan’s sweet and sentimental embroideries take on a delightful twist in her new book Changing Seasons. Small patchwork quilts include spaces to spotlight interchangeable embroidery panels, making it easy to replace one pretty piece for another to reflect the time of year.

From Changing Seasons
Choose the embroidery you want to display depending on your mood that day!

Projects inspired by seasons, holidays, celebrations, and the comforts of home mean there’s always a beautiful stitchery to display. In addition to small quilts and framed art, Gail includes seven embroidered banners for all kinds of occasions—they’ll make even ordinary days special.

Celebration Banner
One of seven celebration banners you’ll find in the book.

We asked Gail a few questions about her stitching life; read on for her answers!


Gail PanST!: This is your fourth book with Martingale—what inspired you to write Changing Seasons?

Gail: Martingale’s Publisher and Chief Visionary Officer, Jennifer Keltner, put the idea in my head and I ran with it. Once I got started there was no stopping! Words are great to put on embroidery projects, and I wanted to make things that would inspire and celebrate life.

ST!: What’s your typical process for designing, and where do you find your inspiration?

Gail: I usually start sketching things, anything. But sometimes I have a light-bulb moment when I am out and about.

As the Seasons Change
As the Seasons Change—stitch a swappable little quilt for spring, summer, fall, and winter.

ST!: It’s obvious that you have a love of embroidery; what draws you to it?

Gail: It’s nice to be able to create a lovely picture with thread. It’s portable too—I take it everywhere.

ST!: What do you love most about creating with thread and fabric?

Gail: The finish! I get so excited when I can look back and see what I’ve created.

Give Thanks
Give Thanks

ST!: Finish these sentences for us!

If I had a three-word stitching mantra, it would be: Keep on stitching.

My best tip for new stitchers is: Take it slow. It’s not a race and you want to enjoy the process.

Before I begin a project, I must have: All my threads ready to go.

If I had a sewing superpower, it would be: Binding in about a quarter of the time it takes me!

Especially loved crewel, made a LOT of those small Jiffy kits and some original things. But I don’t know that I’d consider myself an expert – I’m sure there is still lots to learn. It’s very relaxing and I love the finished product! Probably why my favorite quilts are appliqued…more hand stitchery!

  • I am an expert in embroidery. My mother started me off on tea towels when I was 9 years old. I embroidered and beaded a bodice (front and back) and the very long train from my young friends wedding dress. Erica Wilson is my hero. I admired my grandmother’s dollies when I was 3 and remember asking her to show me how she got so many colors on the leaves. She blended several threads together to do the needle work. I told her someday I would make beautiful embroidery as well. I told my sister when I was in the 7th grade that I was going to make beautiful quilts like were in a crafting magazine I choose from "free" magazine day in my English class. I’ve done both and have mastered them. I hope my late grand mother and departed mother smile down when they check in on me.

    —Eileen Maher on April 19, 2019
  • I use to do embroidery and counted cross stitch. I was pretty good at it and won many blue ribbons at the state fair. Sadly, today I can’t do hand embroidery because of arthritis in my hands. I have been doing machine embroidery and I do get satisfaction when the project is done. I am working on a quilt for my daughter that all the blocks were embroidered on my Husqvarna Designer Epic and I am now sewing the blocks together to finish the quilt top.

    —Terri D'Ambrosio on April 19, 2019
  • I enjoy embroidery and handwork. I would say I do intermediate embroidery.
    I enjoy decorating by the seasons so this book is right down my alley.

    —Karen in Ohio on April 19, 2019
  • Way back in the "good ol’ days" up in the snow country our mom’s taught us all "that handwork stuff" to keep us of trouble when the snow got so deep you’d get lost walking to school 🙂 From doing stamped embroidery dresser-scarves and pillowcases I progressed to needlepoint and petite-point. Know days quilting and knitting take up most of my time but a fun diversion can be found with needle, floss, and muslin fabric 🙂 There’s just something satisfying about handwork.

  • Very much a beginner. Recently discovered redwork embroidery which appeals to me as it’s as simple or complicated as embroiderer wishes. Think I prefer more primitive designs – not too cute. Also enjoy combining embroidery, applique and patchwork.

    —Barb K on April 19, 2019
  • I’m a beginner, but would like to learn more. My 95-year-old friend in a nursing home is still doing embroidery! Her hands are misshapen by arthritis. She gives me hope! I think that I will not always be able to make quilts and something smaller like embroidery will keep me happily stitching to the end of my life!

About 7 years ago I had a great idea to make a Noah’s ark quilt for my sweethearts granddaughter. 12 emb.blocks with pairs of animals and one large center block of the animal loaded boat. Overwhelmed, I taught him a few basic stitches and he did half. Recently I made a pattern transfer of an old photo with my father and his 4 siblings. Using the transfer I embroidered a redwork pillow cover for my Aunt.
