Pat Sloan's Farmer's Market Sew Along

Ready to make this “Farmer’s Market” quilt and make some new online quilting friends in the process? Pat makes it easy to join up and share your quilt’s progress through her Facebook group. Best of all, when you buy Pat’s book Teach Me to Appliqué—which includes the “Farmer’s Market” quilt pattern—you’ll learn her easy fusible-appliqué technique as you make each block. By the time you sew your final block, you’ll be a pro!

Sewing block #1 starts on Wednesday, August 12. Here’s how to join:

STEP 1: Get your copy of Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Appliqué. Purchase a copy from Pat here and she’ll autograph it for you! Or, you can pick it up at your local quilt shop or purchase a print or eBook copy at

STEP 2: Once you have your book in hand (or on screen), start gathering your fabrics! Pat says, “I’d love for you to make this quilt your own using your very favorite fabrics. How about using some of your precious scraps for the appliqué, the ones you’ve saved for something special? A unique fabric for the apple or those wee scraps for the leaves?”

STEP 3: Meet virtually on the 2nd Wednesday of each month to start the next block. The first block to make is the squash block at the top left of the quilt.

Never done fusible appliqué? Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Appliqué will guide you step by step. You don’t have to settle for fusible appliqué that feels stiff as a board; with this technique your appliqué will feel soft and cuddly—just like a quilt should feel.

Pat’s spent years refining her approach, and you’ll be amazed at how quick and easy her “doughnut” method is to master. Learn all about it in Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Appliqué.
