Sew Along with Pat Sloan and Wendy Sheppard

February 14, 2023

A little over a year ago the Virginia Quilt museum shared a photo of the Mary Spitzer Etter quilt at Instagram. Immediately Wendy Sheppard and Pat Sloan were texting each other that they loved the quilt, which lead to, don't you think it would make a great Quilt along? Both Wendy and Pat are long time Virginians.

About a year ago they wrote to the Executive Director of the Virginia Quilt museum, Alicia Thomas, to propose doing a quilt along with the pattern. She said 'yes'!

Wendy has re-created the pattern from photos of the original quilt and has called it 'Harrisonburg' for the location of the Virginia Quilt Museum. She is using all her navy and cream scraps for a stunning scrappy version like the original. Pat is going to sew along during the quilt along using her Benartex fabric, Sleepover. Both are using their beautiful Aurifil thread collections.

There is an immediate digital download at the museum, all proceeds go directly to support the museum.  A printed patterns  will also be available soon.

Get your pattern, the Quilt along starts on Valentines day Feb 14 and runs until April 11, 2023. Sewing one row of blocks a week, then working on the border.
