Pat Sloan's New Book Tour
Pat Sloan's Holiday Book Tour!
This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered and congratuations to Robin J. who is the winner of a copy of Pat Sloan's new book!
Come back soon for more FAB fun and check out our books and patterns via the links you'll find… well… pretty much all over this site!
If you’ve taken one of our quilting classes, you know we love these little mats cum mini quilts. They are in the Goldilocks Zone of quilting projects providing you with a way to try out a quilting technique or pattern without committing to a full-size quilt, but you still have something FAB and useable when you are finished. Hang them on the wall or use them as… well… table mats! Use them as the base for your centerpiece or as a resting place for a vase of flowers that you definitely did not pick from the neighbor’s rose bushes that are growing out into the alley that they will never miss because they don’t take care of them or ever come out to look at them or smell them and they are just going to go to waste back there so why shouldn’t you enjoy them?!? *ahem* You get the idea; a little bit of gorgeousness that is both beautiful and useful for a relatively small time commitment. Moving on…
And y’all just KNOW that a book tour means giveaways and there are a couple of different giveaways you can enter to win.
First, we’re giving away a copy of Holiday Celebrations that you can win by leaving a comment right here on this blog post telling us what your favorite holiday is. Our giveaway ends on June 14, 2021, at 11:59pm PT. We will choose a random winner on June 15, 2021 and notify that person via email and here at the top of this post… so be sure to leave us your email so we can get ahold of you! Our giveaway is open to both US and international entries. US residents will receive a printed copy of the book and those outside the US will be sent a PDF of the book.
There are also wo big ol’ prize packs you can enter to win from Martingale until June 14 2021 on the Martingale website and on the Martingale Instagram page.
Make sure you take a minute (or several) to visit Pat’s blog to follow along the book tour (and get in on their giveaways too!). And, if you don’t win a copy, you can grab a copy of "Pat Sloan’s Holiday Celebrations" from your favorite quilt shop, or anywhere quilting books are sold including on our Amazon page! (Or download the eBook version of the book from ShopMartingale.com today!)
Here are all the folx on Pat’s book tour. Be sure to check out their interpretations of the FAB projects from Pat’s book to inspire your own projects.
We had a lot of fun creating the fabric for this project and we are so happy and honored that Pat included us in her tour. We hope those of you who are new to our piece of the Universe will stick around for a bit. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on the latest Shibaguyz news and explore our website for more articles, tutorials, our own books and patterns, and our growing product line of fabric and sashiko tools and notions. And, of course, y'all can find us on social media by clicking on those little icons below this post.
Until we see y'all on social media or in the virtual classroom…

My favorite holiday has to be Thanksgiving. The sun is so bright at this time of year in Ontario and the smell in the air is so fresh. The food on Thanksgiving Day is also a plus and just to be able to sit with family at this time is special.

I LOVE the Christmas holidays with all its colors and warmth. Reminds me of my family. Both my parents came from large families and during the holidays we would ALL get together. Talk about sardines! But Christmas always reminds me of those times. And I can't help but tell you how much I love your take on the X AND O block.
6/8/2021 04:57:58 am
My favorite holiday is still Easter for all the fresh soft Spring fabrics available after winter sewing. I’m fascinated with your take on X’s &O’s block and am imagining it in more calming soft colors.
6/8/2021 04:58:11 am
Love Halloween and Thanksgiving! Also enjoyed your take on the X's and O's quilt.
6/8/2021 04:58:34 am
If I say a different holiday from the other book tour entries, will my entry get kicked out? I think not. So instead of Christmas, I nominate Halloween as my favorite holiday. So there!
6/8/2021 04:59:53 am
Love your scrappy Hello, Luv! Xs and Os! Always hugs and kisses for my favorite holiday of Valentine's Day.

I love Valentine’s Day! It is like a secret treasure in your pocket because it arrives unexpectedly in the middle of random ordinary time, bursting with joy for all that we love—just like your amazing improvisational take on Pat’s X’s and O’s. I can’t wait to start stitching up those precious scraps I have been saving. Many thanks for the inspirational post.

Hi, loved the project your did from Pats. My favorite holiday is Christmas, ie. the real meaning of the season, not Santa…. During the year I make kids book pillows, buy books to match, along with some matching toys and occasionally a small kids quilt. I donate these to my local kids Christmas campaign for disadvantaged kids in the community. Love love doing this, a few of my themes have been Harry Potter, ballerina(complete with a ballerina barbie and a little tutu for the child), monkeys with monkey sock toy, construction, dinosaurs…. Quilt craft on!

Love your made fabric. Great option for Xs & Os! My favorite holiday to sew for is fall. We have lots of trees so I am drawn to fall colors and leaves.
6/8/2021 05:23:59 am
Hi there. I love how you have interpreted and handled this block. My favourite holiday has to be Christmas. We celebrate far less holiday occasions here in Scotland UK, than you do in the US, But I think Christmas would still be my favourite if there were all the other holidays to celebrate here.x
6/8/2021 05:24:57 am
My favorite holiday is Halloween! I used to work for a florist for years and we were very busy on holidays. Halloween we weren’t as busy. So I do Halloween over the top.
