Christmas Countdown! Day Five

So many of the quilts I have made were designed or inspired by Pat Sloan. 
I will have to do a post on those soon! 
This one is a favorite:
I Believe by Pat Sloan from the book Folksy Favorites.
The quilt was finished in 2010, measures 66" x 85"

There's that Thimbleberries holly toile again!!
I did a little switcheroo on the bottom right corner block by adapting a design from Pat's book Quilt the Seasons to make the bottom right corner block.

There are lots of embellishments on the quilt: button eyes and rick rack icing.

I love the cardinal--so cute!
I think this block would make a cute wall hanging.

Yoyos on the tree--yep--more holly toile.

 Rick rack stems on the peppermints and candy canes block.


  1. Oh just so precious! I love that yo-yoed tree! The whole quilt is wonderful! Hugs, Julierose

  2. Pat brought this quilt in two color ways for us to see when I took a class from her last summer. Both were stunning to see in person. Yours is just as stunning! Thanks for showing!

  3. What a sweet quilt. I bet it was fun to make.

  4. What a great quilt! I'm enjoying all of these posts, by the way. Love it!

  5. Love the "I Believe" quilt. I wonder if I have the pattern. I have several of Pat Sloan's patterns. My daughter would like the cardinal block.
