Fabulous quilt designer Pat Sloan has put forth an OP Challenge.

What’s an OP? Orange Pile! Your pile of orange fabric from your stash! How fun.

Pat has already started putting up some notes for quilters who are participating in the challenge. If you’d like to join in the fun and “orange along,” just click the OP logo in the sidebar for all the information.

As part of the OP Challenge, Pat is hosting a virtual weekend retreat from Friday, February 20, through Sunday, February 22. There’ll be a blog hop with prize giveaways, a free block pattern, photos of work in progress, and a tutorial. It should be great fun, as it seems Pat really knows how to throw a party! I’ll be one of the bloggers on the hop and I’m already planning my prize giveaway.

    Love your orange fabrics. I am working on my quilt too.

    Several years ago, I took a class of yours @ TurkeyTracks quilt shop in NewCastle, Va. You taught us Applique and we made a small patched quilt from scraps. You also taught us to take color OUT of fabric by using bleach water. You wore a darling old style apron made from fabric that looked like l950’s draper. I remember, there we no “ties”, but you slipped it over your head and the wide straps crossed in the back. You said to look lovely while you quilted. I have looked everywhere for an apron pattern like your. Do you have that pattern for sale? How can I find it.

    Thanks for your attention,
