Welcome Everyone to Day 9 of the 
Quilt Designer Holiday Blog Hop!  

I can not believe it is already day 9 of the hop!  It is flying by!  A big Thank you to Lynda for the adorable snowman project.  It was so cute!  All the projects have been amazing!  AND - the recipes have already been tested my some blog followers!  I have heard "good feedback" from the recipes ~ so get out those baking pans and whip up a batch just in time for the Holidays!  Also - there will be a "revised" cookie recipe for Lisa's cookies.  One key ingredient got overlooked...  It is missing 1/4 cup dark molasses.  So keep your eye out for the "revised" recipe card shortly!

Our ninth Designer is 
Jan Patek from 
Hometown * Cameron, MO


Her quilt designs will warm your heart.... as well as your home!

I'm so excited to introduce to you our next designer.  I know you all know her ~ but she still deserves much recognition as she has paved the way for many of us quilt designers!  
Her name is Jan Patek and she just "ROCKS"!  

For more than 20 years, Jan Patek has been sharing her talents with each of us. She has also been providing us with the most unique primitive folk art quilt designs in book and pattern form.  And if those quilt designs weren't enough for us - we are so fortunate to be able to purchase those amazing fabrics that she uses through her line of fabric(s) from Moda!!!  Sweet!  Her fabric lines are always stunning!  You sure can tell that her designs & fabric lines are inspired by her country, home and her beautiful family!

 Jan has a passion for creating and loves sharing her creativity with others.  She creates some of the most amazing block of the month quilts and hand appliqued designs around.  
Each of quilts she creates are a story of her life, her experiences, and her soul.  Her quilt designs will truly warm your heart and touch your soul!  
I remember reading somewhere that she doesn't like to make quilts and put them in a closet.  So ~ for those of you who have made a quilt of hers... You better showcase it up on the wall or even better, snuggle up with it while checking out her fun website! ~ It is overflowing with creative outlets... You could join one of her fantastic quilt clubs, browse through her book collection... snatch up a cool quilt kit (with her line of fabrics) or just simply be inspired by her work!  

Thanks Jan for all that you have done & shared with us over the years!  We can't get enough of it!  We look forward to many more amazing years of your fab*u*lous designs!!!  
Off to her blog....!!!!
