Hello Friends, it’s been a looooong time since I last visited with you. Please forgive me for my absence. Life took a really hectic turn when I started having to play teacher earlier this year, and then, it seemed like the pace never let up due to one thing or another. I do hope you are well, and are enjoying the fall season. Can you believe 2020 is almost over?
Well, I am back today to celebrate Dear Friend Pat Sloan‘s new fabric release with Benartex, with my newest finished project. But first, have you see Pat’s Morrison Park fabrics?
Have you been following Pat’s Morrison Park Blog Tour?

The prints are sweet, adorable, and quite Liberty-like, and so cheerful and happy too — much like Pat herself! And these fabrics are in shops now!
There are so many prints I like from Morrison Park. But my favorite is actually this one! I am always on a hunt for a good background fabric that is interesting (not too loud, but not too dull), effective in highlighting other prints, and yet not overshadowed by the prints.
And with that I shall show you my quilt made with Morrison Park fabrics!
You can see that even the elephants have busted out from the zoo to celebrate Pat’s new fabric line! Let’s take a closer look at the elephants! You can see how well that background fabric plays with the other prints in the following pictures.
This quilt is actually made for one of my upcoming patterns called Stomping Ground. We are going through the final edits for the pattern as I write, and it will be ready within 7-10 days, if not sooner! Watch my Instagram feed. This is a Fat-Quarter friendly pattern — so, start collecting your favorite Morrison Park fat quarters. You can make the blocks with using a background fabric + 10 FQs.
While I haven’t used all the fabrics in the entire Morrison Park collection, you may click HERE to view all the fabrics!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Stomping Ground design in Pat’s Morrison Park fabrics!
