Round up of FREE Flag patterns & UFO commitment from Pat Sloan's Blog

Pat sloan UFO busting

*** UFO BUSTING ***

My word of the Year is to 'Be Intentional'

It is so fun to design a project for the Fat Quarter Shop's Button Club. I like to have the buttons sit on my desk for awhile, it' lets me find a fabric or a inspiration to start the pattern.  The purple and yellow were my inspiration and when i found the Tula Pink Monkey Wrench fabric, I had to do big flowers! It turned out so cute!
