I am proud to say that I now call Edyta Sitar – the designer and owner of Laundry Basket Quilts – a friend. She is not only the nicest, kindest, gentlest soul you will ever want to meet – she is a natural born teacher! She always thinks outside of the box and comes up with ways for beginners to create difficult patterns.
Her latest applique quilt pattern consists of 25 – 12″ blocks. It is just screaming to be a new block (or two blocks) of the month. Edyta gives instructions for three different methods. Your students can try them all, and then choose the method they like best to complete the quilt.
And consider batiks – they have a tight weave so there is little fraying. They are easy to turn, mix well with other fabrics, and add depth and texture to any quilt. You don’t have to finish the whole quilt! Premier a block or two on the same day every month – and your customers will love the anticipation!
Many of you are looking for demos and Jolene’s Star fits the bill. The pattern includes two sizes – a table topper and a quilt. The table topper is perfect for a class – smaller to get everyone comfortable with the techniques.
It is scrappy and fun!
This Dresden Plate quilt is just adorable – bright and happy. And is so simple – as in all of Edyta’ s patterns – they just look difficult until she does her magic!
This applique quilt consists of four blocks that are absolutely beautiful – and finishes to 59″! You can also buy a template for all of the pieces to make it even easier to create beautiful results.
I am a little prejudice, but everything she designs is fresh and new! I love her sense of style. Enjoy the rest of her spring offerings as well. She will be demonstrating and sharing her techniques at the Checker Open House on August 25th. Come meet her.
