Edyta Sitar’s newest book is scheduled for a November arrival – just in time for holiday open houses. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words and I just need to share the wealth! I just saw glimpses of the inside today.
Why not set up a display featuring the book, triangle papers, and of course, those beautiful blue fabrics!
California is obviously agreeing with her because Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts is designing a wide variety of projects – each with her classic style.
I love applique so this is definitely my favorite. Did you notice that the applique borders don’t meet at the corners? This gives you a little bit of a fudge factor so you can applique all of them before attaching it to the quilt. How portable is that??
No pictures yet, but the item numbers for the pre-packaged appliques are on the website. For those of you who have her latest blue line of fabrics, the following quilts are a great way to use up some scraps!
I love earth tones so these quilts spoke to me and show why Edyta is the queen of color! Once again, the appliques are available.
Need some instant gratification? Why not choose this darling design that is a perfect wall hanging or pillow.
