Plant a Garden with Edyta Sitar

It’s Sew Emma and Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts have combined forces in this new book – due to arrive this month.  Quilter’s Patch is a perfect choice for a series of classes.


The book is chock full of techniques that will improve your piecing skills and others that will have you thinking outside of the box!  I love quilts that are created from blocks – but the blocks are so well hidden that the quilt flows into an entire scene.  This quilt has taken that concept to a whole new level!

So why not plant your garden….one block at a time!

Triangles Couldn’t be Easier

Pre-cut fabrics have become the staple of every quilt shop – and anything that supports them is sure to be a best seller!

Enter Edyta Sitar.  She is known for her breathtaking color selections in scrappy quilts.  Just look at the cover of her book – Friendship Triangles.
Item #L11248  Retail $24.95

To make it easier to create this variety of fabrics, she is releasing triangle paper next month.  The papers are designed for 5″ and 10″ squares – and come in multiple sizes.  Each package includes 25 sheets.

The number of triangles created from a package depends on the size of the triangles.  For example, a package of 1 1/2″ finished triangle papers designed for five inch squares makes 200 triangles.
Item #LBQ-0523-X  Retail $6.00

The papers for ten inch squares makes 800!
Item #LBQ-0528-X  Retail $8.00

Visit our website to see all of the different sizes – and everything Edyta Sitar!  They are expected to arrive in April.

It’s Time to Plan the New Year

Calendars are a great gift!  We still have several in stock that would be great register displays.  Why not supply some special shop labels that include class dates and special events?  Participating in a shop hop?  Bringing in a national teacher?  Feature demo days?  Provide stickers that they can add to their calendar – talk about great customer service!  And don’t forget small business Saturday, National Quilt Day.

Edyta Sitar has a wonderful journal that includes calendars for 2015 through 2017.
