Edyta has put together a lovely video to show even more of what her book has to offer
This book is a fantastic choice for every level of sewer with useful information to walk you through the project from color choice to block setting. Edyta even provides many suggestions in her personal choices of supplies taking the guesswork out of what makes the perfect quilt.
Edyta’s love for fabric began at a very young age – when she used her mother’s newly hung drapes to create her first fabric project! Fortunately for all of us, her mother recognized her passion for fabric and thus began the journey with fabric and sewing. Creating beautiful gowns ushered Edyta into creative textile design and established the building blocks which lead her into a quilting adventure.
Quilting has enabled Edyta to express herself; her designs are the avenue to release artistic passion! The combination of inspiration from nature, a love for fabric, a keen eye for color, and her family teachings blended into the recipe for developing a flourishing talent for designing quilts and quilting patterns.
“My children and my husband are my greatest motivation, providing the basis that you can accomplish anything you want if you just set your mind to it. Being able to do what I love and share this love with others is the greatest feeling and reward I could imagine! This is the Cinderella dream for me.”
As the owner and co-founder of her company, Laundry Basket Quilts, she has been published in magazines world-wide and her quilts have been honored through receiving numerous awards.
Edyta is proud to carry on her family tradition that fabrics and threads have seamlessly stitched together through the generations.

My favorite seasonal colors are shades of green. It’s the only color that transcends all seasons. I love the forest greens for winter, and sages for fall, the yellow greens for spring, and the limes and brights for summer. (Can you tell green is my favorite color?). Thanks for the fabulous prizes and a chance to win them.
