Our girls, Marilyn and Neppie, made it safely to Houston and set up a beautiful booth display. Here you can see our most popular pattern, Basket Lattice, which looks great with batik jelly rolls, and just as good in reproductions or daiwabos. Amish with a Twist is on the table, and we are offering it as a Block of the Month or as a complete kit.
One whole section of our booth was Laundry Basket Quilts from Edyta Sitar. We have made quite a few of Edyta's quilts, and she loaned us her latest creations. Some were made from her newest fabric, Dancind in the Rain cottons and batilks. Others feature her next collection, Paint Box, which is due in April.
Edyta has pioneered working with Silhouettes, which are prefused and precut shapes that make it so easy to get a complicated quilt done relatively quickly. We used Silhouettes on her Spring Bouquet quilt, shown at the bottom of this post.
