Taking care of business ....!

I'm back from a fabulous trip.  Market in Houston was a blast.  I enjoyed myself tremendously and have much to share with you, but first I want to tell you about Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.

She is so photogenic.


Isn't she sweet!  Edyta has to be one of the nicest designer I have ever met.

Wanting to blog about my first market experience, I asked if I could take pictures of her booth.


Love that pedal pusher car!


Her work is stunning!


I don't know how she finds the time to design so many beautiful fabric lines and make quilts!  She is such a prolific quilter!


I am just in awe of her work!


I hope you have enjoyed her booth as much as I have.

Now, remember how I said she was so sweet?  Well, she is also very generous.  She gave me the following fabrics to offer as a give away on my blog.


Aren't they gorgeous!  It is from her newest line, Jelly Bean Batiks, not even in stores yet.  It retails for $80.00!  So, leave me a comment by November 21, 2013 and you will be eligible for the draw.

In the mean time, pop on over to her blog and/or her Facebook and say hello!

Let the fun begin!

I attended a filming of The Quilt Show and she was one of the quilt celebrities on the show, what a sweet lady! Thanks to both you and her for the giveaway.

Gayle said...

I have thought of combining batiks with other cottons in my quilts like Edyta does, but the ones I find are SO bright and garish. Would love to win her collection so I can give it a try cuz I LOVE her quilts! Lucky you to meet her in person.....

Her booth is so amazing and that car is so fun. I do love the truck quilt, that would be fun to have in different seasons.

Would love to win that, thanks

Anna McCurdy said...

I have a friend who first introduced me to Edyta's laundry quilts- very nice designs and what a lovely thing for her to do to give you fabric to share.
I love pink and I love batiks so you have me drooling Carole.
It looks like you had a grand time at Quilt Market.
Regards from Alberta,
Anna

Kaaren said...

WIsh I could have been there with you, Carole. Edyta is one of my favorite designers and her style is so recognizable.

I think she was the innovator of the laser pre-cut fusible shapes for machine applique.

I'd love to win the bundle of her fabrics. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

Diane Courteau said...

Thanks for sharing, Carole.
I have a few of her books and I love her work.

Love to Applique said...

Thank u Carole for the chance to win these beautiful fabrics.

TLC said...

I LOVE all things Edyta! Did you get a clue as to when the car quilt pattern will be available??

Quiltsmiles said...

Lucy you to meet Edyta! Her style is sew unique and the colors of her lines so rich in both color and style. Great giveaway, thanks for the chance. Jane

Gypsy Quilter said...

Edyta's work is indeed lovely. Such a talented lady and so thoughtful to offer a door prize for those of us who could not attend. The fabrics are yummy, count me in.

mary said...

beautiful fabrics from edyta and I agree saw her at houston- she is gracious, lovely and talented but a real person!! mary in autin

Thimbleanna said...

YAY! You're back! Let the quilt market reports begin!!!! ;-D

Isn't Edyta's work amazing??? She must have some little fairies at her house to get so much done between markets. I've seen some of her new quilts from market reports and they're just beautiful. Your picture is the first I've seen of that umbrella quilt though -- it looks beautiful too!

I always hear people say they don't like batiks. I would think Edyta would change their minds!
