She is as cute as her quilt designs. And a patient, attentive teacher.
This is the quilt we worked on. The pattern is called “Mocha Stars” and is found in her Simple Comforts book. We had so much fun! Learned new invisible applique techniques, stem making tips, etc., etc. …..
This is my progress. First time I've used batiks with my other fabrics.
After I zigzag around the star points and make a few more leaves, stems and some flowers, I can sew the halves together to make this into a pillow rather than a quilt.
Unfortunately I was unable to attend the guild meeting the following day but have seen pictures of her trunk show. All beautiful.
A few years ago I met one of my other quilt heroes, Jo Morton, at one of her needle-turn applique workshops. Now I want to meet Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts. Someday!!!!! Somehow!!!!!
Until next time, may your bobbins always be full.
