Welcome

Hello and welcome to Laundry Basket Quilts Blog. We have experienced quite a bit of winter here in Michigan lately and while we could say enough with the snow, we didn’t – we embraced the winter wonderland with our newest collection of fabrics “Believe” available in stores July 2011 that reflects some of the beautiful silhouettes that Mother Nature brings! Along with new fabrics we always have new quilts, here are some of my newest patterns which will be available along with the fabrics.

Frosty Window

Frosty Window – I love this two color quilt simple design based on 1.5″ blue strips was a delight to make! The light background “Believe” fabric has wonderful images and words that bring warmth to this quilt.

Sweet Mint

Sweet Mint uses every fabric from the “Believe” collection, I love the fun scrappy look of this quilt just as much as I like sweets, candy canes and mints are my favorites!

Red for Valentine's Day

Eight weeks ago I planted the bulb for this flower, and what a gift I got for Valentine’s Day – Happy Valentine’s day to all you sweethearts out there!

Fabrics Swatches Arrived!

Spring must be right around the corner, my new Spring 2011 Collection has just arrived and I love getting that little UPS Box – I’m in for an enjoyable afternoon!
Come visit again!

    Wow – what awesome quilts. Welcome to blogland. If you post like you quilt, we’ll all be put to shame. 🙂

  10. Staci says:

    So glad you started a blog! I recently ordered your Friendship Strips and Scraps book and can hardly wait for it to arrive!

  11. Luned says:

    Love the look of the blues and creams in both those quilts.
    I bought your book Friendship Strips recently and loved the look of the Farmhouse quilt so much I bought the kit from your website (which arrived here in the UK really quicklyless than a week – thank you). It’s wonderful – so well packed and labelled! I’ve got a few days holiday the week after next so I’m saving it as a treat to start then, but I keep unpacking it and stroking the fabric. Just to get familiar with it you know…;) I’m looking out for a full bundle of Bon Voyage now, as I just know I’ll want to use more of it.

  12. Carol Schon says:

    As I’ve been following the Moda pillow blog hop, I was surprised to not see your name, since I well know you design for Moda. …so, I will definitely be following your blog and looking forward to staying in touch. I’m not sure how you are going to fit another thing into your busy schedule, but I’m glad you are doing this!

  13. Liz S. says:

    Edyta,
    I just finished my “mountain top” with friendship triangles that we exchanged at Kathy’s shop, Fabric, Quilt, Scissors in New Era, MI. My sister has completed one too! We missed you at the exchange evening, but we enjoyed the quilts that you generously gave Kathy to show…
    My next project of yours, will probably be the spools quilt made out of friendship strips. Love your stuff!
    Sincerely,
    Liz

  14. janan says:

    Edyta, I LOVE your quilts and all your fabrics! Such talent!
    The colors are amazing! Just read about you in American Patchwork!
    Your quilts are fabulous!

  15. Ann says:

    WOW – what a welcome – look at all the Moda heavy hitters who commented on your blog! I loved the vibe in your feature in APQ – what a marvelous environment you created! I’m looking forward to following your blog.

  16. Ginny Worden says:

    Oh my goodness, I am so excited that you have a blog. I love your stuff, looking forward to following your quilting adventures.

  17. pam says:

    Dear Edyta! Welcome to blog land! Your fabrics and quilts and books are some of my very favorite. I am making a wedding quilt from Close to my Heart in the pinks and browns…can’t wait to give it to them! Loved seeing you on the Quilt Show recently…and your daughter’s prom dress was Project Runway worthy! Adorable! Pam in Chico

  18. Janet Howse says:

    Hooray Edyta finally has a blog! It has been fun to watch as you evolve and grow in the quilting world. I loved your episode on the “Quilt Show”. Keep up the good work!

  19. Marlene Schomaker says:

    So happy to see Edyta join the blog world. I love seeing and hearing what she is up to and if she will be in my neighborhood. (Only one week before she visits Decker, MI & we will be having a strip exchange.) I am so excited about all of the “exchanges” she has inspired! Can hardly wait for more postings on the blog….

  20. Beverly McCulty says:

    We had a great time on the cruise. Just loved your class. Your quiltd are so beautiful.
    You make everything so easy.BEV

  21. Sheri Forrester says:

    So nice to see you have a blog now! I love your quilts and patterns! Now will be adding fabrics!

  22. Kristyne says:

    Hi Edyta! You might not remember me, but we met at Market in Houston. I asked how to pronounce your name and I told you my husband was Polish. You convincingly persuaded me to visit Poland sooner than later because the country is changing so fast. (We’re planning a trip for next year!)

    Anyhow, I’m looking forward to your pillow talk tomorrow (again, your talk at Market was my favorite – so personal and heartwarming). You tell a beautiful story. Thanks for sharing.

    Good luck with your blog! (I just started one myself – I think you’d find my first post about my name a little entertaining. 🙂

    best regards.

  23. Doug Leko says:

    Edyta, I am so happy you have a blog now!
    Look forward to seeing you at market!
    Doug

  24. Kim says:

    Sadly, looks like Michigan is going to get some more snow today…I know enough already but are too here in NY. Oh well it will keep me at my machine a bit longer to create a few more quilts :0).
    Welcome to blogland and I wish you continued success.
    Can’t wait to see what goodies will come our way from that little UPS box :0).

    Happy sewing

  25. Billie K says:

  26. Kathy B says:

    I got my “Tree Farm” top done. I love it. Excited for your pillow talk tomorrow

  27. I would love to see a photo of the quilt in your banner at the top of your blog, it’s beautiful! I noticed you also used it in the background of the pillow you made from grandma’s old quilt. Perhaps you could also tell us something about the quilt and the fabrics used. Thanks!

  28. Melanie says:

    That’s such a beautiful story! I almost cried reading it. It sure is something to heat how everyone got started quilting. Thank you for sharing your story. Your pillow is really pretty and how nice to have such a special quilt tucked inside.

  29. jane resko says:

    I loved the story of your husband’s grandmother’s quilt and how you took a part of your’s and put in remain’s of grandma’s inside.What wonderful memory’s to lay your weary head down on.As a quilter you know every stitch is made with love and a million thought’s of family member’s . There is a whole life story in our quilt’s. Each one wrap’s you in the warmth of our love.

  30. Carol says:

    Looking forward to Saturday and seeing you in Decker, MI. Your work is just wonderful. You certainly are arising “sitar” in the quilting world. Will have two of your books for you to autograph. Welcome to blogging!

  31. Krista Hohl says:

    Edyta!
    Thank you so much for braving the winter weather this morning & taking a tripto the middle of the thumb! What an amazing presentation. Your talents are a true gift from god. You are an artist with fabric. I was really blessed to see your work. By quilting sisters & I learned alot of new tips & look forward to purchasing your new book & fabrics. Thank you again for a wonderful day!! Krista Hohl

  32. Mo Pfister says:

    I want to that you SO much for helping me with my quilting dilemma. I have gotten back on track and feel like I will have the beautiful Bon Voyage piece completed in no time at all. I have also traced Hop To It out on freezer paper but am unsure if I will needle turn or use the fusible method. It is for my mother-in-law. Her name is Bunny. 🙂 PERFECT!

  33. Cathie Donahay says:

    OMG!!! I love love love everything what you have done. Keep up! Thank you so much for sharing. Have a great sewing day! Cathie

    Reasons For Quilts to my collection.

  35. Nancy G. says:

    Thank you!

  45. Susan S says:

    I enjoyed your photos of the family and snow…. I, too, like Polish stoneware Merry Chrsitmas!

  46. Kathy Bonafede in Frederick, Colorado says:

    I absolutely love all of your quilts and their patterns. My wish is to be able to collect fabrics (as if I don’t already have a huge stash) and to quilt 12 hours a day, interspersed with family (5 adult children, and 9 grandchildren) at family dinners which my attorney husband cooks–because he loves to cook. I just love being a homebody and making a beautiful space for us to live and entertain. I collect quilting books, and have two entire bookshelves with my quilting books, which I regularly pull off the shelves to inspire me.
