Dancing in the Rain

Silhouette Challenge Update

Thank you for all of the fantastic project photos you are sending to me made with the Fabric Silhouettes, I am truly enjoying your creativity! Please keep sending photos to my email edyta@laundrybasketquilts.com, I will collect all of them and create a post on the blog for everyone to enjoy next month. We will also have our drawing to find out who will receive an early copy of “Scrappy Fireworks”

 It’s raining outside and I’m dancing in puddles of fabulous fabric inside!

 Samples of my new collection “Dancing in the Rain” have arrived and I am enjoying the process of creating something fun for Spring Market! It always starts like puddles of color…

…and after a bit of dancing, splashing, and stomping my feet –  it slowly begins to take shape.

With a gentle touch and a bit of patience, it finally becomes the expression that I am looking for. This is one of the 3 table toppers in our new pattern “Rainy Day Trio”.

 Everything in the spring looks better after rain; I glanced through the window and saw my daughter, Anna, dancing in the rain with her camera catching these beautiful blossoms.

 The bleeding hearts that are in full bloom this time of year are one of my favorites.

Using “Dancing in the Rain – Layer Cake” squares I created this “Dancing Umbrella” quilt (pattern availiable mid May)  – my Mom always said, “If you can make one, you can make a dozen!” I like to think that she was referring to quilting blocks or cookies with that statement. Speaking of cookies, I think I am going to need some for an extra boost of energy to finish all of the projects I have dreamed up for the new collection “Dancing in the Rain”. I can’t wait to share all of them with you soon!

    This is the first time that I have checked out your website. Your books are such inspirations. I will look forward to ‘Dancing in the Rain.

    I just love your work. I am waiting for the “over the rainbow” fabric to come into the shops. My mind is working over time, trying to decide what to make. I think the Rainbow Star is on top of the list.

    I am an Aussie who saw you first on the Quilt show with Alex and Ricky…I purchased two books, a calendar and half square triangle papers…….then it was fabric…and sadly I have stash but there has been no productivity…..lots of show and tell about the purchases….however those pictures are inspiring. I have resorted to a lot of garden pictures due to the lack of sewing being accomplished and mine are Autumn at the moment. I adore that bleeding heart and the umbrellas are rather tempting as we go into winter.
    Thanks for some inspiration.

    Wow Edyta! You are one very creative woman. I love what you have dreamt up to inspire us to greater quilting heights…I look forward to working with all your new lines! Every time I travel down to the Lancaster PA area, I make sure I buy up every piece of your lines I can find. LBQ has its own section in my stash!
