San Diego Quilt Show and a Giveaway!

This year marks the 35th Anniversary of the San Diego Quilt Show, which opened Wednesday Night, downtown at the Convention Center. It runs through Sept 3. I always look forward to this show, with many beautiful quilts on display, and lot's of vendors to shop.

This year the guest artist is none other that Edyta Sitar from Laundry Basket Quilts. While I was unable to go on Preview Night this year to see her presentation,  I did stop by her booth to see her amazing quilts, and hear a mini presentation on her entry into quilting where she talked about some of her beautiful quilts. Edyta also gave a demo, using her templates and technique on making a compass blocks. It was super easy and with great results. Her quilts were amazing, using lots of scraps, and I loved them all!

  7. I love Edyta's designs! Sugar Shack and Dresden Bloom are among my favorites ad. I love her Friendship Triangles book!!

  8. I just love any of Edyta's quilts that use her blue barn fabric line whether stars, baskets or whatever.

  9. Every one is superb, but " Aloha" is my choice, I love the way the pattern shows off the fabric so well.Times like this I so wish I lived up North, instead of down here in New Zealand. Oh well, dreams are free.
