edyta1-1Edyta’s love for fabric began at a very young age – when she used her mother’s newly hung drapes to create her first fabric project! Fortunately for all of us, her mother recognized her passion for fabric and thus began the journey with fabric and sewing. Creating beautiful gowns ushered Edyta into creative textile design and established the building blocks which lead her into a quilting adventure.

Quilting has enabled Edyta to express herself; her designs are the avenue to release artistic passion! The combination of inspiration from nature, a love for fabric, a keen eye for color, and her family teachings blended into the recipe for developing a flourishing talent for designing quilts and quilting patterns.

“My children and my husband are my greatest motivation, providing the basis that you can accomplish anything you want if you just set your mind to it. Being able to do what I love and share this love with others is the greatest feeling and reward I could imagine! This is the Cinderella dream for me.”

As the owner and co-founder of her company, Laundry Basket Quilts, she has been published in magazines world-wide and her quilts have been honored through receiving numerous awards.

Edyta is proud to carry on her family tradition that fabrics and threads have seamlessly stitched together through the generations.

 
In addition to her many other endevors, Edyta has created three Aurifil thread collections, Quilters Essentials, Kit Art and Over the Rainbow.

My favorite seasonal colors are shades of green. It’s the only color that transcends all seasons. I love the forest greens for winter, and sages for fall, the yellow greens for spring, and the limes and brights for summer. (Can you tell green is my favorite color?). Thanks for the fabulous prizes and a chance to win them.

  7. I am all over the color wheel…I love pastels with some brights thrown in for accent, then I wander to the falls colors that are rich and warm and make me want to wrap up in them. There are just to many perfect colors to pick favorites! ♥

  15. I love all the bright spring season colors….so refreshing after long western NY winters. The bright pinks, purples, blues, & especially greens are so welcoming!

  16. My greatest love are the warm colors of Autum. But also find great joy in every other season. Would love to win this.

  17. My favorite seasonal colors are the colors of roses in bloom, the iris, the lilacs and the hollyhocks. The taste of summer in the red watermelon, strawberries and the citrus of the lemon and limes. Well, you can almost taste the colors of the fruit.

  18. Hands down, I love all the colors of fall. They are so rich and inviting. Edyta does several fall patterns that are just amazing. Give me orange, rust, brown, red any day. I love all her work and Aurifil is the best thread to use!

  19. I enjoy rich colors, not wild bright just rich in their own colors. I am working on a deep burgundy and variety of greens light background. Thank you in advance.

  20. I love them all, and especially the way colors seem to sparkle next to each other, but would probably choose fall with it’s rich russets, greens and golds.

  21. I’m already thinking of fall! I’m liking rich browns, dark greens, golds and red-orange. My favorites would have to be spring, and bright pastels, yellow, sky blue, apple green, bright pink. Love the patterns in the book, and your thread!

  27. tough one to choose…But right now, coming out of the new spring, I’ll say the first, fresh spring GREENS! They are so bright, almost glowing and against that blue sky in the early spring morning… they just make my heart sing! 🙂

  28. I love the spring colors – so soft and calming and all of them promise a new beginning! Thanks for the chance to win the wonderful book and beautiful threads!

  29. Blues, greens, set off with yellows, golds, some reds, purples, well, you guessed it..all the colors of the rainbow.

  33. It would be so hard to choose just one or two colors. I love spring for the “new” green colors and the brights of summer. Fall is just one of the best times of the year when we are all surprised by the changing colors of the trees. The kid in me loves Christmas colors for the excitement it all brings. I would LOVE any of the colors of Mrs. Sitar’s.

  39. My favorite colors are reds, blues and beige/taupes. My eyes are drawn to any combination of these colors. Having said that, I also like the warm colors of Autumn…gold, yellow, orange, rust, brown and even green thrown in for good measure.

    Edyta’s designs and fabrics are amongst my favorites, Thanks for the opportunity to enter this generous giveaway.

  40. My seasonal colors hard to say love all seasons and all colors, but for question I would say spring colors greens reds pinks as with new grass growing and flowers blooming

  144. Wow! What a hard choice. I like colors that are soothing, and calming….. blues, pink, neutrals, The colors of a beach, the colors of the sky, the colors of spring,. I love them all.

  145. Purples and yellows for spring, hot orange with white for summer, fall greens, browns and golds and winter whites!

  146. I’m an autumn married to a winter so together we are drawn to brown rust navy maroon most of the time, but then I have my PURPLE YELLOW LIME days. what does that mean?

  147. sage greens and burnt oranges for fall, crisp white and grays for winter, purples and blues for spring, all greens, pinks and more yellows for summer!

  148. The Blues and Yellows are my favorite color combination…Something about the two combined always makes me think of country farmhouse décor.

  149. I love the spring colors. So bright and vibrant. I so need some Aurifill thread. Haven’t found it to buy in my neighborhood. My thread is inherited from my sister and is messing up my machine.

  150. I absolutely LOVE Spring color combinations, but wait… I also love Christmas color combinations… wait… Summer color combinations are so fun as well… hmmmm I suppose I am pretty flexible as long as it is COLOR! ;0)

  151. I love greens and pink reds in each season of the year….from the moment the leaf buds appear on the bare branches to the color of the fir and pine trees in the winter.

  152. My favorite season is fall and love all the colors associated with it plus I love how you mix prints and batiks together. I am currently working on your house quilt kit I bought earlier this year at a quilt show. Love your books and can spend hours dreaming of making all your quilts, large and small.

  153. I love all the bright colors of spring now,they make me HAPPY,HAPPY,HAPPY. Then in the fall the brown and tans make me feel warm and cozy.

  154. Right now I’m loving the bold, bright colors of summer – bright oranges and yellows, green, and bright pink and purple.

  155. I am a fall girl – red, gold, orange; anything that reminds of a beautiful fall afternoon looking at the vibrant colors of the leaves!

  156. I love all of the aurifil colors, and use them exclusively. My fav for seasons would be pastels for spring, brights for summer, oranges, browns and greens for fall and blues and whites for winter. Aurifil has all the colors I love!!

  157. I love Aurifil thread. It is so nice to work with and the colors are fabulous. I enjoy the fall colors but am trying to get out of my box and use others such as red. The book looks wonderful and I love working with batiks.

  160. I really like all colors However my favorite in quilts are the muted colors of autumn with a POP of red and a bit of orange to go with the brown, gold, and greens.

  161. My favorite seasonal colors are shades of green. It’s the only color that transcends all seasons. I love the forest greens for winter, and sages for fall, the yellow greens for spring, and the limes and brights for summer. (Can you tell green is my favorite color?). Thanks for the fabulous prizes and a chance to win them.

  162. Being an autumn child, I really loved the warm gold and orange colours. However, a close runner up is a bright spring green 🙂
    I would so love to try out some of the blocks in your book, and challenge myself with a new technique, as I have not yet sewn raw edge applique. And those are wonderful thread colours!!

  163. I love bright blues — like a clear summer sky. Ahhh…there’s nothing better. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  166. “What are your favorite seasonal colors?” Well, I am a fall girl… I love rich earthtones that just seem to go so well with everything!

  167. I’m torn between the spring and fall tones (can you tell I’m a warm-toned person?) — the soft peaches, blues, turquoises, yellows, greens of spring and their deeper fall counterparts always draw m eye. Thank you for offering the opoportunit to win such a wonderful prize.

  175. I love all the shades of blue: to me, they cover summer with clear streams, beautiful flowers and in winter, the ice, cold and snow. All colors are beautiful, but blue does take the cake!!

  176. I like all colors, but I think my favorite seasonal combination would have to be winter. I love ice blue, silver, royal blue and white together, clean, elegant and beautiful!

  177. I love all colors, especially bright colors. I am especially partial to the reds, greens, silvers, gold, blues and whites of Christmastime.

  178. I love the saturated colors of spring and summer flowers. I fill my yard with plants that provide cut flowers for my studio and these same colors find their way into my quilts.

  179. I love pink, green, and yellow from spring for quilts! I also like brights (red, blue, orange, purple, yellow, green)! I love a lot of different color combinations!

  180. I like sunny yellow colors because they represent intelligence and cheerfulness. I like purple because it is representative of self-esteem. I like turquoise because it symbolizes prosperity. I like orange because reflects energy. Pink helps to bring calm and blue is relaxing. Green symbolizes rejuvenation or the start of a new day. Bringing lots of colors together is joyful, isn’t it or wearing the color you choose for the day can be a reminder of what you are feeling that day. The same with choosing your colors for a quilt or wallhanging. Every time you look at that quilt/wallhanging, it can bring colorful memories. As you can see, I like lots of colors!

  181. I don’t think that I could pick just one season of colors.
    I love the pastel blue/green/pink of spring, the reds and oranges of fall, the bright colors of summer, and (especially) the blues of winter. 🙂

  182. Looking at my garden now, I see reds, pinks, oranges, peach, and many shades of green with white from my gardenia bush. I feel renewed this time of year, so these are my favorite seasonal colors.

  183. I have to say that autumn has my favorite color palette. The colors are so vibrant and on one turning leaf you can find a myriad of colors. Not to mention the tree itself.

    The new book looks amazing and I am a huge fan if Edyta.

  184. I love the fall colors, like rusty copper maybe with a few blues thrown in. In fall there are just so many colors ranging from oranges to greens.

  185. Sorry I missed out on the giveaway chance. I am behind in my blog reading. But I wanted to say how much I love Edyta, and this looks like a great book with some fun projects! I love her collections of Aurifil, too!

  186. I love and use all colors. There is something special about each season: Spring – pastels, Summer – true rich colors, Autumn – rich darker shades, Winter – gray shades of the color wheel. So all year long you get to play with all the colors.
