Fabric collectors: welcome to Edyta Sitar’s scrappy world (+ fabric giveaway!)

The next highly anticipated book from famed designer Edyta Sitar is here . . . and it’s a scrap-lover’s fantasy!

Patches of Scraps

Packed with breathtaking scrap quilts both old and new, Patches of Scraps gives you two inspiring ways to enjoy them. First, there are the awe-inspiring antiques:

Second comes the patterns: re-create 17 of Edyta’s scrap-packed masterpieces with your own mix of scraps! Photos for the book were taken at the Issaquah Depot in Issaquah, Washington. The 1888 Depot building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The caboose below was built in 1942 as No. 1206 for the Southern Pacific Railroad. We think the setting is perfect for Edyta’s quilts!
