Artist Description: I have long been a fan of Edyta Sitar's quilt designs. The delicacy and intricacy of her patterns are simply beautiful. When the Bits of Baltimore and Beyond project came about, my first thought was that I had to select one of Edyta's patterns. The one I chose is a heart from her book "Sweet Sixteen" which contains sixteen luscious blocks, each one prettier than the next. I enjoy both piecing and appliqué … piecing in my sewing room, appliqué while relaxing in front of the television or stitching with friends. This block was fun to stitch and gave me an opportunity to try a few simple silk and rayon ribbons. The hand quilting took a bit longer than I thought it would. I like the process, but I am oh, so slow at it. I truly hope you like the final block.
