Took a workshop with Edyta Sitar. Her company is called Laundry Basket Quilts (link to her site - click on title). WOW - it was great! We worked on the dresden plate with star points. It is a folding technique and we used a template. Her classes are wonderful - she supplies all you need in a kit, pattern, acrylic templates, and fabric from her batik line!
The second half of the class, she demonstrated her method of set-in-seams. No bias edges on the outside edges of the block. It was very informative and I had never done it before - so I was quite impressed.
