Anna's Basket BOM
This quilt has a very sentimental meaning for Edyta. She named it after her husband's grandmother, who taught her how to quilt. Anna had an antique basket in which she kept her quilts. It was a laundry basket, and hence the name of her company Laundry Basket Quilts. This year marks the 20th anniversary of LBQ.
Our program will be launching as soon as all of the logistics come into place.. Fabrics have been arriving late in general, and depending on when they show up, it may delay this start date. Everyone is dealing with delays at ports, delays with unloading cargo, clearing customs, etc. Because of the timing issues, we cannot promise a definite start date at this time. We are working with the company to coordinate all the necessary pieces. It is possible that the start date may be delayed.
Please read thru all this info carefully so that you understand exactly what we are providing and so that you can have the experience you are expecting. Payment by credit card is required. We cannot accept PayPal or checks.
Our program is NOT OFFERING LASER PRE-CUT blocks with fusible applique. We are providing fabric for you to make the blocks in a traditional pieced and appliqued method. If you want your blocks pre-cut for you, then this is NOT the program for you!
is a $5 non-refundable registration fee to join the program. This will
not be used as a credit for your your first months kit nor will it be
returned should you cancel out of the program.
Our kit includes all the fabrics you'll need each month to make the stunning Anna's Baskets Quilt top. We are using The Seamstress Collection Fabric for our kits.Videos of each block will be shown on the Laundry Basket Quilts YouTube Channel. These videos will remain posted for your viewing on your schedule.
With your BOM subscription of $39.95/month (for 8 months) you will receive fabrics for 1 block and we will ship the pattern each month; The full quilt finishing kit - sashing, border and binding will be sent with the final month block.
BACKING FABRIC IS NOT INCLUDED. We highly recommend you order your backing now, if you want something from the line.
We are not mandating that you use ONE particular fabric for the backing. We are allowing you to make your own selection. The binding that Edyta selected for the quilt is a light blue. If you prefer to accent the pink/coral/red tones, if you notify us early enough by email thru the CONTACT US, we can make the swap.
If you need some suggestions for backing fabric, we would be happy to advise you. Email us thru CONTACT US. In general our recommendation is that the backing be a light or medium fabric. Everyone has their own preferences for backing, whether it is a showy print that conceals the quilting, or whether it be a subtle design that would showcase the quilting. This is why we choose not to confine you to one particular selection.
Right now, before the fabric arrives, you may RESERVE a backing and if you don't want us to send it until the program starts, you can enter a note into the billing system to let us know that. This way we can be sure to order enough backing in the color and style you prefer. Order 5 yards or a quantity of 10 for the backing fabric. Once the line arrives and is shipping, you can do the same thing, however, it will bill in your cart at that time . Again if you email us, we can work with you to convert that to a RESERVATION so that you aren't paying for the backing until later in the program.
Finished Anna's Baskets quilt size is 73" x 79".

When you order this item, a shipping fee will be added to your cart automatically. Computers CAN be smart. In this case NOT SO MUCH! The coding doesn't allow for making certain items shipping free. We will remove it from the cart when your order is received, unless of course you are also ordering items that you want shipped out now. It is strongly advised that you keep the BOM order a separate order from other fabrics, notions, patterns, etc. and we really appreciate your doing so.
