Svetlana adds to our Ready,Set,Go! series today with really fun tutorial. Svetlana blogs at s.o.t.a.k handmade where she shares her absolutely gorgeous quilts, fun tutorials and more. It’s hard to believe she started her first quilt not too long ago (December 2010!)… Visit Svetlana and then stop back for her tutorial!

Hello, my name is Svetlana Sotak. I live with my husband, our three children, and one incredibly affectionate kitty in a Chicago suburb.

I have a part time job and a full time obsession with beautiful fabric, sewing, and fresh, modern quilting. I started sewing about two years ago and I have not stopped since. I like to make bright and colorful bags, pouches, pillows, and quilts. I recently started hand sewing felt stuffed animals, too (I needed an easy portable project for the summer outings with my kids).

I blog about my crafty adventures at s.o.t.a.k handmade and I have an Etsy store the kokoon where I sell some of my handmades.
