A few snippets of what I am working on this week.
I am excited to see that Mormor and Sylvia by Lotta Jansdotter are now arriving in stores! Seeing these pop up in stores has made me want to get started on a new Lotta project.
I have cut into both of my fat quarter bundles (Mormor and Sylvia). They're gorgeous! The fabrics and prints are wonderfully easy to work with as a collection, but because I can't help myself I have thrown several other prints into the mix, including prints from Lotta's prior collections (Glimma and Bella). I love Lotta's unique design style and that all of Lotta's fabric collections work together so well.
The quilt design is super simple with strips of varying length sewn together into long vertical rows. The width of the rows vary from 3 inches to 5 inches and are arranged without too much consideration. Sewing spontaneity AND the color purple; two things that make me feel somewhat ill at ease, but I like to challenge myself and I am pleased with the end result.
Thank you for stopping by,
