A Friday finish. This quilt features several collections by popular designer Lotta Jansdotter; but features more of Lotta's most recent collection Mormor and therefore I refer to it as my Mormor Quilt.
This project has been an experiment in mixing pattern (bold/large scale prints and daintier florals) as well as a color challenge. The color purple does not rate in my preferred color palette but now and again I like to push my boundaries.
For the back of the quilt I again have used a single fabric - Script Britton Nummer Fabric for IKEA by Emma Jones - because it was still sitting on my cutting table from my last quilt, and because I thought it would work nicely for this modern quilt. My leftover Ikea fabric has now been folded and stashed, and I promise the next quilt will have a different backing fabric.
I have quilted this quilt with straight edge to edge vertical lines just one inch apart which creates a lovely texture and complements the modern quilt style. I've used a quilting (bar) guide attached to the walking foot to space the lines evenly. No line marking required when using a quilting guide which is a great time saver.
The yellow/white stripe fabric is Straws in Yellow from the Simpatico collection by Michelle Engel Bencsko.
This quilt is for sale. It is listed in my Etsy Store.
