Sunday Stash #212 - Mormor and Sylvia by Lotta Jansdotter

Mormor by Lotta Jansdotter
I am excited to feature the latest collection by Lotta Jansdotter today - Mormor - Lotta's fourth collection with Windham Fabrics. There are in fact two new collections due for release in February 2014 (see the Sylvia collection below).  And I have to once again thank my fabric scout for picking up this bundle for me at Quilt Market in Houston. I can say that traveling home from NYC was eventful with all of my fabric bundles being submitted to additional x-ray and scanning. Yes, my carry-on luggage. Of course.

Mormor - Little Blomster
Mormor - Bergen
Mormor is a bright and vibrant collection and introduces a range of new colors that we haven't seen before from Lotta, including eggplant purple, coral and dark gray.

Sylvia by Lotta Jansdotter
Released simultaneously is the Sylvia collection.  Sylvia is Lotta's first all black and white collection. Black and white prints are easy to combine with other fabric collections, provide stark contrast and can be great feature fabrics. The perfect basic stash fabric.

MORMOR AND SYLVIA by Lotta Jansdotter are now available from:

Enjoy Sunday!

  6. little bloomster really has caught my eye and the black and white are stunning

  7. Wow! She does such a great job! I think I like these more than her other lines and did not think that was even possible. I will keep my eyes open for it.

  8. I really like the Sylvia collection! It would be great to combine with yellow or red!

  9. Love the name of the fabric - because everyone wants More!More! of Mormor!

  10. I really love Lotta Jansdotter fabric - and it looks like these are just as good. Can't wait for them to be available in the UK - especially like the black and white.

  11. Love the black and white collection beautiful black and whites are my fav

  12. Wonderfull fabrics - Do you know, that the name "Mormor" means Grandma in swedish/danish/norwegian? - and " Blomster" means flowers

    1. Oh, no I didn't know that! I do know that Lotta has dedicated both these collections to her grandmother who recently passed away ~ I have read that her grandmother was Lotta's biggest inspiration and supporter.

  13. Mormor is the maternal grandmother. Mor is an older word for mother, nowadays most people say Mamma but the word mor lives on in mormor. Farmor is the word for the paternal grandmother, far meaning father, so in swedish we see on the word itself what the relation is. That works itself back generation after generation, my husbands maternal grandmother, his mormor, is still alive and she is our children's farmorsmor, father's mother's mother, or fathermother's mother as the word actually translates. We mostly use the word gammelmormor though, the old grandmother, eldergranny. That's not as descriptive since there are two gammelmormor and two gammelfarmor in a family but it's a sweeter word.

    Blomster is a word I'm lacking the english words to explain better, it is flowers but at the same time in a broader kind of saying, (a) blomma or (many) blommor is the everyday word for flowers. If you use a kind of courier service for delivering flowers for example, then you are using a blomster courier. It's a flowerish word, kind of a fancy flowery word, or a most oldfashioned flowery word. Not a great explanation I know but hopefully worth reading once.
