The lovely folks at Windham sent me a charm pack of Lotta Jansdotter's new collection Glimma (I believe it's out in April) to play with. I've always loved Lotta's designs, and Glimma is just as gorgeous as her past collections. The unexpected pops of colour are my favourite bit.
Of course my favourite one is that orange fabric with the little trees. Love!
I auditioned quite a few solids for the background and finally settled on Kona Medium Grey since all the colours seemed to pop the best on it. The quilting was really fun to do... random straight lines all over the place! I kept having to stand back and figure out where to put another line hehe And the binding... ahhh the stripey binding. Can anything beat a black and white stripe? I think not.
This one was tiny... 32" by 39". Oh yeah, and for the backing, I used Kona Mustard. You can imagine that yourself and pretend that I didn't forget to take a picture of it and that when I did remember, the light had gone byebyes. I got the dumbs, you guys.
Oh by the way, January 24th is Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day! I'll be at my LQS working... so you know I'll be leaving with something. Yeesh.
