Follie

Did you know Lotta Jansdotter has a new line coming out with Windham Fabrics? I didn’t, so it was a really fun surprise when I received this lovely bundle. I have always loved Lotta’s prints, and I love how this new one is instantly recognizable as her work. I’m quite fond of the pink and that periwinkle blue included in this collection (and the yellow, and the grays…oh, and the orange…).

I had recently finished a similar quilt out of Cotton + Steel, and thought it might be fun to see those pointy triangles made up with other fabrics. I grouped the prints again, but this time I added in a few more solids and instead of using lots of white, I used a few different grays.

I love the mix of colors and I’m particularly fond of how these prints play so well with so many different solids. And of course I still really love those triangles!

Follie is due to start shipping in November.

    very pretty! I love this pattern just as much in this fabric as I do in the Cotton+Steel. Will this be an available pattern some day? (pretty, pretty please?!)

    COLORFUL TRIANGLES quilted in a variety of prints and solid fabrics, including the prints with black. All new designs from Windham Fabrics–WOW! I love the “look” and your photo shoot outdoors, especially the weathered grey wooden fence. I admire your creative use of colors mixed in this quilt! THANKS for sharing. Sarah in Minneapolis

    I love the balance you achieved with the light and brights and neutrals. I can’t decide which version I like better, but this with the new Lotta fabric looks so pretty at at the end of the summer.

    I’ve got a bundle of Mormor from Lotta that I haven’t cut into. Do you think the two collections will work together? Great job!

    Okay. I’m obsessed with your triangle quilts. The periwinkle in this one is divine! Can you please do a tutorial or pattern for these perfect elongated triangles?

    Looooove this quilt! And once I’ve taken the upcoming Angles class with Rachel of Stitched in Color, I’ll know how to piece triangles, too! I don’t have a clue now. ;)
