So, I mentioned that I had been doing a bit of sewing recently, right? I’ve been waiting to be able to show you what it is I was working on. I recently got the go ahead and I’m excited to show you this quilt, In Flight, which is made out of Lotta Jansdotter’s fourth line for Windham Fabrics (available early next year, I believe).
Her latest line is called Mormor, and I’m totally smitten. In fact, it might be my favorite of her collections so far. There are lovely hot pinks, some pretty corals, wonderful grays and even a few purples, which so many stashes seem to be lacking. You can read more about Lotta’s inspiration for the line here.
I was so anxious to get sewing with it (and there was a deadline looming!) that I completely forgot until after the fact to snap a photo of these beauties, so this quick shot will have to suffice. I’m quite certain that there will be lots of (better!) photos of the full line as we get closer to Quilt Market.
But back to the quilt! I had such fun making this one, not only because I love the line, but also because as it turns out, I kinda love flying geese! I decided to play a bit more with them and make a little something along the lines of my Flying Geese Gone Wild wall hanging. The wall hanging utilized a limited color palette, but here I wanted to play up those great colors, adding in quite a few colorful solids and combining them into fun pairs to make up the flying geese units.
Don’t those colors just make you happy?
And here’s the back –
Pretty pretty Mormor rainbow!
A big thank you to the wonderful people at Windham for giving me the opportunity to sew with this beautiful new collection!
