It has been a long time since I’ve spent most of the day in front of my sewing machine. Life has been so busy lately and I’m usually lucky to grab a few minutes here and there to work on a quick project. There is something very therapeutic about giving yourself permission to just relax and enjoy the process. Today was my day off and I had the house to myself. Bliss!
I received a stack of Mormor fabric by Lotta Jansdotter for Windham Fabrics and have been looking forward to turning it into a quilt. Mormor, like Lotta Jansdotter’s previous lines, contains Scandinavian inspired prints. Designs include flowers, leaves and organic shapes in a modern palette of greys, eggplant, coral, emerald, and orange.
I have been planning an equilateral triangle quilt for a while now and this was the perfect fabric. Using a 60 degree angle triangle ruler, the pieces were cut in no time. I wanted to really showcase the fabric so cut the triangles at 8 1/2 inches in height and alternated the triangles with white homespun.
I pieced most of the top today. Now I just need another day at home to sandwich the quilt and make a start on the quilting.
Windham fabrics are giving away three fat quarter bundles of Mormor and Sylvia fabric. Head over to the Windham Fabric Blog to enter.
