A lot of Lotta - a finished quilt

This easy baby quilt that I started a few weeks back is stitched, quilted, delivered and was apparently very well received. Job done, I dare say!

My quilt making this year has somewhat low in numbers owing to the re-emergence of my knitting obsession (which is still going very strong I'm afraid) but that does not mean I don't enjoy making a quilt. On the contrary indeed.

This is a happy quilt with lots of fresh colours that are almost all from Lotta Jansdottter's 2nd collection (more on this in my first post).

I quilted in a one inch grid including in the ditch to keep it all simple and allow the quilt to have a beautiful drape.

The back is also a print from stash but because I've had it for so long I can't recall where I got it from. But it is a happy addition as you see and works really well with the colours on the front too.

Binding was a fast and easy choice - I simply chose the widest stripe print in my stash and I love the bold frame it gives the quilt.


  1. Gorgeous! Don't give up making quilts- you are too good at it to not make more! Beautiful job!

  2. Beautiful fabric picks for this quilt. Job well done.


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
