I am totally in love with fabric by designer Lotta Jansdotter. I collect her fabric, have so much in my stash, searched high and low for fabric from her first collection called Echo, bought excess of it, then a friend saw it said I want a quilt from these fabrics, hmmmmm that was very hard for me to take from my stash but I did and love the way it has come you. Hopefully when things settle down I will be able to make more quilts from this fabulous collection, I have one special one waiting to be made which will be for our caravan. Cant wait to start that.

I bought this fabric a while ago on Etsy, wondered what I was going to do with it and why had I actually bought it. It only had 3 fabrics and then I bought 9 matching solids, all from Robert Kaufman Fabrics, then I saw Anorinas Quilt, http://www.sameliasmum.com/ and thought that would be the perfect pattern for this fabric, I had tons of solids left so thought i would piece the back with it and make a very large star. Love the way it came out.

It has been so long since i posted here but will be doing it more often now sorry. I have just completed my first lap quilt which is about single bed size, having never done one before and also having never used flannel as a backing it was a task but loved it and loved how it came out, I have learnt quite a few things along the way about working with flannel mainly the fact that it shrinks quit a bit, but I have completed the one so the second one will be easy.
