LOTTA JANSDOTTER has paved her way
and her fabric into my heart!
She is a wonderful, amazing designer!
This year...I am bustin my stash that contains
her earlier lines like ECHO and GLIMMA
I never buy a pattern first...
Fabric finds its way into my stash then
I search for the perfect pattern
Like this one in a magazine
"Pave the Way" by Karen L Gray
The chain piecing began...
using the1/4" dual feed foot and long fabric guide
on my Bernina 740 - Ms. Nina
Threw some rows together
Added solid white shashing and small borders
and voila....top is done!
This pattern really showcases the prints!
I didn't want to buy any fabrics for the backing
as my stash is HUGE!
I hung the Lotta top on the design wall
Found a yard of Lotta and cut it down the fold
hung it in the center of the backing
Kept pulling fabric in building the back like a puzzle.
Til the entire top was covered with some room to spare for kwilting. Just mixed it the placements til I liked it!
And I "paved" right over two of the challenges
I am participating in!
Who is one of your favorite designers!
I know you have more than one!
