My Lotta Aerial Quilt

Melanie said it best over @ Mel in the attic with her Aerial quilt finish. This quilt represents so many great memories of one short weekend.

As mentioned in my summary of Sew Down Nashville, one of my favorite activities was Carolyn Friedlander‘s paper piecing class using her mini aerial quilt. Everyone’s quilt reflects their own personality, and it is so much fun seeing some of them being finished now.

Well good news, I managed to finish my top today.LottaAerialQuiltAll the blocks are made with various prints from Lotta Jansdotter Echo, Bella, Glimma, Mormor and Sylvia lines. The border is black yarn dyed essex linen.

I am thinking of quilting it with a crop circle-like design, like these:

Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.

    Leah Day has a tutorial in her FMQ Project called “H20”. It’s supposed to be water molecules but it reminds me of the first crop circle you posted!

    Such a cool set of fabrics – the addition of the Essex black linen is perfect. I really want to hear how the crop circle quilting goes. I like the idea a lot!
