Fat Quarter Shop Giveaway - Bella by Lotta Jansdotter!!!

to say that i am excited about today's giveaway is an understatement.  i bit the bullet and pre-ordered yardage of bella by the amazingly talented lotta jansdotter a few weeks ago and have been stalking my mailbox ever since.  it was simply a no brainer.  i'm a HUGE fan of hers and loved her previous line echo.  i decided that you all should have some bella too! my awesome sponsor fat quarter shop has generously offered up some of this gorgeous new line for a giveaway today! thank you fat quarter shop <3

if you are new to the world of lotta jansdotter go check out her work.  she's got books, fabrics, papergoods and more. the talents of lotta have no end.  i always find myself anxiously awaiting to see what she is going to do next.  i'm hopelessly addicted to the color palette and the natural, modern & organic designs she comes up with.  just popping over to her website gets me inspired and antsy to sew and draw.  i think that is my favorite thing about lotta's work.  i want to create when i see her work.  it's not intimidating or overwhelming...just simply inspiring.  there's a freedom to imagine and just simply make when i look at her work.  it's addicting and i love that i can let my mind wander and go on a little journey when playing with her fabrics.  if you're interested in lotta and how she works and designs check out these two posts that i found interesting here and here.

the new line bella doesn't disappoint either.  with fresh colors, a touch of whimsy and some great  new staples i will definitely be using this collection in everything.  i had a very, very hard time deciding what color and what prints to order first. i wish i could have bought the whole line in yardage but this momma is on a budget peeps :P  i can easily see these prints lending themselves from quilts, home decor to clothing.  it's going to be so fun to play with them!  and i can't wait for you to play with them too!  are you ready to see what you could win?? yay!
