Let's see some fabrics! My new collection, Lottie Da, started shipping this week. I'm over the moon. And I'm thrilled to share the line with you today.
With a playful, 60's-mod vibe, Lottie Da combines dancing pop florals with groovy go-withs—butterflies included. With strategic contrast planned into the collection (value, hue, scale, and so forth), Lottie Da is versatile and fun. Combine like-palette prints for a quiet, sophisticated look, or incorporate contrasting colors and values for greater pop. You can take this collection in so many different directions.
Tweaks to my production process allowed me to experiment with colors I haven't focused on in the past—violet, aqua and charcoal to be specific.
I started sewing with Lottie Da this week and I'm having a blast with this zingy palette. I designed a foundation-paper-pieced project I'll be sharing soon, along with a new free Lottie Da quilt pattern. I'll show you how the prints can be combined for different effects. I'll also post peeks at some original Lottie Da artwork and previews of projects to come.
To celebrate the launch of Lottie Da, let's have a giveaway—giveaways are the best. I have a lovely Lottie Da fat quarter stack for one lucky winner, including all thirty-two prints in the collection. Enter by Sunday, September 15th at 11:59pm PST by leaving a comment on this post. Make sure you enter your email address in the comment form so we have a way to contact the winner. One entry per household.
But! Don't wait for news on the giveaway before stocking up on Lottie Da. The first print-run of a Heather Bailey cotton collection tends to sell out quickly, so stock up fast and soon or risk having to wait a month or two for the next shipment.
