Lotta's description of her collection:

"This is the fourth fabric collection I have created together with Windham Fabrics; well actually it is two collections. "Mormor" is a vibrant and bright collection of prints. I added some new colors to my palette: the purple eggplant color, the dark grays and that wonderfully sweet coral color. "Sylvia" is my first all black & white collection, which is easy and fun to combine with all the colors and designs in the Mormor collection.

While I was designing these collections last fall my grandmother passed away. My mormor Sylvia lived a full, long and rich life, and she was a true maker most every living day. She taught me pretty much everything I know about sewing, crocheting and baking cinnamon buns.  She was a very inspiring person in my life and one of my biggest supporters. I want to dedicate these two collections to her."
