I’m giddy with excitement about the free pattern
Kerry from Very Kerry Berry
we have to show you today! Kerry designed the Bella Mountains pattern with Bella by Lotta Jansdotter
in mind and when I finally got to see this duvet in person I was absolutely blown away. It’s stunning! You’re going to want to make one for yourself, believe me. This glorious project is now featured on our homepage and you can read on for more details and the free pattern. Thank you Kerry!
At last it is time to reveal a new free pattern for The Village Haberdashery
, ‘Bella Mountains’ Duvet cover. Annie contacted me a few months back with asking if I had any ideas for a project for Lotta Jansdotter’s latest line Bella for Windham fabrics.
I wanted to make something big, the patterns are bold and I wanted to capture that. And then I thought of a duvet cover. I struggle finding good quality cotton bedding which isn’t either overly flowery or decorated with hideous scratchy stitching.
This is my solution: a bright, Scandinavian, mountainous duvet cover that will keep our little bedroom looking light as we go into Autumn. I chose 15 Bella prints and a Kona solid- Annie said white was the best match and she was so right, it was spot on.
I must mention the influence of Marit here- herWanna Tri posts on 60 degree triangle quilts really captured my attention and she is a great source of knowledge and tips.
There is no waste in this project, only a few scraps left at the end and I used those up making matching pillow cases. You could take this design a little further and use coloured solids instead of the Kona white- Annie has a list of colours that will match the Bella prints.
You can see the entire Bella collection here at The Village Haberdashery and I will be giving away
great big fat FQ stack of the whole Bella line. Visit my blog to enter. And you can find the Bella Mountains pattern here.
