I wanted to make quilt as a gift for a friend, who happens to be one of the most stylish people I know. I wanted something modern, and Echo quickly came to mind. (I think it's been on my mind because I've been drooling over the previews of Lotta Jansdotter's new line, Bella.) I paired some of the blue prints from Echo with a handy Echo-inspired Kona bundle from Sew Fresh Fabrics. Easy!
My favorite Echo quilts (like this one from Ashley and this one from Kelly) are simple patchwork. I followed suit and cut the fabrics into 9-inch squares, keeping the prints big and beautiful.
The Konas are Sage, Nightfall, Ash, Aqua, Candy Green, and Glacier.
Thoughts on quilting this mama? I'm hoping to baste it tonight. I'm looking for something fairly quick and not fussy. Maybe random diagonal lines?
