I'm back! I finished my Echo quilt and had a few minutes before work to take a few pictures.
It was a quick and simple quilt, and I think it fits my friend's style.
Echo is getting a little hard to find, so I used half-yards of the blue prints and fat quarters of some coordinating Konas (Ash, Candy Green, Nightfall, Glacier, Sage, and Aqua). I found the Echo-inspired Konas at Sew Fresh Fabrics.
I cut all of them into 9-inch squares, which seemed to work well with the big prints.
I quilted in random diagonal lines and used this brown Echo print for the binding.
I used another Echo print for the back, and I used up my Echo scraps to fill the "I didn't buy enough fabric" void. I think it worked out well! I used almost every scrap of Echo for this quilt, which makes me both happy and sad.

I gave it to my friend today (it's a wedding gift), and she really seemed to love it.
