So you've already seen the dot fabric that arrived this week from Superbuzzy. Well there was more! More? Yes I absolutely could not resist the new Echino Fall 2009 fabrics:
Echino - Birdsong
This fabric is designed by Etsuko Furuya for Kokka Fabrics. It is 44 inches wide and 55% linen 45% cotton. This fabric is a little heavier than patchwork fabric, but still appropriate for use in a quilt. It is a border fabric, with the pattern running along the width of the bolt, also known as railroaded. The new collection is inspired by nature, and includes Peacocks, Elephants, Birds, Rabbits and Giraffes.
Echino Fall 2009 - Birdsong in Green and Pink
Birdsong is a large scale print with larger birds perching on vines above a field of leaves and below a flock of birds. The quality of the fabric and print are exceptional, the colors really vibrant.
It was my intention to use this fabric as backing, however, I think it would also make a great quilt top just by itself! You can see all the fabrics in this range here on TrueUp which, in case you are not familiar with True Up, is a blog dedicated just to fabric!
