Sunday Stash #32

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!

Enjoy Sunday!

  3. That green birdsong stole my heart. I ordered 2 yards, and after receiving it, decided I MUST make all new curtains for my sewing room with it, so ordered 10 more yards. I want to make them RIGHT NOW but I think I need to wait until the Christmas rush is over.

  11. There is a cute photo of a dress made with this panel at fabricworm.com.

    I'm thinking of leaving the selvages on instead of hemming my curtains--love those selvages. What do you think? Yes? No? Problems?
