It had to be done!


The time has come to cut into my stash of Echo by Lotta Jansdotter.
 

Echo by Lotta Jansdotter is such a pretty fabric collection that I was keen to feature the fabrics;  accordingly the quilt design is super simple.  I have used a neutral gingham fabric for sashing around each of the quilt blocks which helps to soften and blend the colors.


The quilt top is now ready for basting, quilting, and binding.  Busy days are ahead!

  14. Beautiful! I have yet to cut into my Echo stash as well, but I think I will also use a really simple design to really show this gorgeous fabric. I love how you paired it with the gingham.

  15. Isn't it weird how difficult it is to cut into our favorite fabric? ha ha! You quilt top is beautiful!!!

  16. it looks so neat and tidy with all the seams showing through from behind but just out of interest is there a reason why you iron all the seams to the white side and not the colour when the two meet? This is going to be a lovely quilt. the fabrics are so interesting and the sashing works really well.

  39. Hi Rita,
    I just love these fabrics and have been doing a mad look around to try and find them since you posted this quilt top. I also love the pez you added in and there is a bright yellow and white ring you've added and I was wondering what fabric that was as well.
    Love love love this so much!
    Cheers :)
