Sunday Stash #213 - Echino Decoro 2014

Echino Decoro 2014 by Etsuko Furuya - Kokka Fabrics
I wanted to tell you that I don't have any Sunday Stash to share with you today and that I am awaiting the arrival of last week's purchases - like Hello Petal by Aneela Hoey and Catnap by Lizzy House - but I found some Quilt Market stash that I had tucked away in a safe place.  This is the 2014 Echino Decoro collection - yet to be released.  It is the medium to heavy weight fabric base (45% cotton 55% Linen) and suitable for home decorating, apparel and of course quilts. (And for some reason I cannot find a lot of information about this collection online. As yet).

Echino Decoro - Bees
The first image of the whole Echino collection doesn't show you how fantastic the colors and designs really are.  As we have come to expect from Echino collections the colors are saturated, and the designs vary from medium to large scale. In my mind I fondly associate Echino collections with  a heavy dose of the color purple - not a color that I am otherwise keen on - but I cannot imagine an Echino collection without this color.

Echino Decoro - Birds
Ah, the Birds and the Bees!  Both are stunning and I may have gasped when I unfolded my fat quarter bundle. I have said it before, and for the record I will say it again, but I really want a skirt in one of these bold prints.  2014 has to be my year for making a skirt - one that I will actually wear. Please hold me to it.

Enjoy Sunday!

  1. Thank you so much for showing unfolded photos of this collection! So many of the wide fabrics are never photographed open so it's hard to judge what to buy online. I'm totally eyeing the birds now. Thank you thank you thank you!

  2. I am blown away by the bee fabric! I've never been tempted by a 'cheater' fabric before - but hexies are soooo pretty!
