a little more echino

It’s a good thing that I don’t make resolutions, since I imagine that one of them would be something along the lines of ‘(try to) finish one quilt before starting another’. And if that were the case, then I would have already broken said resolution. This week alone I’ve jumped from quilt to quilt, and even though there are a couple that I’d really like to see finished, I found myself grabbing my Echino fabrics to make up a few simple blocks.

These fabrics really make me happy. I love the bright colors, and I really love how they look all together. I decided to make up simple quarter log cabin blocks – it’s a design I’ve wanted to make for a while, and I think it will be a fun one with these colorful prints. (Chaotic, yes, but hopefully in a good way!)

So this is probably where you’ll find me this weekend – combining some of my favorite prints into these colorful blocks. (And I’m going to try my best to continue working to finish those other quilts!)

    I have that problem myself… in general, I tend to be more of a starter than a finisher, but sometimes I rally and complete a bunch of things. I love the bright colors too!

    really like these. I love the echino fabric and sometimes come up with a blank as to what to do with it.
    thanks for sharing these blocks. they look great and now I’m not so blank!

    I don’t see anything wrong by jumping from one quilt to the next….it make the quilting process more exciting to always be working on many quilts, all at different stages.

    I am like you, I start several at a time! Hey, I have a question…do you quilt all these or send them out?

      I quilt them all at home. I have a slightly larger quilting machine, so it does make it a bit easier than doing them all on a regular size machine. (though I do all straight line quilting on my regular machine).

    To me, try to finish means progress towards finishing. I’m certain you’ll do some of that this year! LOVE the blocks!

    Yes, I’m the one who made the resolution to finish the WIPs before starting a new quilt. So far I’ve been good. Not being able to visit the LQS helps.

    So beautiful! I wish I had enough Echino in my stash to make a quilt, but they’re so expensive!

    These blocks are so attractive.

    Questions: What kind of quilting machine do you use?

    Would you kindly explain the reason you chose this name for your site?
