I’m so excited about this new collection, Echo, by Lotta Jansdotter! I received a charm pack a couple months ago and immediately wanted to use the prints in a quilt.
Of course, a charm pack doesn’t provide too much fabric, so my goal was to use the few charms yet still create a decent sized quilt top.
I added in a few solids and some coordinating prints and made up some wonky blocks featuring the Echo charms.
I’ve been waiting for yardage of this line to come out, and when it did, I snagged some extra for backing and binding so I could finish up this little quilt.
I love this print, and knew that I’d love to see a large piece of it on the back. The quilt is a bit wider than the width of fabric, so I had to add in a little strip of another favorite print.
And for the quilting… some more straight lines. I do love this look!
I quilted most of it with lines about 1/2″ apart. Then I was inspired by some quilting shown in Yoshiko Jinzenji’s Quilting Line + Color book, so I adjusted the needle position to add in some sections with lines closer together. You can kind of see it in the photo below.
I’m really happy with how this quilt turned out! And now I can’t wait to start another quilt with some more Echo!
