a winner, and a little more patchwork

Thanks for all the great comments on my last quilt! It’s fun to hear from so many of you – I know it’s hard to take the time to leave comments on blog posts (I tend to read posts on my phone and even though I tag those I want to come back to comment on, I rarely find the time to do so), but I do enjoy hearing your thoughts!

Anyway, on to the winner… out of 400 comments, random.org selected #396! That’s Carla G who said, “What a fabulous quilt!! And the colors are awesome! Thanks for a chance to win! :)” I’ll email you shortly Carla!

And, just to add a bit of color to this otherwise drab post, here’s a little peek at my latest finish – a juicy and bright Echino patchwork baby quilt. Regardless of how many Echino patchwork quilts I’ve made in the past, I always love digging through my stash and pulling together fun colors and prints. The Echino here is paired with lots of Cotton Couture solids in corals, pinks and a bit of brown, along with a little neutral linen. I was quite happy to discover the perfect variegated thread, which adds a little something special. This one is also headed over to Nido for this weekend’s show!

    Oh I really love this happy and bright quilt! And with comments, it’s really similar here. I read my blogs on my ipad, but commenting with the german auto correction mode is such a pain, so I most often don’t comment at all…

    Help! I thought I saw you post a “plus block” with actual dimensions on a recent post.. but I dont see the quilt or the block. I was hoping to copy the dimensions of the block to make a similar quilt….I love all your quilts! Mati

    Wonderful, wonderful colours and a really lovely quilt. Squares are my all time favourite quilt thing, I don’t see enough of them!

    I love the variegated thread! I just started quilting with colored thread (instead of off-white) and I love the extra dimension is adds to the design. I am curious what linen fabric you use? I have been dreaming of making a linen quilt but worry that it will be too heavy. (Totally understand if you don’t get a chance to reply!)

    I love the little bee you focused on in the middle there. Do you know what that fabric is called?
