Echo quilt (+ giveaway!)

echo2

I’m excited to show you this quilt today! A while back I received an unexpected package from Windham Fabrics that included this great bundle of their upcoming Artisan Cottons. I was excited to see that they were adding these gorgeous shot cottons – I’ve always loved the extra depth that these cross weaves provide. I learned (during this blog hop, actually!), that half of these colors are woven with two different colored threads to produce the main color, while the other half are woven with a color and white to produce a chambray look.

Anyway, I admired the fabrics, then added them to the stash, because I was busy with other projects. As I pulled fabrics for other potential quilts, I found I frequently pulled colors from this bundle – they paired so well with so many bundles I put together (this one, and this one, most recently…)

eco3

Then, as is often the case, I suddenly decided this quilt shown in Roderick Kiracofe’s book, Unconventional & Unexpected, was a quilt I had to make right now, and decided that this bundle was the perfect fabric for said quilt (too bad I had already used a few of the colors!)

echo

While I usually like my like my quilt to be different enough from the inspiration that it feels like something new, sometimes I like a quilt so much that I want the same one for myself. This is the case here – I’ve always held a soft spot in my heart for string quilts (I’ve made quite a few, and have a tutorial on how to make a string block here!), and I really love how the blocks in this quilt use the same fabrics in an alternating fashion. I also am fond of the fact that mixed in with the solids, there are a number of other solids and stripes.

Since each block uses two colors, I decided to sew strips together into strip sets and then cut my square, rather than using foundation piecing. I think it was a lot faster, especially since I was able to cut a few squares from each strip set.

echo4

Like the inspiration quilt, I wanted to add in a few extra fabrics to help increase the size and to add a bit of extra interest – I raided my stash and was happy to stumble upon a couple Japanese bundles I had bought a while back from Westwood Acres (they have the latest First of Infinity and other great Japanese bundles available now) – the florals just seemed appropriate, and I was mighty excited to find the Suzuko Koseki stripes, especially since I could cut them so they ran perpendicular to the stripes in my blocks.

echo5

I love how the quilt turned out – I wish you could see it in person, because the shot cottons really add something extra that I’m not sure you can really see in these photos.

These new solids will be available in April, so be sure to look for them then! Or, leave a comment here to be entered to win this great fat quarter bundle of all of these beautiful colors. One comment per person, please! I’ll select a winner Friday evening.

UPDATE! A winner! Random.org selected #170, Tiffany, who said “Oh my word… so beautiful! I love stripes, and especially like the sweet little florals mixed in too. Stunning fabric.”

Thanks for all for playing along!

    Woman, you have sold me more fabrics than any store in the land! Every quilt you make has that special Ashley something that makes me wish I had made it and this one is no exception. I have typewriters, llamas, FFA2, and I must admit that for a brief while I had to stop following you to protect my bank account. That didn’t last long because I couldn’t stand not seeing your creations so of course I had to read your old posts, like subscribing to back issues. Now I’m practicing a disciplined life sewing from my stash, which has some good potential, thanks to you. I love shot cottons, I love solids, and I would absolutely love to have these! In fact, I can also credit you with a bit of Denyse that’s waiting to become a log cabin, and this stack could make that quilt a reality. Are you understanding me here? I sat on my hands during your IG destash and have questioned my sanity about that, but winning this bundle would restore my peace.

    Your quilt is lovely as are the fabrics. Thanks for the close-ups. The chambray effect does show up in the darker fabrics. String quilt is now on my to do list.

  104. 104

    I like strong saturated colors that make me happy, especially during the gloom of winter. Your quilt is exceptional, and you are right, piecing strips and cutting blocks out is way faster than foundation piecing, and more fun for me anyways.
    For a person that uses solids almost exclusively, because I really do not know how to incorporate prints in my designs, I have never tried shot cottons. Crazy, right? Maybe this will give me an incentive. Happy quilting!

    Your quilt is so lovely! String blocks are intimidating, ha ha. I might try your tutorial and give it a go – thanks for linking to it. Those fabrics are super yummy, too. Can’t say I would mind winning the giveaway! 🙂

    That is a lovely quilt! I wish I had your imagination/talent with putting fabrics together. I have never made anything with Shot Cottons, but I have been buying teeny bits of them over time, by getting small charm packs. Sort of like collecting Liberty of London’s Tana Lawn….lol. Think how much fun it would be for me to open and pet that fabric!!

    Judith says:

    I’m going to be starting a Dear Jane quilt soon, and I had planned on using dupioni for their iridescence. The shot cottons I’d found seemed either too loosely woven and ravelly or too heavy for the smaller sized pieces this quilt requires. Now, I’m reconsidering. These shot cottons look perfect, and there is a great range of beautiful colours. Thanks for the chance to win.

    An often heard design saying is ‘Color gets the credit but value does the work.’ I think you’ve identified a corollary saying in this quilt – ‘Prints get the credit but solids do the work.’
    This is a beautiful piece. And, as always, pictured in a beautiful environment.

    If it were not for your off-beat, unconventional designs and color combos, I would not quilt. I am not perfect and I cannot create something perfect.
