a bold, fun echino boy quilt


This probably looks familiar (perhaps a lot like this first one I made a few months ago), but I can’t help posting another one because I’m truly smitten with these Etsuko Furuya Echino patchwork quilts (girl versions here and here). I keep collecting the prints, and I love to combine them with some great solids for a fun, bold quilt.


I’m particularly fond of using the red, mustard and black prints for a great little boy quilt. I don’t make too many boyish quilts since I don’t typically like the fabrics designed for boys, but this one I love, and I think you can count on seeing another similar one in the future!


I rarely use red – either prints or solids – but I did find a couple red solids in my stash and decided to add one to this quilt. And then I liked it so much that I decided to use that same red for the binding.


And strangely enough (for me and my non red-loving self) I really love it!

But as usual, as much as I love the front, I’ve fallen kind of hard for the back. Isn’t that so often the way?!


Now listed in the shop! Sold! Thank you Julie!
