patchwork, patchwork, patchwork…

I hope I’m not boring you with all these Etsuko Furuya patchwork quilts. I know I’ve shown several of them in the past, but this is what I’ve been working on all week… lots of little squares, all rearranged into fun quilts!


I love how each one is just slightly different, depending on which prints and solids are selected. I’ll be really sad when I run out of these older Echino prints, though I do love the new line – how about you?

Here are the latest versions —


a boyish one in blue, green, red and mustard


pretty in pink (and aqua!)


and purple panthers and pigs…

The boyish red/green/mustard one is already spoken for, but the other two are listed in the shop!

    I love those! I have those scooters and really need to use them. I’m not as crazy about the new line though.

    Nunca me canso de ver estos edredones. Como todas pienso que menos (por simple) es más. Me encantan los dos últimos parece que las telas tienen su propia canción en la armonia.

    I would like to bunch all of my Echino into a pile and roll around in it, so no, I’m not bored of looking at your beautiful patchwork quilts!

    ashley, everytime i see your beautiful enchino patchwork quilts, I want to pull out all the prints I have in my stash and start cutting, sewing and quilting them. i am using all forms of self control to stop myself until some of my other projects in process are done!! I love all of them!

    I love them – the only problem is that they look so nice together that I’d want to make three and hang onto them all, and our house definitely doesn’t need three more quilts!

    These quilts are by far my favorite ones. In fact you inspired me to finally use some of my fabric from her and I used it in a recent quilt. I decided to use large pieces of fabric for the quilt because I loved the design to much.

    The panthers & pigs one is awesome.

    Well, I think that’s the beauty of simple squares. It’s all about the fabrics, and I never get tired of the endless ways that color and design can be put together. I, for one, will never be bored of these. So simple, yet so beautiful 🙂

    Oh my, you’re not boring us! Your blog is always a wonderful shot of colour & inspiration each day. I’m with you – I love how each one has a personality of its own depending on your fabric combination. Keep them coming!

    BORE US?! ARE YOU FLIPPING SERIOUS?! Your quilts are a MAJOR source of inspiration for me! And your patchworks are the reason I am going to ATTEMPT to do one for my next (only my 2nd overall) quilt project!

    I don’t think these look the same as your previous ones. I still love them, especially the girly version. Will have to check out the new Echino line since I don’t own any.

    I’m pretty new to quilting (I’ve only made one quilt so far, but have been sewing for quite a while)…but I just LOVE the look of patchwork. Any tips/suggestions on how to get started with a patchwork quilt? Or should I just gather my fabrics and start in on it?
