Echo Baby

I'm sure you've seen Echo pop up all over. It didn't take long for me to buy some of this line - the first time I saw it in a local shop, a little bit followed me home! I wanted several different prints but didn't want to spend a lot. So I picked my favorites and asked for small cuts-anywhere from 1/8 yd to 1/3 yard.
I paired these prints with kona in ash (probably my most favorite shade of kona-and the hardest to find lately!). Simple strips, some straight line quilting, and bias-cut binding. It made for a great baby boy quilt!

It was so hard to give this quilt away! It was graciously accepted into it's new home, though, where it is surely keeping a baby boy snuggly warm!

P.S. Check out the snow in those pictures! I think we got 6", and school was closed for 4 days (plus the Monday before was a holiday!). Oh, Seattle! It amuses how the busy, busy city just quietly shuts down for the snow. And ramps right back up when it melts!

We'll take some of that snow here in the other corner (NH) - we've had almost none! The quilt is beautiful, and I love that you kept it simple to show off the fabric.

For some reason I haven't heard of Echo, but I REALLY like it! It's striking, esp the last photo on the chair. I love it! We got 8" here in VA! Fortunate for those who like snow, unfortunate for my husband who has to get the power back on! But it is quite lovely for quilt pictures. :)
