On Friday night, I cut and stitched up this super quick quilt top. There's someone I've been wanting to make a quilt for for a while, but I couldn't think of quite the right thing. I've also been wanting to make an all Echino quilt for ages, and a couple of weeks ago it clicked that an Echino quilt might be just the thing for this particular recipient.
I choose a whole bunch of Echino fabrics from Stitchbird's extensive selection, sticking to mainly black, pink, purple, yellow and blue/aqua fabrics. Because the Echino fabrics have such large scale prints, the chunky squares I used work well and meant that I put this quilt top together in about 3 hours.
I've sent this quilt away for long-arm quilting, because I'm putting minky on the back. It's been a while since I had something long-arm quilted and I'm excited to get this one back. With the linen blend top and a minky back, it's certainly going to be one warm and heavy quilt!
