A few weeks ago I received a nice thick envelope from Hawthorne Threads : a fat quarter bundle of Echo from Lotta Jansdotter. Altogether 20 different fabrics. I was thinking over and over what kind of quilt could I possibly make out of these colourful fabrics. I decided to go for a classical log cabin with a plain white center. So all blocks are finished and the design wall is waiting for a definitive layout.
Block size : 8,5″ square, quantity : 63 blocks, finished quilt size : 54″ x 63″.
Looks a bit wild, but I think at the end of the day the colours and patterns of this collection harmonize extremely well. I know exactly what kind of quilting work is awaiting me in the next few days : finish the quilt top, prepare the backing, get the sandwich done, pin and quilt and quilt and quilt !!
Happy quilting, Barb
