We Interrupt the Regularly Scheduled Program to Bring You...

We interrupt the regularly scheduled program to bring you...  Ok, so I've been busy with the long arm doing customer quilts, shop samples and quilting up a few of my own  in between!  It's been humming away at a regular pace--I'm still taking in quilt tops at just 2$ per square foot this month, so take advantage if you would like!  I've decided that I won't add photos of customer quilts as to take so many pictures would be a big job.  Also, I would have to ask permission for each one and although I am doing the quilting, it's not really my work.  I want to keep this blog as a documentation of my own quilting journey as much as possible.

I did feel compelled to put this quilt top onto the machine yesterday and quilt it out (I used an Anne Bright pattern called Square Dance).  I love the new Echo line by Lotta Jansdotter.  It's so fresh and modern.  I never thought that I would ever do a turning twenty style (I didn't have a pattern) quilt as the piecing is so simple, but I just couldn't cut these fabrics up any further.  I really felt that this was the perfect way to display these fabrics.  Simple and large.  Now I just need to bind this and it will be heading off to be a Christmas present for someone in the States...  I hope they like it as much as I do!

It's gorgeous, and I do love this line. You're right, it's definitely not meant to be cut up too small, otherwise you would lose the big, bold prints. I bought a fat 16th bundle of it recently, just to have it, but I think after Christmas I may have to treat myself to a 1/2 yard or yard bundle of it, maybe as my birthday pressie... :oD

Oh, this is just perfect. I'm really into simple patchwork these days, and this was for sure the best way to showcase this line. I'm making place mats and napkins for our house from Echo right now :)

It is so beautiful, and you are right to keep those fabric pieces a bit larger so the prints can be seen!

I'm doing the exact same thing with my echo fabrics - I can't bear to cut them up into small pieces and lose that wonderful scale. It looks beautiful!
