Echo Quilt

IMG_3067

I created this quilt for a friend of mine based off of the Modern Stripes pattern from Frozen Knickers. The quilt is twin sized, and measures 68" x 80".

  Echo Quilt

The fabric is all Echo by Lotta Jansdotter with Kona White. For the back I used big blocks of Echo, Kona White, and some Kona Medium Grey.

I wanted to keep the quilting simple to reinforce the horizontal stripes, so I did some stitch-in-the-ditch quilting every 2" along each strip.

In the end I really love how this quilt came together - it is one of my favorite quilts I have made so far. I wish you all could see it in person - it really is beautiful in its simplicity. I would highly recommend this pattern. :)

Today is the beginning of Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. Be sure to head over and checkout al of the beautiful quilts in the festival. There are usually hundreds of quilts in the festival each time!

Linking up to Show and Tell Tuesday.

P.S. Thanks to my Mom, for diligently holding up my quilt while perched precariously on top of a stool, waiting for the wind to die down enough to get a shot. :)

  5. I love the rhythm of the stripes... it makes it striped but not stripe-y (if that makes any sense....) . Lovely!
