Introducing Echo!

I first designed the Echo quilt a couple years ago and have been wanting to remake it in a different fabric line. I found the perfect one! I used the Maara collection by Alexandra Bordallo for Art Gallery Fabrics.  

Here's Echo, a modern take on a Log Cabin. Four jumbo Log Cabin blocks with some pieced logs to enhance the design. The pattern is available in my Etsy shop, and the quilt is featured in the Maara lookbook.

I couldn't resist taking Echo out into our gorgeous Michigan fall colors for a photo shoot. The leaves didn't disappoint! 

My favorite part of the quilt? I love the two alternating light strips in the outer corners of each block. One is a cream solid, and the other is such a fun safari print from Alexandra's line called Maasai village. I love the subtle look of these logs.

I quilted Echo myself, and I'm pretty proud of it. I stuck with my three most comfortable designs, and they fit well in the various logs. 

The design is the same for all four blocks but I changed up the fabric placement in kitty corner blocks. 

The great thing about a four-block quilt is once the blocks are stitched, assembly is super quick! 

Here's what you're waiting for: the pattern!
