Echo in Plum Pudding Fabrics!

Have you been following the Plum Pudding Blog Tour? 

Plum Pudding is the new signature line for Island Batik and I was eager to join the blog tour with Sherry from Powered by Quilting. I'm excited that it's my day to show off what I've made with this gorgeous fabric! I'm a big fan of batiks, and the palette for this collection is fantastic--low volume, deep blues, wintry prints...what could be better? 

When I saw the Plum Pudding fabrics, I thought immediately of my Echo quilt pattern, which uses low volume prints. But then I decided to switch things up and use the darker blues in the "background" and the low volume and lighter prints for the main design of the quilt. I think it looks almost like an eight-pointed snowflake!

The Echo quilt is made up of four jumbo log cabin blocks. Which means once the blocks are complete, the quilt is practically done--only four blocks to join!

I love the texture from the machine quilting. I started out quilting straight lines centered horizontally, vertically and diagonally. Then I quilted every other eighth with straight lines.  And then I just.couldn' So I did the alternating eighths with wavy lines using the free motion foot. I really like the contrast the two types of lines created! 

Since there's no snow on the ground in June, I had my quilt holders stand in front of a group of pine trees (which you can barely see in this picture!). Pine trees seemed a little wintry to go with my snowflake quilt.

The Echo quilt is available in my Etsy shop and is 20% off through June 26th using code ECHO20.
