echo quilt #45
This reversible quilt makes a nice baby shower gift, housewarming gift, wedding gift, hostess gift, great for the office worker who is always cold sitting at her desk. Looks wonderful thrown over the back of a chair or sofa.
A new design I'm working with, made from half-square triangles laid out to form a harlequin type pattern on the front with half-square triangles laid out on the back to form a star pattern.
This quilt is made from vintage prints, remnants, recycled and new fabrics.
Front:: made from half-square triangles in various prints/colors and khaki muslin laid out to form a harlequin type pattern.
Back:: half-square triangles laid out on the back to form a star pattern surrounded by a navy, gray, medium gray flower and dot print.
Quilting:: is done on an angle, vertical and horizontal, in a straight line pattern on my Gammill longarm quilter to form squares. Stitched with a khaki poly/cotton quilting thread so that it blends in with the beautiful prints and khaki muslin.
Binding:: pieced poly/cotton prints double layered machine stitched.
Batting :: Hobbs 80/20 cotton/poly batting has been used.
This quilt can be machine washed in cold water and machine dried on cool so that those lovely cottons tighten up even more giving you that cozy quilted effect that will cover you and your family in comfort. Or you can line dry the quilt to minimize the puckering.
NOTE:: since some of these materials are new please be sure to wash the quilt seperately and with a "color catcher" for the first couple of washes to catch any possible release of fabric dye/color.

From my farmhouse to yours………well not exactly a farmhouse but I do have a dog a cat and a dozen chickens on my 3 acres out in the country, so I can imagine that I’m in “my farmhouse”.
I have a photo hanging in my sewing room of my Grandma Lena hand quilting a quilt in her farmhouse and sometimes I do imagine living my life in her era while I am machine piecing and machine quilting my quilts. I hope that my attention to detail comes home to you with the quilt so that you can enjoy your own “farmhouse” where ever you happen to call home.
