The lucky winner is #558, Melissa!
Melissa said “Man, I love this fabric. I’m not gonna lie. If I won the FQ bundle, I’d hoard it. I would put it on the shelf next to my other faves and wait until the fabric spoke to me and told me what it wanted to become. It’s gorgeous.”
My kinda girl. Congratulations Melissa! I will be emailing you for your address. Thanks for commenting everyone!

Really quick…if you didn’t catch my post over the weekend, this afternoon I am going to be on Pat Sloan’s American Patchwork and Quilting radio show! Read Saturday’s post to see the details – I hope you all will tune in!
So, yeaaaa! I finally finished my Echo quilt! I loved Lotta Jansdotter’s Echo fabric from the moment I saw it. It matches my family room perfectly and I knew I wanted to make something with most of the line. I decided on log cabin blocks, set on point.
I took the quilt to my favorite local barn for pictures, isn’t it pretty?
I quilted this in a meandering free motion style and it measures 58″ x 68″. For the back, I used some blocks of white, Kona Ash, and one of the larger scale Echo prints.
And now for the reason this quilt took me longer to post…I developed a new pattern for it!
The pattern includes lots of detail – cutting diagrams, assembly diagrams, quilt top assembly diagrams. If you’ve never put quilt blocks on point, there are directions that you can use with any blocks. I hope you will check it out! It is available for instant download in my quilt pattern shop. It’s also available in my Etsy store and Craftsy pattern shop.

What a mess. Not surprising, December is (as usual) not a good month for getting things done. Most of my free time is spent doing holiday related things and on the weekends, I just like to hang with my family instead of by myself in the sewing room. Oh, and my two year old thinks he’s done napping.
So, that not only means that projects don’t get done very quickly, but also that the sewing room doesn’t get straightened up.
But I did make some progress today. The Echo quilt top you see on the floor in the above photo is now finished *and* I managed to squeeze in the back too. Next up, basting! I also finished that Jane Market Bag you see half done (gift for my daughter’s preschool teacher). I totally want to keep it for myself.
I finished all the rows in my A Stitch in Color mini square quilt top. Now just to sew the rows together. I hope everyone else is having an equally productive Monday!
