Don’t worry, I did not just “whip up” a new quilt over the weekend. 🙂 Believe it or not, this quilt has been in the works since February! It was all the way back then when Tacha from Fat Quarterly emailed me to ask if I wanted to write some tips on sewing with double gauze for their July issue on working with alternative fabric, as well as maybe come up with a new pattern. I love Fat Quarterly so, of course I said yes right away!
This quilt uses various Echino fabrics, from linen to double gauze. The name “Rainchino Rails” comes from a combination of “Echino” and “Rainbow”. Looking back six months ago, it was so dreary and snowy and cold, I am not surprised I came up with such a colorful quilt top.
The back of the quilt uses various left over fabric from the front as well as Kona Cerise. LOVE that color. I also used it for the binding. The quilting is straight lines, 1/4″ on each side of the vertical seams. The final size of the quilt is 70″ x 78″.
You can find the complete pattern for this quilt as well as many others in Issue 6 of Fat Quarterly. I just received my copy over the weekend and it is amazing. This quilt in particular will probably end up in my shop.
