I listen to lots of quilting podcasts on my commute to and from work everyday. One of my favorites is Katie's Quilting Corner. Katie used to talk a lot about the Missouri Star Quilt Company (oh, goodness, I hope it was Katie!) I had never heard of MSQC before and I didn't go check them out for a long time. Katie would also talk about their "Daily Deals". I finally caved and went to their site. The first deal I saw was a layer cake of Lotta Jansdotter's Echo line for a ridiculously low price. I quickly took advantage of that deal. (I don't check out the deals very much any more, it is way too dangerous!! But, they are awesome deals.)
My lovely layer cake of Echo came and there were only 24 layers, so there was only half the fabric of your standard layer cake. So, what to do, what to do. Also there is a lot of white in this line, so I had to be careful of what to use as a "neutral" or background.
I came up with a triangle quilt ...I will tell you that, unfortunately, the layers were not nicely cut at 10",
And now it's big enough. And I love it. (But, maybe I should have mitered those borders.)
And that's the story of my Echo quilt!
