...so for some reason "Echo" is giving me some design challenges! I cut all these out for samples at "Sew Expo" a couple of weeks ago.
These ovals are cut and pieced to size for my Urban Abacus quilt. I wanted to have a sample of some blocks that coincided with one of my patterns. I do think these would look fantastic in the Urban Abacus pattern, but really challenged my self to take them and make a different design out of them.
I'll just say this! I ended up going to the fabric store and buying 1/4 yards of each of my favorite prints again! I decided I needed to start all over with some un-cut fabric and come up with a different design, using the "Echo" fabric, that was my original intention when I bought it the first time around.
...and this is what I came up with:
I've gone back and forth about a couple of things on this block, but I think I've decided to keep it the way it is and for some odd reason my square in square blocks are a bit crooked??
I think my "Echo" design challenge is solved now and for the ovals...well, my Sister-n-law is due to have a baby boy soon and those would be great for a baby boy quilt.
