Yesterday I finally finished sewing together my Made in Cherry (Echo) quilt top, and I have to say I absolutely love it! As a queen-sized quilt, it is also the biggest sewn project that I have made to date; once it's finished, it will be living on my bed. :)
Since the weather was sunny and dry this afternoon; my husband and I decided to get outside for a walk, absorb some sunshine, and take a few photos.
I am really pleased with the way my fabric choices turned out in particular. The background fabric, being darker and more subdued, really emphasizes the bright, graphic colors and patterns in the star.
The background print--also from the Echo collection--is a wonderful, sketchy crosshatch that feels very vintage to me, like 1960's upholstery fabric. ;) Overall I think the quilt top has a kind of mid-century sensibility to it, with the simple design of the overblown star and especially with the saturated color palette and graphic-meets-organic feel of the Lotta Jansdotter's prints.
