First Blocks for Echoes Quilt

First blocks for Echoes - Cathy's Southwest

Triangles and half-square triangle units leftover from the original Cathy's Southwest quilt

Pairing up turqoise and gold triangles. They aren't necessarily the same size.

New half-square triangle, not necessarily square, but I'm not concerned.

Added scraps from the original quilt, not worrying about symmetry, then trimmed to 6.5" unfinished square.

Every unit is a little bit different, and not like anything seen in the original quilt. I need 35 units and these took a couple of hours to make. I may make a few more like these, then simplify to save time. Each will be surrounded by medium purple solid, a bit lighter than the purple seen here. (My eye likes scrappy blocks against a consistent background and vice versa.)

I'll crank out some more units today.

  1. Your second quilt from these colors will be as striking as the first one! Love those colors together!
