Blocks for Echoes - Cathy's Southwest
This week I got all the blocks finished for Echoes - Cathy's Southwest. Right now I'm sewing blocks together in rows. To build the quilt to the desired 70" x 90" (twin bed) finished size, I need to add 10" of border on all sides. My plan is to add two 5" borders, one probably in a dark purple similar to the one in the original quilt and some of the blocks in this quilt. Also I plan to add another border in the same medium purple seen here.
Just to make my life more complicated, I decided to make a quilt for soon-retiring co-worker Roxanne D. I scouted out fabric last night, bought some tonight, and will design and start sewing the quilt in the next couple of days. This will be a fast one, with a simple design. I don't have time for anything complicated. I'm counting on the wild, bright fabrics to be enough to tie the quilt to Roxanne, since she wears a lot of bright colors.
