Echoes Quilts

Echoes quilts is a term I use for quilts made from leftover fabrics from earlier quilts. Echoes quilts are donated to charity.

Echo from 2014

Echoes - Superman
Made largely from leftovers from two Superman-themed quilts
Turning Twenty style
Completed 11/21/2014
Donated 11/21/2014
 To Stanislaus Family Justice Center, a local agency that helps abused people.

Superman print with smaller figures is from a Superman quilt made for my son Robbie.
Print with larger motifs is from a Superman quilt made for friend Andy D.
I incorporated other leftover fabrics from both quilts and added a few miscellaneous fabrics to fill gaps.

First original - Superman
For my grown son Robbie, a Superman fan since childhood.
Completed October 2010

Second original - Superman Opus No. 2 in A Double Flat Minor
For friend Andy D., who is also a Superman fan.
Completed January 2013

There are no common fabrics between the two original quilts, on purpose. I wanted each to be unique. Since this Echoes quilt came from two quilts, I'm callling it a Double Echo.
