Maya's Echo Quilt

I have a little surprise for you.

A QUILT FINISH!

I had to keep this one hush-hush because it was a birthday present for a little girl who is very important to us: Miss Maya. Maya was born only a dozen days after Miss Maze and they are the very best of friends. I realize Echo is kind of an old line now since it's been out over a year, but guess what... I bought it over a year ago! I know. You're so surprised that I'm just getting around to using it.

Anyway, Jess freaks out when I don't post a billion and a half pictures of my quilts, so in an effort to keep her sane on that little island country of hers, here are more pictures than I really need:

Mazer wanted to help me hold it up. How could I say no?

Like my grape vine? We've had record breaking heat here for a couple weeks now and everything is getting burnt. I'm just glad there was still a little green left in the leaves to show you.

Quilted with double organic lines and squares. Orange 50 wt Aurifil. Holla!! I freaking love that stuff.

And now, my beautiful Maya-girl (whose mommy is a photographer, in case you're wondering.)

Miss Maya!

Her birthday party was great. Not only is her momma an awesome photographer, she also makes the most delicious cake pops EVER! Yes. I had one, but I stopped there. Trust me: It was no small feat!

  8. That quilt is awesome! I always end up using "old" fabric lines between stocking them away for the *perfect* project and being a general cheapskate. Your helper is too cute for words!

  15. I love echo fabrics! I'm trying to collect them all again. I really like the pattern you used as it shows them off nicely. Are you holding Maze in the first picture or is she resting on something?
    Maya is adorable and super lucky! =D

  17. I love all Echo quilts...It came out so well. Don't worry about it being a year old, use it when it suits you to make something out of it. i have many fabric that I just haven't got around using yet. Still have a bit left over of my bundle and am looking forward one day pulling it out and making another quilt.
