Here’s a closer look at Echino Fall 2009 by Etsuko Furuya, previously seen at Quilt Market. It’s now available in the shops, woohooo! These are all cotton-linen blends — which some may argue is a better all-purpose fabric than quilting cotton. (It’s certainly better for clothing!) The border print Birdsong, above, is in four colorways, and the design runs parallel to the selvedge.
This is Flowerbed. I was drawn to the maybe-brown, maybe-purple colorway — I think my monitor deceives me because it looks brown to me, but Superbuzzy calls it Oxblood and Fabricworm calls it Eggplant, so I’m thinking it’s more deep purple/deep burgundy-ish? And last but most definitely not least, are Ornament, Quiet Ground, and Peacock.
Will you be buying some? Which prints?
