Echino Jacquards

At Fall Quilt Market as everyone exchanged hot tips on things to see, there was lots of excited whispering, “Echino jaquards! Echino jacquards! Echino!

Echino Fall 2012

Some lost photos from Quilt Market! How I could let Echino fall through the cracks, I don’t know, but we’re all here together now and that’s what’s important.

It’s called “Stamped,” and it’s inspired by the handmade, block-printed look. There will be six prints [...]
