When I draw up a pattern, sometimes I have no fabric in mind and other times I draw up a pattern to complement fabric I have in my stash. The Rainier Echoes Quilt Pattern was drawn up to use this gorgeous Cotton + Steel fabric.
I wanted to design to have a large center element and then echoing corner designs. And this is what I came up with.
The pattern has instructions for 6 different sizes: Baby (40 x 40 inch), Toddler (48 x 48 inch), Throw (64 x 64 inch), Large Throw (80 x80 inch), Queen (96 x 96 inch) and King (112 x 112 inch).
With each size you go up you just expand your quilt using the same design, with just larger pieces. The larger pieces make the quilt go together super quick!
Since I made the Baby Size (40 x 40 inch), I decided to do a little more detailed quilting than I usually do. This small of a quilt, quilts up really quickly. I followed the seams and design of the quilt. I lined my walking foot up with the seams, starting from the center of the quilt and working my way out. So there was never too much bulk going through the throat of my domestic machine.
I backed the quilt with this beautiful Cotton + Steel print that incorporates all of the colors in the front of the quilt.
I had Snow do some modeling with the quilt, so you can have a size reference. She is holding the Baby (40 x 40 inch) quilt. She is 5 years old, but a little small for her age.
My wonderful quilt testers picked such pretty fabrics to make their versions with.
