WEEK 1 – Rainier Echoes Quilt Along – Cutting our Fabric

WEEK 1 rainier echoes

WEEK 1 – Cutting our Fabric

Welcome to WEEK 1 of the Rainier Echoes Quilt Along! This week we will be cutting out all of our pieces! You can stay organized by labeling your pieces. I usually write the color and size on a little piece of paper and pin it to the fabric stack. You could also use label stickers!

I don’t pre-wash my fabric. But if you want to that is totally fine. Make sure you have purchased a little extra fabric to account for fabric shrinkage and any fraying.

Make sure to iron out any wrinkles before you start cutting your fabric.

A sharp rotary blade, cutting mat and 6 x 24 inch ruler are very helpful when cutting.

This quilt pattern will be 25% OFF thru April 7th (The quilt along start date). After April 7th, the quilt pattern will be 15% OFF thru the end of the quilt along.

I had drawn this pattern out in the beginning of Summer, but with the kids being home and all the Summer activities, I didn’t get a chance to actually make the quilt until the kids when back to school.

I was scrolling through Stash Fabrics Sale section (not sponsored, just love their deals) and found the gorgeous Freshly Picked fabric and I had to have it. I had been wanting to use this fabric collection for a long time, and now I finally had the perfect pattern for it. They didn’t have the whole line, so I grabed a couple prints from Fabric.com (not sponsored)

I used 1/4 yard cuts from my quilt, but you can also used Fat Quarters are scraps that are large enough!

If I have to piece the backing on a quilt, I will usually go for a solid fabric or a sheet. But this gorgeous fabric was calling to be on the back!

I went with quick and easy straight line quilting for this one. And I bound it in a beautiful blue fabric from the Freshly picked line.
