From the first preview on her blog, I was smitten with Echo by Lotta Jansdotter. It's crisp, fresh, organic, bold, earthy, modern and awesome!! I bought mine from The Intrepid Thread. Julie was so clever to pair it with some coordinating solids. They are all so gorgeous together.

Earlier this year I attended Lotta's printing workshop in Palm Springs, Ca. I had so much fun making a stencil and printing my own fabric. Lotta is such a talented and inspiring lady. At the workshop, she encouraged us to focus on simple shapes, inspired by everyday things. That's what I love about Echo. The motifs are simple and yet so stylish. On the way out, I shyly asked her to sign my book. She smiled a big smile and said (as only Lotta can), "Of course!"

This picture of Lotta was pinned from Fiona's site, Hop Skip Jump. Fiona made her own quilt and the picture above was her inspiration. I am 99% sure this is what I want to make with my pretty pile of Echo. If I could buy Lotta's sample from her book I would. I love it that much. What do you think about Echo?
