We got a fresh shipment of new Echino and Ellen Luckett Baker for Kokka fabric this week! I’ve been waiting to get these on our shelves ever since I saw them at spring Quilt Market. These two collections were really great examples of designers incorporating unusual substrates into quilting and doing it beautifully.
First is Echino. The star of this collection is the sateen. Signature super saturated colors really shine (no pun intended) when printed on this cotton with a really unique sheen. Plus, they feel incredible! Sateen is a great way to create more interest in the aesthetic of your projects and gives everything a more luxurious feel to it. They are still 100% cotton but the weave makes them very soft and silky with a subtle sheen, similar to a lawn or voile, but with more weight.
|We even precut bundles!|
This collection features four prints in sateen and each features small metallic accents. I love the “glitter rays of magnificence” (as described by the manufacturer) on this stag print.
|“Glitter rays of magnificence” is maybe the coolest description I’ve ever heard.|
cotton and linen blend lightweight canvas in four more prints including classic cars, helicopters, retro city buses, and a super cool geometric print.

Framework collection by Ellen Luckett Baker for Kokka. This collection comes on two different substrates as well: lightweight canvas and double gauze.
|Broken Plaid in Teal, Charcoal, and Chartreuse|
|Sitting Geese in Chartreuse|
|Corners Canvas in Blue, Coral, and Chartreuse|
Framework also features prints on canvas! Like the Echino canvases, these are durable and great for bags or home decor but aren’t so heavy that they would feel out of place in a quilt. These canvases are quite versatile and add great texture to your projects.
|Daisy Chain Canvas in Grey, Royal Blue, and Teal|
