100 Economy Blocks all pieced together into a quilt top. 900 patchwork pieces. The blocks were sewn over a two day period and I did have to push myself to keep going. I watched all of Offspring Season 1 on DVD - 11 hours of Australian TV drama, and I enjoyed a quiet house as my boys traveled to Sydney for a few days to watch the Aussies win back the Ashes (cricket).
All of my fabrics were already cut and I made my blocks work with the fabrics that were there. I tried not to over think the fabric selection, but it sure turned out to be a cheerful quilt. There is a lot to see.
I am thrilled to see all of the different Economy Block Quilts that are in progress: see the hashtag #economyblockalong on Instagram or see the Economy Block Quilt Along Flickr Group for ideas and inspiration.
I have made a lot of progress since these photos were taken and hope to show you the finished quilt in the next few days.
If you have any questions regarding the quilt-along please don't hesitate to ask or add to the discussion forum on the Quilt-Along Flickr Group. You can join at any time. Make as many or as few blocks as you like, and use fabrics of your choice. No pressure, happy sewing.
Thank you for stopping by,
