Have you been sewing this week? I am really pounding out my Economy Blocks! At least I am trying to get through a bunch of these blocks so I can see an end in sight and maybe come up with a plan for setting them! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
All of my blocks were made using the free pattern on Generations Quilt Patterns here. They have a 2", 3" and 4" finished. The one I have been using is 4" finished.
For all of my centers, I am making fussy cuts.
Many of my fussy cuts are from out of print and hard to find fabrics. There is nothing worse than thinking you have a great fussy cut only to realize that you are way off!
On Wednesday I shared how I make these both easily and inexpensively. You can find this tutorial by visiting here. There is no reason to waste the good fabrics with bad fussy cuts!
The center fabrics are a lovely variety and the surrounding fabrics are mostly Liberty of London. All of my blocks are paper pieced using +Aurifil 50wt thread. I paper piece on my Bernina using a 1.5 inch stitch length and am LOVING the Schmetz Chrome needles!
Here are the newest additions to the Economy Block Village!
