Economy Quilt for Charity



As for most quilters my scrap bins are overflowing. I wanted to do something about it and decided on an Economy Block Quilt. 

Through my quilt guild I have access to plenty scraps, and together with my own stash this ought to become an interesting collection of fabrics. Thanks to my Accuquilt Go cutter the pieces for the Economy blocks were cut in (almost) no time.  

Each finished block is 8" square . The finished quilt is 48" x 64", a great size for a young person.


It is quilted with straight lines with the walking foot, and used a variegated red/white/blue thread from Aurifil for the quilting (#3852). With all the different colored fabrics this worked out pretty well.

This is my second charity quilt for the year 2021, and number 66 all time for the children's ward at the hospital.

Keep on quilting!
