Economy Block Quilt Along

Posted on January 05, 2014 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

Have you seen any of those adorable economy blocks?  I first saw them on instagram (if you're on instagram, make sure to say hello to me!  My username is jennthurston ) and couldn't believe how cute those blocks were! 

Red Pepper Quilts has a paper pieced pattern as well as directions for traditional piecing.  Make sure to check out her site, the colors she selected are so vibrant! 

I decided to use the paper piecing method instead of the traditional route.  We sell this awesome light weight paper called Carol Doak's Foundation Paper for paper piecing, it can be put through the printer or traced.  I absolutely love it and use it whenever I paper piece!

I also decided on using my scraps since I have so much of them!  These are my first four blocks -

I can't wait to make more, I'll have to make a whole lot of economy blocks to use up all my scraps!
