Economy Patch is a great quilt block when you are trying to feature one main fabric with a larger print. I chose this block because the fabric I was using had a beautiful rose pattern. I didn't want too much around it to distract the main fabric.
The background of the main rose fabric is light so I added a darker first border to made the rose fabric pop. My completed quilt is a "Lovie Lap Quilt". Take a look.
I have been very fortunate to be able to spend my summer on the coast of Maine. My Mom has had a cottage there that I have been going to for over 50 years. It is my most favorite place to be. There are so many memories not to mention it is a beautiful spot.
Needless to say I have not been blogging all summer. I just took some much needed time off. But here it is September and I am ready to get back to sewing and blogging.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job twelve years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
