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 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.
