Thrifty is a very basic and easy block. When I look at this block now, I think it could make an adorable baby quilt by using alot of different colors. I, however, just used three fabrics. Here is what thrifty looks like:
Unlike the Birds in the Air block, this block only has one way to make this pattern. Take a look at the four quilt blocks when they are sewn together.
I made this quilt into a "Lovie Lap Quilt". When I brought my Grandmother her Lovie Lap Quilt, she commented on how she would love to use it in the car. She said she loved the pockets to keep her hands warm.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job three 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.
