I mentioned yesterday that I’d made my first economy block at the weekend.  Yesterday I wasn’t in the best of moods but in between trying to drink cups of tea and other stuff I managed to make this little lot:


I am delighted to tell you that all these fabrics aside from donated pieces are from my scrap boxes. Going through the boxes I realised that they truly are scraps boxes with not many pieces being 4″ square which is the largest piece needed for these blocks but I stuck to my plan and didn’t use anything from stash.

I’m going to turn the blocks into a table runner 3 x 7 so need to make another 2 blocks. My plan is for a reversible runner with 3 lone stars (if my maths is correct) on the other side, then it will serve well as a sample for a workshop that is being planned.

I’ll be linking up with Sarah at the end of the month:

  1. They’re looking fab! It’s great digging through scraps, isn’t it? Get to show case those little pretty prints once again 🙂

  2. Funny!!!! I see a square that I send for the FSQ Rainbow Charm Swap on Flickr :-)(the blue car fabric on the last row) I haven’t done anything with my received squares yet, but indeed they are fab for ecomony blocks!!!

  3. I finished my #economini today – all from scraps too – it’s a nice feeling eh!?
