Love it, Jo! Every year there seems to be a quilt/block that grabs everyone - a couple of years ago it was the Swoon, last year was the Scrappy Trip Along and this year it is the Economy block!

Mymble

These are great Jo- I think you and I must have taken the same "focal" print appreciation course (LOL) because I have all but the carousel print:). Do you know how you are going to use your blocks yet? Not that you have to...these are so deliciously fun to sew:)

Kat

Caribousmom , maybe it is because they look like a gift in a box inside another box? Fun and playful, I like them!

HawkFan

what fun prints you have - love the carousel!

ArloDeanQuilts

Love the carousel center!

Menolly13

So fun! I love the mermaid block!

Joke

Caribousmom Seeing all the swoon quilts (after the fact) really tempted into making my own Swoon. I wish there was another Swoon along to motivate to actually make it!!
Mymble lol, how crazy! I think I'm going to end up with a 6x6 children's quilt.
HawkFan ArloDeanQuilts That fabric is on a piece full of circus things; somehow I want to make a quilt incorporating all the circusyness !!
Menolly13 I'm pretty sure it's a print from Michael Miller. I wish I had more of it!!

HawkFan

I haven't seen that fabric. I have some Japanese prints that have circusy designs that I plan to use in these blocks.

Carolmarie They're so easy and fun to do!

True

Such fun blocks!

cally68

These look great!

Joke

cally68 True thanks!! I've nearly got the top put together. I used the b+w photo to change the contrast of the darks and lights a little :D

cally68

I went to the quilt shop yesterday and bought fabric just because I thought it was perfect for economy blocks. Uh oh... I caught the bug!

Joke

Can't wait to see your blocks cally68 ! wink

HawkFan

cally68 I've done the same thing - there are so many fabrics out there that are perfect for this block.

Joke - can't wait to see how these look all together. I use the b&w photo trick too. It really helps!

Joke

HawkFan I'm going to baste it today and hopefully start quilting! I have an idea for quilting it but I might need to add to it depending on how it goes (I was going to do orange peels between each block intersection but then the eye-spy part will be "empty") but I don't know if the space will end up too large not being quilted, so I'll have to see how it goes when I start.

Skynme

Too cute! What a great little quilt, I just love it!

Aizome

Fun fussy cut centers!

True

What a great quilt these have made!

Whatthebobbin

Cute!

cally68

This came out great! It makes me want to start mine.

Terrysim

Oh, this is just too fun! Love your colors and fabrics, and the final layout is perfect. I think I am catching the bug!!

HawkFan

Love the finished quilt!!
