ALYOF: Econoblock top

on July 30, 2014

I haven’t been feeling well lately, so not much sewing or posting has been going on. However, last week I did finish my economy block top, my goal for this month. I actually finished it twice. I finished, decided I wanted it longer, and busted out another twenty blocks over the next couple days to make it a little longer. I am not sure it made much difference in the end, but made me feel better. It’s taken me this long to find the energy and light to get a picture taken. I wanted to show some of my favorite blocks too, but that will have to wait for the grand finish. I’d also hoped to be showing the back in this post, but again, have not been up to the sewing.


I got real good at matching those points, and am pretty happy with my work overall. Like most of my quilts, I mostly randomly assembled the rows. Some similar colors/patterns/designers ended up closer together than I might have liked, but that is the nature of randomness, and it was just too hard to try to keep all of those things intentionally evenly spaced. Hopefully I will be up to sewing again soon.
