I know it's a strange name for a quilt, but much of the news we hear focuses on the economy. With the constant barrage of media reports, it isn't a coincidence that I chose the traditional patchwork Economy block for this quilt. The Economy block is sewn side-by-side to Snowball blocks, so the name fit.
Both quilt blocks finish at 8-inches square and both are easy to make - perfect for beginning quilters. I've included a layout alternative for the Economy blocks, so be sure to look at that before you sew the blocks together.
