Thanks to Katie — Finished!

Finished my Economy Blockalong quilt last week also!

This one was made as part of the Instagram #economyblockalong project, and I had a lot of fun sizing it down to make a dent in my batik charms stash.

I quilted it with orange Aurifil thread (color #2245) in a spiky swirl pattern. Extra blocks were inserted on the back to make the scrap of Ikea fabric large enough, and I love how that turned out.

We are giving it to a friend of ours as a thank you for all of the uniform hand-me-downs that she has passed to us since our girls have been at their school. I wanted to do something tangible to say thank you, so I sent Jerry with photos of quilts and Katie and her daughters picked their favorite. As soon as I get the label on this one, they can have it.
