Block 6 – Economy Block Modified for Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! Block 6 is Economy Block Modified. The modification are those corner squares which link with the connector block to give that beautiful faux on point setting.  It’s a fairly simple block. I also added the instructions for the border half blocks. You will make 20 of them.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I will show you a pretty Valentine’s quilt I made about five years ago. It’s still one of my favorites. I wrote about the quilt and the bears in an AccuQuilt blog post and it has a full tutorial on how the bears are embroidered. I digitized the Candy Hearts embroidery and the quilting was hand guided on my longarm. The bears are a pattern from Dolls and Daydreams.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. Majorie, thanks so much for this week’s block and for the border blocks. I am having so much fun with this QAL. Your Valentine quilt is awesome!

    1. Thank you Kathy, I’m having fun with this one too. Some of the blocks are just fun for all of us while others are challenging for the new quilters. I love that Valentine quilt – it’s one of my favorites of all I’ve done. And I rarely do that kind of quilting anymore. It was easier to do with my smaller midarm machine and now my machine is a little heavy for that or I’m a little weaker – LOL!
