Economy Block

I just finished my second block for the quilt that is being made for President Obama. It is called “Economy” and I chose it out of the Yvonne M. Khin book of patterns mentioned in my post earlier today. I added hand embroidery in the center square to further emphasize the title of the block. It seemed to fit the current situation in America… and the struggle that faced our new President even before he took office.
The quilt for President Obama is currently in Round One of several rounds. If you are interested in participating by making a few blocks, please contact me by leaving a comment on this post.

    I never do anything by hand on my quilts except for the binding. So, to answer your question, I do my applique by machine. I think it's because I already have so many different handwork projects… but I would love to do needleturn applique one of these days…
