Economy Blocks

I've been seeing Economy Blocks all over the place on the internet lately.  We used to call them 'square in a square' blocks.  Who decided to change the name?  Just wondering.  I decided to make a few of these blocks this morning, sort of like 15 minutes of play.  I thought they might get my mojo going.  But so far I have done these three blocks and nothing else.  I just used the fabrics I had close at hand.  I really like them and I know I will make some more soon.  But now back to the Trip Around the World quilt.


Yesterday I gathered up my fabrics to complete that quilt.  It took me awhile, but I finally found all of the fabrics I needed and I managed to complete one more row of the quilt.  Now I have to make some strata so I can continue.  I don't enjoy making them.  Don't know why... they are super easy to do.

It's Friday already!  Can you believe that?  This month is going by quickly.

Have a Wonderful Weekend, everyone!

Sometimes I find that easy = boring, so maybe that is your issue too! Your square-in-a-square blocks are nice. Maybe "economy" is just easier to say?

That is one of those blocks with more than one names. I think I first heard of it as Economy back in the 1970s.
This month IS flying by!

Those economy blocks pop up all over the internet. They are irresistible, but I alwo wonder why the name has changed.
