Grandma Mae’s Economy Block from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Grandma Mae's Economy Block Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Mae Emma Plumb was a talented lady. 

She sewed and painted and baked excellent pies. She kept a lovely flower garden and volunteered countless hours crafting costumes and planning skits for the local Boy Scout troop. And, best of all, she made quilts. 

Years and years have passed – four generations, in fact – but by some magic, one of Mae’s quilts still exists. It belongs to Mae’s great-granddaughter Kate, our very own Missouri Star marketing manager.

2020 Antique Block Challenge from Humble Quilts

Here are the quilts from the challenge I put out last year in Houston and then recently to any reader of Humble Quilts. We started with a vintage block and created from there. 
I'm calling mine Licorice Allsorts, since the pink and black reminded me of that candy.  I shared a sneak peak of the zig zag border. I use this border treatment a lot. It looks more complicated than it is. 
Next up in Lizzy's  Here's the link to her blog post sharing more about her challenge quilt- HERE

Here's her pretty split backing.

Itty Bitty Basket Blocks from Humble Quilts

My lovely online friend Mary B had these adorable little blocks. These are hers pieced into a top. 

She was generous enough to ask if I'd like 12 to make my own sweet quilt. Thank you Mary! 
Here are mine!

A little wonky and completely charming! They measure about 4". 

I hope you are being inspired by the Holiday Favorites Blog hop! I know I am!

Be sure to hop on over to Timeless Reflections blog

And see what she's up to today!

Have an amazing weekend!

More of Houston Quilt Show from Humble Quilts

Here is an antique block I purchased from Mary Koval-I'd love to have more than one block, but that's about all I can afford! LOL  It is so sweet. I think the upper right was supposed to have a red bud but the maker ran out of room. The top and left will be difficult to do much with since the applique is right up to the edge of the quilt. For now I am enjoying it on my design wall. 

And if you are interested: 

Here are a few categories that YOU can enter quilts in. This ...
