When I found grandma Mae’s economy quilt video tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Company, YouTube, I had to make it! This fabulous video tutorial includes many tips for beginners, such as pinning, pressing, trimming, consistency, and seam ripper tips. The instructions Jenny gives in her video will guide you step by step through measuring your fabric squares and cutting them precisely to make sewing and assembly as easy as possible. There are tips to help you color code and trim the blocks so they will fit evenly into this fabulous quilt that is called the periwinkle plates quilt, which is a name that I love because it reminds me of the old days of Rock & Roll in the glorious time in America, where Kansas City was the hot spot for many entertainers. However, you slice it grandma Mae’s economy quilt block pattern is pure Americana, just like Jenny Doan herself, what an American sweetheart!
