I've reconsidered how I was designing my crazy quilt blocks for this year's series, and I've decided to post the same postcard image during the month, adapted into three different shapes for those of you who like to stitch something different.
On the 1st of the month, the block will be square. On the 11th, I'll post the same block redesigned into a hexagon. On the 21st, I'll post the same block redesigned into a diamond. All three of the blocks will be included in the 2012 index of crazy quilt blocks. Make just one block, or two, or all three!
Here's an easy foundation-pieced crazy quilt block, featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection - NY102. It's just one of the images from my Vintage Postcard CD.
Print this block directly onto computer printer fabric with your inkjet printer, then use it as the foundation for your crazy quilt block with the center image already in place. If you want to make your block larger or smaller, use this as a guide to piecing.
Piece the block, then embellish it with threads, trims, ribbons, and beads.
Enjoy your beautiful block!
