It occurred to me that another shape of crazy quilt blocks might be interesting to stitch--something other than the traditional square block. So, on the 1st of every month I'll be posting a new square block, featuring one of my postcards from my personal collection.
On the 15th of every month, I'll be posting a hexagon-shaped block based on the the square block, and using the same postcard. Both of the blocks will be included in the 2012 index of crazy quilt blocks.
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 small, use this as a guide to piecing.
Piece the block, then embellish it with threads, trims, ribbons, and beads.
Enjoy your beautiful block!
