To My Valentine from Your Cousin Charles Crazy Quilt Block from Vintage Vogue

Here's a crazy quilt block featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection.  It's V124 from my Vintage Postcard CD.

Print the 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.

To use this foundation pattern, align the edge of your fabric with the dotted line and sew on the straight line.  Flip the fabric over and press toward the dotted line.  Stitch two pieces of fabric together (2-1, 2-2 and 3-1, 3-2 and 4-1, 4-2).  Treat as one piece of fabric for 2, 3 and 4.  Stitch three pieces of fabric together (5-1, 5-2 then add 5-3).  Treat as one piece of fabric for 5.

Piece the block, then embellish it with threads, trims, ribbons and beads.
