Best Wishes Crazy Quilt Block

This is the time of year to wish good fortune to new graduates. If you're celebrating that milestone with family or friends, here's an easy foundation-pieced crazy quilt block, featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection - F210. It's just one of the images from my Vintage Postcard CDs.

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. Add the Bird finding after piecing and embroidery.

Enjoy your beautiful block!

This is the 18th in my series of crazy quilt blocks. Click on any block in this index to view the PDF file and print out the block.
