To A Friend Crazy Quilt Block for Diane

Originally posted in 2016, this was for my friend, Diane Haigh. She was a terrific friend to me and to many in the online crazy quilting community. She has certainly been missed. I will always remember her kindness and caring. 

Here's a crazy quilt block featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection. It's FF111 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 (1-1, 1-2 and 2-1, 2-2 and 3-1, 3-2). Treat as one piece of fabric for 1, 2 and 3. Stitch two pieces of fabric together (4-1, 4-2 and 4-3, 4-4) then sew those two pieces together. Treat as one piece of fabric for 4.

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