Let Me Take Baby Mother Crazy Quilt Block from Vintage Vogue

We're celebrating a new addition to our extended family this month! Sawyer Jackson Luffy was born on September 1st. It was a wonderful day for Ashley and Jack Luffy, and for our entire family, too.

Here's a crazy quilt block featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection. It's P106 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). Treat as one piece of fabric for 1. Stitch three pieces of fabric together (4-1, 4-2 then add 4-3 and 5-1, 5-2 then add 5-3). Treat as one piece of fabric for 4 and 5.

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