Crazy Quilt 2011. Jewel Tone

All the blocks are done now on the quilt from last year.
The next stage of putting them together will most likely take me awhile, so a few more close-ups and  an all-together shot.







Will take a better shot soon.

Happy Jewel-tone Stitching

I am new to the crazy quilting thing, but my question is, does everyone use the same pattern for setting up the blocks? They look the same and if so where do I get a copy of the pattern. I am very excited to try my first block. Yours are beautiful!

Hi Kelliejo. There is no pattern for crazyquilting per se. They all look similar as we all use a similar process.
Start with a centre piece of 4 or 5sides and Stitch across raw seams in a rotating manner.
It is sometimes called the stitch and flip method. Stitch the seam. Flip it over and iron flat.Then trim.
These are all done on a base block.
Hope this helps.
I may put up a step-by-step on the blog shortlyfor beginners.
Regards Phillipa
