Crazy pieced blocks..............

I am teaching a crazy piecing workshop on Saturday so I thought I would make some blocks in several different kinds of fabric for inspiration for the students.  The 30s reproduction blocks are trimmed with a 6 1/2" square ruler
I decided to make the solid color blocks larger so they will be cut with a 10 1/2" ruler.

I have company coming to stay for a few days so they can attend a funeral so I may only get a few more blocks made.  I have several examples of batik crazy piecing so that is 3 categories down, maybe 2 or 3 more to go.

Interesting. I am cleaning and just found a bunch of them made up and thought I should get some more made. They are fun to do. Chris

Sounds like a fun and relaxing kind of workshop, not to mention a good way to deal with small scraps.

I’ve never been a fan of crazy piecing but I like your 1930 fabrics, I think it doesn’t appeal to my ordered Libra mind set 😆

OK, I want to make one of each. It's always nice to have samples when taking a class or shopping at a quilt shop. It just helps so much to help narrow our choices. Have fun at class.

What great blocks - and how different they look with the different colors!

Crazy Fun ahead...squaring them off gives them such a polished look . Wow ~ your solids just jump off the screen. A fun Saturday class for both you and students.

As a leader-ender, I often make crazy blocks. I have a small stack of red ones and one blue one. They are certainly fun to sew.

Interesting how different the solid crazy blocks look from the prints. My very first 2 quilts, 40+ years ago, were crazy blocks from my mother's scrap collection.

Great to see the crazy blocks in two completely different fabrics, love the bright solids of course!
