FREE QUILT AS YOU GO ALONG PART 8
This week we have some fun with crazy patchwork. Crazy Patchwork has been around for centuries, it’s the process of joining small scraps of fabric together to make 1 complete textile piece.
This crazy flower block would look fantastic as a scrappy repetitive design in a quilt!
If you’re joining in with our FREE QUILT AS YOU GO ALONG you will need to make 2.
We now have 20 blocks made for our FREE QUILT AS YOU GO ALONG. Here are my blocks so far in no particular order. 16 more blocks to go, making a total of 36 blocks that will make a pretty lap size quilt.

This is what you will need to make 1 block.
Please note that this block starts at 10” and is designed to be joined together with my Easy Cover Strip Method, with the cover strip on the front or on the back of the quilt. The blocks can also be joined with the Joining Strip Technique. If you want to use the Joining Strip Technique, cut your batting to the same size as the backing square.
Follow along with the YouTube video below to see how to make your crazy patchwork block.
I love crazy Patchwork! Here are some photos of where I have used it in some of my other quilts:
The moon in our Twilight Dreaming Quilt, 2020, available as a PDF pattern.
A vase from my Blossom quilt, 2010. I should make this quilt into a PDF pattern, let me know what you think.
A heart and a flower centre from my Precious Pieces quilt, 2005. Available as a printed pattern, I might also make this a PDF pattern too.
We hope that you enjoy this week's block.
Happy sewing, Monica and Alaura xo
