Mary Z's crazy quilt blocks

Post by gershwin64 » Thu Apr 16, 2020 10:54 am

Here are Mary Z's crazy quilt blocks. I think they are so cool!!
Tina

Thanks, Tina, for posting my photo. I was unable to get on QIAD with my phone. These are 5-1/2" blocks. I jokingly said I was going to make a special project during the Covid quarantine - a crazy quilt! And Jana said, "Let's all do it! 5-1/2" blocks!" And so it began. This photo is my first 5. I want to make a king sized quilt so I need 441 (21x21 setting). I've cut 5-1/2" muslin squares for the base of the block and am sewing on scraps however they fit. When this project is over I really WILL be crazy! :lol: MZ

Thanks for sharing. Thanks to Tina for assistance.
Mary, you are so clever. This might even work for doing a table runner or table topper. Smaller projects work best for me. Might have to give this a try.
I suppose we could use just about any size base. Might try 8 1/2. ???
Is there a formula for choosing the base size to accomplish a certain size of finished block?
I think we have to add the 1/2 inch to allow for seam. Am I right?

Those ARE crazy but should make a great, lively quilt. It'll be a biggie, too.
