What are you most proud of? I've been crazy quilting for a few years now and enjoy learning new ways of patching blocks. While the the template method isn't my favorite one, I'm pleased to add it to my "bag of tricks."

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I'd never pieced a crazy block before, I would use all cotton fabric; I would make my blocks 9 1/2 inches and then cut them down to the prescribed size (8 1/2"); and, I would start with block 4, which is the easiest to piece.

You have got the block techniques down...can't wait to see what comes next. ;-)
