Project

Crazy Quilt Block 1 b

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I think this one is truer to the template but I'm going to embellish both of the blocks to explore the difference between one that has lots of patterns on it and one that does not. What advice would you give someone starting this project? See notes above about cutting straighter lines and lifting & adjusting fabric as you sew the seams. If you do the latter, however, make sure you know where you are on the template and that you leave enough fabric for all needed seams!

What you will need

  • Standard quilting materials and those listed in course.

Q&A with Marie Withrow

Grammaco asked:
Thanks! Now I may have to sign up for that class also!! Love it.
Marie Withrow answered:
It is a great class. After learning how to make the blocks the teacher also covers embroider which is where the real fun begins!
memawcrystal asked:
I love this block and the first one you did. They are both beautiful ! I love the second fabric with those birds and the colors.
Marie Withrow answered:
Thank you! It's so true to buy fabrics that you love....which is often recommended in quilting arts books. I was traveling some time ago and came upon a little quilt shop where I found this set of fabrics on sale for very little. I had no idea what I would do with it but it was too pretty (and too inexpensive) to pass up. And at least two years later there it was for this little project! I have more to work into other things. For me, it's part of the fun of fabric arts!
Ma Lou asked:
Nice to find another Withrow who's a quilter! I love your fabric choices.
Marie Withrow answered:
Hi Ma Lou! My husband's grandmother was an avid quilter and we have many of her quilts all done by hand. I am new to quilting and love it -but certainly by machine! Thanks for stopping by - did your Withrows come from the Greenbrier, WV area?
