Crazy Patch Quilt Block
By Mimi Shimp
The Crazy Patch quilt block is not only a great addition to a wedding-themed quilting project, but it also offers a great opportunity to use up all of that leftover fabric you have lying around. The block is part of the Hearts, Bars & Shooting Stars quilt design. Download the Crazy Patch quilt block as a PDF to print out the pattern. You'll need to enlarge the quilt block at 125%.
To make the Crazy Patch quilt block:
Background: Cut 1. A-I: Cut 1 each from a few different fabrics.
Stitch A to B, then stitch AB to C. Stitch D to E, then stitch DE to F. Stitch G to H, then stitch GH to I. Stitch rows together to form heart. Cut fusible webbing heart.
