Introducing Block 54

Introducing Block 54

crazy quilt block 54Block 54 is another block made up of strong colours and tones which means it is  a dramatic block. It is also a bit difficult to photograph. It forms part of the strong diagonal band of colour that runs across the quilt.

Over the next few weeks I will focus on each seam and embellishment and I hope the  crazy quilters  out there will enjoy seeing each close up.
