Free Crazy quilt block patterns
In the process of documenting the seam decorations on this quilt, as I get to each block I am diagramming it out for readers as a free crazy quilt pattern. Links to these free pattern pages are listed on the CQ details FAQ page.
I have only just started on Crazy Quilting and am happy that I have put together my first block! I have been inspired by what I have seen you and others do!
