Pattern for Block 84 of I Dropped the Button Box Quilt

Crazy quilt block 84Block 84 is a far more softer coloured block as it is part of the pastel lighter toned blocks help to form the diagonal pattern that runs across the quilt.

I like this block even though I am not really pastel sort of person. There are a couple of really fun seam embellishments on this block and as charms go one of my all time favourites are on this block. I personally like the baby shoes that are on it.

Can you see them? They are really tiny at about one eighth of an inch long. That is small! To see what I mean click on the photo of the block and you will see a larger version. The block is a 6 inch block and you can see the shoes are smaller than a bugle bead. Lots of people never spot them but when someone does they usually go OH….  and that makes me smile.

Over the next few week or so I will be sharing the details from this block I hope readers enjoy it.
