Best Wishes Crazy Quilt Block from Vintage Vogue

Best Wishes!

Here's a crazy quilt block featuring one of my favorite postcards from my personal collection. It's F114 from my Vintage Postcard CD.

Download the PDF file. Print the block directly onto computer printer fabric with your inkjet printer, then use it as the foundation for your crazy quilt block with the center image already in place. When printing, use the "Actual Size" in your printer's settings for an 8" finished block.

To use this foundation pattern, align the edge of the wrong wide of your fabric with the dotted line and sew on the straight line. Flip the fabric over and press toward the dotted line.

Stitch two pieces of fabric together (2-1, 2-2). Treat as one piece of fabric for 2. Stitch three pieces of fabric together (4-1, 4-2, 4-3 and 5-1, 5-2, 5-3). Treat as one piece of fabric for 4 and 5.

Piece the block, then embellish it with threads, trims, ribbons and beads.
