Love the look of this charming crazy block and the quilt-as-you-go process. Instructions call for making just a 10 inch square block. I imagine that several 10 inch blocks could easily be combined to make a larger quilt. Reminiscent of Victorian crazy quilts just without the embroidery overlay over each seam. Great scrappy project.

I love crazy quilting. I have always made all my blocks on a square of fabric. After sewing them together, I put a backing on & then tied them together. I am going to try this method. It sounds so much simpler. Thanks for the info.

I love making tote bags from denim and corduroy for Silent Auctions for various charities. I have in the past added pockets made from quilt orphans donated to me by various quilters. As I line the totes with colourful cottons, I've got lots of scraps to make lovely pockets from this crazy 'quilt as you go' style. Thanks for the tips!

Very nice. I am going to make a quilt but how do you sew the squares together?

Decide how big your blocks will be and square them up with a large square ruler and rotary cutter, then play with the squares like a puzzle and put them together however you find them to look best. You can't go wrong!
