Sample Block, More Added
I just can't leave well enough alone here...!
But I had the idea that I could use the little leftover scraps from piecing my Jump Start Fabric Pack block...I wanted to show a few things: that sane quilting techniques can be incorporated into crazy quilting, too; in this case, fusing and machine applique. Using the piecing fabrics this way adds additional harmony to the block. Trim can be treated like fabric, not just used in a line. And yes, you can add elements by machine, placing them between patches and over hand-work, too!
I think it is important for Newbies especially to get the message that anything and everything is fair game in crazy quilting.
I could keep going on the block but I really must stop!
