"Spring CQ" is a good enough working title!
Judy S. asked if I compose all my crazy quilts this way, and the answer is yes. I put all my muslin foundation blocks up on the design wall, then take them down and piece them one by one. Sometimes I will pin a partially pieced block back up on the wall to see what it "needs" next.
Here is one block in four stages of piecing...I'm not showing step by step, just the general idea of how it goes:
This block got started in the lower left corner, and I built it out from there.
Next, I sewed chunks together....
Here are the two main chunks, ready to get pieced to the foundation...
And here is the finished block.
Many of these fabrics are from a tie manufacturer in San Rafael, California. They had a storefront and a bunch of us at the Point Bonita quilt conference last January took a field trip to buy some of their fabric samples. I stuffed a grocery bag tightly with nicely sized silk squares and paid a whopping $5.00 for it. Such a deal!
Here is the quilt so far.
I have several ideas for what will go in the center, but it seems I alway decide that last when making a crazy quilt.
