Crazy Quilt Cutting Options
Some of you have been enjoying my free Crazy Quilt pattern -- it is a lot of fun and requires little skill! I had a reader ask a question about how to cut other blocks, so I thought I would address that.
I typically use a layer cake when I crazy quilt, so all of my fabric is pre-cut and coordinated. But if you decide to make this from a variety of 10" scraps, you will need to do things a little differently. And it's personal preference. You'll need 42 squares and will work in sets of four to five fabric squares. You might want to sort ahead of time (so you don't end up with two left over). 42 squares will net 42, 8.5" finished blocks.
Below I've provided some diagrams of sample cuts for sets of FOUR fabric squares. If you have a set with five fabric squares, you'll need to add one additional cut.
Hope this helps! Have fun but don't go too crazy!
