BlockBase Sew Along #2354 Crazy Pieces block

BlockBase #2354 Crazy Pieces quilt block

Here is block #6 in the BlockBase Sew Along by Electric Quilt. It is called Crazy Pieces and is block #2354 in BlockBase.  I made this block 8" finished and used paper piecing to construct it.  It is very easy to sew with just four identical sections.

This is the halfway point in the Sew Along.  If you haven't started yet, you can still catch up.  If you submit a block, you are entered to win a prize for that week.  You have until December 26th at noon to link up this week's block.  The next block will be posted January 7, 2013.  Go here to see all the blocks quilters have made so far. Happy Holidays!

Block Base Sew Along #1755 Prairie Flower block

BlockBase #1755 Prairie Flower quilt block-9"

Here is block 5 in the BlockBase Sew Along hosted by Electric Quilt.  It is called Prairie Flower and is attributed to Nancy Cabot.  I love this block!  It goes together easily using the stitch and flip method for the corners of each block.  I used 3 1/2" squares to make this a 9" finished size block.  I then used 2 1/2" squares to make a 6" block from much different fabrics!  Check out other versions of this block here.
