Crazy Quilt for Project Linus

Another quilt for Project Linus. The basic squares for this one was done in a crazy quilt template. The crazy patchwork is done on a foundation piece of lightweight cotton. The pattern is usually random. The center of each patchwork square is a pentagon. Other geomentric shapes (triangular) are used. I thought it would be a great idea to practice embellishment with Crazy Quilt stitches. I wasn’t brave enough to try beading, buttons, or lace. However, I did add appliques to each corner.

Once the squares were completed, a layer of batting and a flannel backing were used. The corners were rounded and a bias binding was attached.
