Crazy Quilt

Miriam was busy at Saturday Sewing and in addition to binding a Veteran Quilt she made her cotton block for the Crazy Quilt we are making for another Veteran Quilt.

She purchased fabric with the lines printed for foundation piecing.

Foundation piecing with cotton fabrics.

Almost finished...

Miriam is also making a set of blocks using fancy fabrics,
and embellishing with decorative stitches. 
Miriam, will you please leave a comment with information about where
you got the foundation fabric? This is such a good idea and others
 may want to start their own Crazy Quilt using printed fabric.
Cold days are good for sewing!
UPDATE:  Miriam just called to tell me she tried to leave a comment and it didn't work.
The foundation fabric by BENARTEX is called "Foundation by the Yard" and comes in several block designs. It is sold by the panel. She found it at Patchwork Plus in Dayton, VA and is going to get enough for us to each make a FANCY block, in addition to our cotton block. Won't that be fun!  Miriam's fancy blocks are very inspiring!  See below.
