Blockbase Sew Along #6

My block for the Blockbase Sew Along held over at the EQ blog 'Behind the Mouse':

This is #2354 of Barbara Brackmann's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Block Patterns and is called Crazy Pieces. Now I am not going to pretend...had some major hassles with the matching of the points and had to undo this a couple of times.

Here are all of my 6 blocks. I think I need to go a bit easy on the white background and build in a bit more variety in the next few blocks. Not sure whether the dark red in the Kaleidoscope block goes with all the rest of it...will have to wait and see, I still have some darker fabric to use up from my Moda Jelly roll.

So far this is looking pretty interesting.

Until next time



  1. I am very impressed with your points. I still struggle to get all my points lined up.
    This is a lovely block and I love the way that the colours stand out or blend in. I am really looking forward to seeing all the blocks all together, I am sure that the red one will work in the end, I really like it at the moment.

  2. Hi... yes, the points were a bit of a bugger on this one and I struggled with that. Given the white background it was fairly obvious, so that's why I undid it a couple of times to get it right, otherwise I probably would have left it.

  3. Hi Karin, Thanks for visiting my blog. yes, yes, this time my points were hard to match, also had to undo, do, undo, do.... and I used the foundation paper... Maybe it was because of all the Christmas Sweets...
    Have a wonderful year with lots of sewing and birds coming to say hello to you!
