|Crazy Quilt Star|
Nancy described this block as being "a rather recent addition to the family of star patterns."
The Crazy-Quilt Star block is a great one for using lots of scraps as each of the sixteen star points is made from a different fabric. Or, as Nancy put it, "this design affords ample opportunity for utilizing the many small pieces of prints reposing in your scrap bag."
There is a copy of a pattern by Nancy Cabot here that is called Crazy Star. The block pieces are exactly the same as the Crazy-Quilt Star pieces but the block is to be made from only three fabrics. My guess is that she sold her Crazy Star pattern at a later date.
I paper pieced my 6" block. These are the pieces I used.
I sewed them together in this order-
Have you noticed that the center of the Crazy-Quilt Star block is the Beautiful Star block from February 8, 1933? I love both blocks!
