Scrap Crazy 6 quilting template

This fun little project is from the “Crazy for More” book.

Crazy for More quilting project

It uses all four of the templates and the blocks are put together just as you see it. Three crazy pinwheel blocks and two borders.

I took my time with the cuttng and figured out the best way for me to cut all sides and the pesky little corners without doing a Houdini act with my ruler and cutter.

I traced each template on fabric and then turned it to fit into a rectangle that I could measure and cut. Icut the rectangles, positioned them all facing up and then cut the shapes. Here are the measurements for each:

  • Shape B = 3” x 9-1/2”

  • Shape C = 4-1/2” x 8-1/2”

  • Shape D = 2-1/5” x 5”

  • Shape A = 4-1/2” x WOF (A unilateral triangle that is the same all ways.)

Be sure to carefully cut the corners on each shape. They fit together so much better. Using a small cutting mat or a rotating mat makes this much easier.

The more I use these templates, the more ideas I have to use them. More fun to come—

Sew sincerely,
