Here are some more crazy quilt blocks for the CJQP 2012.

Attaching crocheted motifs to fabric and then adding beads is something I have been teaching for a couple of years in my "fabric postcard" classes. I was lucky enough to get a shoebox full of old, unfinished crochet projects on ebay for only a few dollars.
Here is a yellow and green postcard I use as an example.

This is the "Easter" block of the month which has an unfortunate flash reverb.
The most interesting feature is the extension of the spring blossom branches into the surrounding fabrics. I embroidered pink flowers and green leaves over an existing floral lace.

With all this sewing going on, my children became very interested. I can unveil my daughter's first crazy quilt block. She calls it "free quilting" and I like that name.
