Since I'm putting my Marie Antoinette CrazyQuilt together, I thought I would share step by step, the process that I use to assemble my crazyquilts. I know other crazyquilters have shared their process but I'm sure we all do things a little differently.
How To Assemble A Crazyquilt
The first step is to trim and square up the blocks. I use a self-healing mat and a rotary cutter:
I always allow a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Again, many crazyquilters leave the traditional seam allowance of 1/4 inch. I prefer to leave a 1/2 inch seam for crazyquilts. The reason for this is due to the variety of fabrics and thicknesses. A 1/2 seam will lay flat no matter what fabrics are used.
