Crazy Quilt 3D Egg Directions:

NEED:
12 1/2" x 12 1/2" Unbleached Muslin Square
Scrappy fabrics for the crazy quilted block measuring 9 x 11
Batting (warm n natural perferred for this project) 9 x 11

A Crazy Quilted block is very easy to make... you can machine piece using a foundation or just by adding strips of fabric and cutting even and adding another strip of fabric etc... Create a 9 x 11 inch crazy quilt block...

Next - trace pattern (click here for template) to freezer paper or use whatever method you like for transfering a pattern. Place it on the crazy quilt block and cut out the egg shape. Cut right to the line - do not worry about turning edges or 1/4" seams or anything...

Next - Cut the same egg shape out of a piece of batting

Now take your background square 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" unbleached muslin and lay it flat on the table. Layer your batting and egg piece together with the egg on top. Lay it in the center of the background fabric and pin towards the center a little so that you can sew around the inner edge about 1/4" and not hit any pins.

Next - Top Stitch 1/8" to 1/4" in from the edge all the way around the egg (see pattern) and viola you are done!

Emblish??? You can add any decorative stitching or emblishments as long as your egg block can be washed. So make sure your emblishments are fully attached!

You now have an adorable crazy quilted 3D Egg perfect to exchange with others... When these get washed the outside will fray a little and that is what you want so do not worry about those raw edges...
