Red crazy piecing.........

Crazy piecing makes a big mess on the sewing table but it is worth it.  This pile was about twice this size when I started sewing.

This is what a block looks like before trimming.

with trimmings

nice and neat!

All seven blocks.

I hand basted this wallhanging yesterday afternoon.  

I also cut and pieced backing for the X quilt that I added the border to Tuesday.  I got the roll of batting out and am ready to cut it.  I needed to finish the basting first since that is the set of tables I cut the batting on.
