I love the email from " Craft Gossip" I get about many types of bloggers who make all kind of goodness and then share their ideas with us.
I have shared this with you from Comfortstitching: Crazy Quilt by " Aneela, a fabric moda designer"

crazy scrappy block tutorial and a maybe quilt a long
Last week I decided I needed to start something new to keep my overflowing scrap box in order and there would no better way to do it than to start another crazy scrappy quilt.
To make your block, select a fabric for the centre, this piece needs to have 5 sides, so slice off a couple of corners if necessary.
Starting with any side you please, find a scrap that measures slightly longer than the side and stitch the two pieces together.
Continue working around clockwise in a log cabin kind of style, trimming and adding as you go. I press my seams open after each addition to keep things as flat and neat as possible.
To stop your corners becoming too square as you go round, occasionally chop them off. This keeps everything nice and vortex like which is what makes this block look different to the log cabin style.
It's also good to throw in pieced strips now and again, this will up the scrapilisciousness as well as bust down that scrap pile.
An 11" square ruler (if such a thing exists) would be great here but I don't have one, so I just keep going until my block is at least 11" square all around and then trim.
