Crazy quilting Friday

This is my crazy quilt block for this week , I used the printed muslin that Betsy sent to make this block , it sure makes the job easier .I know I need to add some decorative stitches but I was late getting this made and time ran out so that will be done later .
The second picture is the result of finding some half square triangles that I came across in my sewing storage closet ,you just never know what you will find in there ;-0 Anyway I remember making these as I cut the corners off blocks I was making for a quilt some time ago and rather than toss the triangles I immediately made the halfsquare triangles but then they have sat there for a few years until yesterday I was looking for a piece of fabric and these appeared so I went to work and sewed them together and added these borders and now I have a doll quilt top for one of my granddaughters .If I was real quick I could give it to Elise tomorrow as it is her birthday , hmm maybe if I work fast I can get this completed .I better go and get started ;-)
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by .
