Crazy Kites is a tradition design quilt, measuring about 52 inches wide by 45 inches tall when constructed (not including the optional border).

This could be a medallion center for a larger quilt, or finished with the optional border for a large wall quilt.

Each kite shaped block has additional pattern lines to create this traditional design as a crazy patchwork quilt.

There are nine full-size block designs included, which can be printed/copied multiple times to construct the full quilt.

Coloring black/white layouts are provided so you can re-imagine the design in a variety of ways. The design idea on the front of the pattern is shown in traditional and crazy quilt piecing colorizations.

The quilt could also be done with a different scrap of fabric for every patch within the crazy quilt rendition. If done that way, there would be about 200 different fabrics included; making this design a good choice for a 2020 Challenge quilt idea.

Specific yardage requirements will depend on your unique design choices. But, as a guide (using the cover traditional artwork design) the six colors of fabrics would be:

1 yard each of black, green, yellow, purple, pink fabrics.
1/2 yard each of rose, blue fabrics.

3 1/2 yards for backing (if border is included)
1 1/2 yard for black border (optional)
1/2 yard for binding (black recommended)

If constructing the quilt as a crazy quilt, additional muslin/broadcloth in a white/neutral color is needed as a foundation fabric layer (instead of batting). Recommend 6 yards (5.5 if fabric is 45" wide) be purchased. Medium weight fusible interfacing can be substituted for this foundation fabric layer as well.
