Here is a picture of my Crumbs Quilt I have put together (another flimsy, still waiting for quilting and finishing - sigh).
I made the crumbs squares as Leaders and Enders; instead of cutting the thread as I finish a seam, I sew a couple of scraps together, adding to them until I have a 4 1/2 inch square. A friend and I did a lot of these last year, we called ourselves obsessive crumbers, as at times we lost track of which project we were working on - the crumbs blocks, or the main project itself!!
Its so neat to look at each block and identify where the scraps came from.
Of course any piece of fabric larger than half inch square is OK to use - no wastage here!!
Below shows 9 of my crumbs blocks joined together and sashed.
|I think this was my record - 12 fabrics in one square!!|
ANOTHER FOOTNOTE!! Sorry, I should have mentioned that the inspiration for the crumbs came from Bonnie Hunter's fabulous Quiltville site
