Crumby quilts are fun!
Would you believe it? I still have some crumbs left in the old pretzel tin!! I made these blocks, all straight edged pieces. ( I have a bag of curvey pieces...for another crumb quilt...someday) These blocks are kind of like the old mile a minute blocks, I think. I sewed the sashing and corner stones all together between last night and this morning. I love it!! In person, it has much more electricity than in the pictures.
A close up...the blocks are 6x8 inch finished, made of two halves 4x6 inch, of crumb pieces trimmed to size. Then I bordered each block, then made the sashing. I made two other corner stones and sashing sets before I settled on this setting!! So those will go into other quilts. Nothing wasted...
And the whole thing. I will finish it up with a bright scrappy binding, which is already made. Wheewwwww!! Now maybe I can think about the Bonnie Hunter Quiltville Mystery quilt!!! I am so up in the air about what fabrics, etc to use on that mystery...still thinking!!
Thank you for your kindness and wise words and prayers for me on my last post. Each of you mean the world to me...thank you for sharing your hearts.
