Scraps have feelings too! LOL!

You can see that the leaves are starting to fall.  I will be raking and raking very soon.  In the mean time, this quilt demanded to be photographed and given due credit, for going from the pretzel bin/crumb storage, to this quilt!  It was lots of fun for me to just choose another piece, sew it on, trim off the edges, then use the little pieces trimmed off to repeat the process.  So there you go! A whole quilt top straight from the crumb bin!  By the way?  If you want some crumbs to add to your quilting endeavors, don't hesitate to speak up!


Please see the Crazy Mom Quilts blog, here...she has a quilt along for a crumb quilt (my mom's word for this scrap quilt.), but Amanda Jean calls it the "Scrap Vortex!"    Just super fun sewing and not a lot of stressing!!




The fall time zinnias, intertwined now with the tomatoes,  are growing and growing!  I think they enjoy the cooler weather.

 My poor tomatoes are just about gone, yet these little babies are still trying to produce.  I found a tomato horn worm yesterday that could have swallowed Dallas, it was so big, yesterday!  Not really...but it was all of 3 inches long and FAT!!



Hope you are having a lovely day!

I have a small bin of crumbs and strips that I will gladly send to someone. Let me know if you have more names than crumbs.

Nice work on the crumb quilt. As a child I was fascinated with the "tomato worms". They really are big!

So cute! I love the idea of getting rid of 'trash' (scraps), yet being able to enjoy them for a long time! That would be a fun quilt for a child, but it would also be great for an oldie to cuddle under this winter. I need to make one too; maybe I will. ---"Love"
