Crumb Blocks.

I have always fancied having a go at crumb blocks and now I have the perfect opportunity. Because I did so much fussy cutting on the Laura Ashley quilt I have a big pile of oddly shaped scraps. They were just asking to be made into crumb blocks.

So this pile of fabric turned into these little beauties!
I have made 30 so far and they measure 3.5 inches square. I need at least 80 to make the quilt I have in mind. It is a good feeling though to use up all those pieces although they don't seem to be going down much!

I use to make a larger version of crumbs but got out of the habit, seeing yours I may need to re-think my TO-DO's. cw

What a great way to use all your scraps Janet. I take it a crumbs quilt is simply crazy patchwork - I haven't heard the term here. Love your work.
