Love this! I agree the white strips are perfect. Really makes it all come together and not over whelming.
I love this. One of my favorite blocks!
Love crumb quilts. I feel like it's "making" fabric. Love your version, wonderful use of very small scraps.
I've done that pattern and love it. Yours are gorgeous in the different colors
Love it. Lots of work I'm sure. I like the way the white strips gives it a break.
Also AnnE is correct. When sewing strips so down. Take down end flip it to the top and sew next strip. Keep doing this throughout. . It will make your strips lay much better.
Hear is a easy way to figure that. I don't get five out of it. Draw 5 lines x1.5 = 7.5 --minus the .75 on the three middle seams=6.75 before it sewn to the next blocks bc your edges are unused. There's no way to get a square out of that if u r using 5 and a half long. You would have to use 4 strips and not 5 or use strips longer than 5and a half. When u cut the completed strip then iron one set up and the other down. They should lay into each other perfectly then.
In my church we say, it all works out in the quilting.
I did a baby quilt like this one time. and I had problems, too. Be sure you sew each strip in the opposite direction. I think that will help a little. I did that and still had some trouble putting them together (each block going in opposite directions). Over the years, I have gotten pretty good at squeezing and stretching to make them match. I don't know how other people do it, because I am very careful in my cutting and in my sewing. I hope this helps a little.
joym RE: fly geese, I always had trouble with it, until discovered fly geese ruler now my quilts are much better.
I have made some of the "quilt as you go" lap quilts years ago. It's quite easy but yes, the seams are a tad bulky. You can always topstitch them down after sewing the pieces together and pressing them out. It's a quick way to make smaller quilts but I wouldn't recommend it for larger quilts. It's more for "utility" sake. There are many youtube videos on how to do this but most are for small projects like placemats.
I love it! I will put this on my to do list. One question though. How do you keep the batting from moving?
I don't understand how did you get the third color, did you miss a step somewhere or did I miss a step? love your quilt Nise

Beautiful, beautiful quilt. Wonderful idea putting stimulating textures into the quilt!
Very pretty quilts. It is neat how you made them look so different with the same fabrics.
Love the quilts! Sew very bright and happy!
