    I finished 2 crumb quilts about 2 months ago.

    For a while now, I have been back and forth to the hospital almost every day visiting a family member who has a brain injury. I want to make another crumb quilt to take my mind off the worry. They are just mindless sewing and let me feel productive without having to concentrate on the layout.
    Started the 'crumbs' last night after getting home. I got 2 done. They aren't trimmed but I'm trying for a 7.5" unfinished block.

    Anyone else working on a CQ now?

    Have to agree with you, sewing up a bunch of crumb blocks is a greaat way to help with your current stress levels, I do it all the time. Too many projects going right now to make any crumbs but when these projects are finished I'll have lots of crumbs to use.

    i have an (on-going) crumb--but i've been making yo-yo's lately- another (mindless) good for waiting (pass-time)
    and for some reason i am really enjoying the process.
    been sitting at hospice house the past couple weeks.
