    Define crumb. I have seen a quilt made from the odd shapes leftover from appliques. All sewn together any which way to create fabric & then trimmed to squares. Most of the pieces finished were about the size of my thumbnail. I know I'd never have the patience to do that.

    my crumb is going to be of all sizes that i receive... Crazy Crumb........ so there may be a 3 inch square or a 1 inch or even a strip........ received some pieces already and it is interesting to see what other people sew with.

    I've done a few crumbs inspired by threads like these. Most of my crumbs truly are crumbs ... teeny tiny itsy bitsy pieces put together.
