    To each his own! Like abstract art.. There is some odd art out there that sales for millions that I wouldn't give you $5.00 for..Just not my taste..I would rather have a crumb than a star quilt..I just don't like stars quilts at all..but there are some pretty ones out there!!

    Katfish, thanks for the link. I would love to snuggle under something like that. I have never made a crumb quilt but I am keeping my scraps and fully intend to. I think there is something satisfying about following in the footsteps of past quilters, a different time when quilting was a economical pass time and a way to give your family comfort when resources were limited.

    I looked at your quilt...must admit, never heard the term crumb quilt before...but my mother-in-law made utility crazy quilts that used the same kind of fabrics...my personal preferance is a little bit of solids in between so much pattern, but that's probably because I want to embelish...here's a sample of what she had done...lots of squares, and then I put them together to make a bed quilt. It has no embroidery or other embelishing. Is this what you mean by crumb quilt?

    Loving any quilt is a personal choice...maybe that's why there are so many styles! each to his/her own...I can appreciate all kinds of quilts...but that doesn't mean I have the inclination to do any of them. Sane quilts intimidate me!!!! I don't have the organized mind to do all those points and lines! Crazy quilts lets me go free!!!!
    It's good that we all do different things so we can share with others.

    No, I don't consider it snobbish at all. I am not too crazy about them either, but only because I have so much other fabric that needs to be used up before I go to the crumbs. I have too much trouble combining coordinated fabrics, I can't imagine myself trying to combine crumbs into something appealing.

    You are not a snob. There are patterns and fabrics that all of us do not like and if that makes a snob then I guess we are all snobs.

    I love crazy/strip quilts B/C I have freedom to be free!!! I've joined the Pinwheel Project that started Feb. 10th and it's the first time I've tried anything that has to match lots of points - I'm having fun - but don't know if I would do it again. I do like to sash my crazy blocks because I have trouble 'seeing' them when they all run together.

    Repeat after me; I do not like crumb quilts. I vow to not ofend the people that do like crumb quilts. We also will not violate your interests but applaud that we can all live together and appreciate all types of quilts.

    I'm not much of a crumb fan either but I can appreciate all the work it takes. There are others who can't stand the Sun Bonnet Sue and I think she is a doll, never made one but I like em. I used to never use more than three or four prints in a quilt and now I love scrappy so my taste has changes over the years.

    I love them all except the art quilts. They are fabric art and not quilts to me. It is all about personal taste.

    I looked at your "crumb" quilt... looks like a crazy quilt to me...
    I'm not a fan of scrappy quilts but I have seen some lovely scrappy quilts... I think it depends on the pattern and fabric arrangement.

    I am enjoying doing some crumb blocks. Use up the bits of fabrics I can't throw away! I am having fun, and I do plan on making lots of these, and making quilts for charity. Will add solid colored squares to help it along~ :)

    No, not a snob at all. The great thing about quilting is there is something for everyone...I love scrappy, crumby, multi-texture and crazy, but also have an appreciation of traditional and OBW. Bargello's are not my thing, but I do admire any I see here and know what a lot of work goes into them. Beware though, crumbs have a way of drawing you in.
