    My grandma use to make what she called a "Crazy quilt" We make blocks, she had long srips of muslem (length of her quilt to be) sewed all these odds and ends of pieces and strips to this. When all done, then sewed all the strips together. Her "Crazy Quilts" oh they were so warm. :)

    Your quilt is soooo cute! I'm sewing for NIN (Newborns in Need) and what a great idea for using my scraps in my next quilt!

    Here are the 2 that I finished a few months ago.

    The 'bent' look in the 2nd. pic is because DH was getting tired of holding up the quilt. :lol:

    Yes, I keep a stack of crumb blocks going in various stages of completion. They are mindless! Gives me a feeling of squeezing every cent worth of $ spent for fabric! Love making these little guys!

    Am heading for a wall-hanging with an applique flower on each block to kinda calm it down. At least that's what's in my head right now. Will post if ever completed!

    Nice! The circles are excellent for these blocks! Also, your applique is perfect! Please post the final 'product'. I'd love to see it.

    there are crazy quilts like Victorian crazy quilts with silk, velvet, etc. And then there are cotton crazy quilts which are like crumb quilts.

    here is an antique one I used to have.

    I do crumbs as leaders and enders when I'm working on other projects do I'm always doing a crumb quilt.

    Love that dragon fly. I'd never thought of that before. You guys are so creative.

    ptquilts, It's beautiful and I like the scalloped edges. I'll never forget the 1st crazy quilt I saw in person. It was backed with black velvet.

    So sorry about your family member. Back in the late 50's my brother fell off of his bike and fractured his scull (no bike helmets back then). He almost died but he made a full recovery and is now in his 60's. Modern medicine has progressed since then so I hope everything will be OK!!

    This is exactly why I like making the crumb quilt squares....it is relaxing because you don't really have to think too hard while doing it. I haven't actually made a quilt with them, yet, but I've been having fun making lots and lots of crumb block squares.

    Same block after trimming. The 'trimmings' go back in the pile to make more crumb blocks!

    I love your blocks in the crazy patch technique. It has wonderul fabrics and colors-yum! I consider crumb quilts slightly different, more random scrap pieces sewn in a non pattern style which is different from mile a minute techique where an odd scrap is sewn to a strip and then joined in larger sections, but whatever style you enjoy using all the scrap pieces are beautiful in the end product.

    I throw all my scraps into a bag and pull one out at a time. I sew it to the next scrap. I have only one rule and that is no two alike scraps go together. That is the only time I can put the scrap back into the bag and pull out another.
