    is there a right or wrong way of sewing crumbs??? I see one of sewing all on a strip. others sew how ever and then square them and put then all together with or without framing the squares.. hmmmmmmmmmmmm

    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.

    Rules? You think there are rules?
    Silly woman!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    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.

    I love, love, love crumb blocks and usually end up making the 3 1/2" size because of the size pieces I use. The tutorial posted on page 1 is the same way I make mine blocks, but it's really individual...whatever you enjoy and what looks pretty to you? Happy "crumbing"! :)

    I think they are so liberating, no fretting whether your seams are 1/4" or if two fabrics clash and so quick to make!

    Scraphappy: I haven't taken any yet of the mini pinks, but will do later on :thumbup:

    I am loving seeing everyone's crumb quilts..great work everyone!! :D :D :D

    Here are the few 4.5"...(I lied above, getting mixed up with the scrappy I am doing at the minute which is made up of 3.5" 4P & HST's lol!) crumb blocks in pinks/whites

    :-D

    Includes lots of vintage Laura Ashley fabrics which a dear friend gave to me!
