    I probably have tons of crumbs- but not exactly sure what they are- bitty pieces leftover, right??
    Dumb in Ohio :D

    Out of all the 'crumbs' I've seen - I like yours the best!

    you get a chain piecing rythym going. The pressing isn't hard, but there is a lot of trimming.

    How big do you consider a crumb? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I think I might collage them onto fusible stuff & make notecards or cut out to be gift cards too.

    Since I have become a maniac quilter I would like some quilt note cards. Maybe at American Craft museum or online?

    Bonnie Hunter's site is wonderful and SHE IS GREAT IN PERSON!

    DEBRA: Your blocks look like they're quilted. Are they? Your instructions don't go that far.

    Thanks - This would be a perfect project for a sewing machine that's sitting all alone in a separate room. :(

    yes, they are quilted. They're each about the size of a fat quarter. That's what they're backed with. They are backed with inexpensive "what was I thinking when I bought this" fat quarters ;-)

    I quilted aprox a 1.5" grid. I work on these when I'm between projects or don't know what to make next. They are my threapy quilts ;-) Sometimes I just sew aimlessly when I'm in a funk. Like going for a drive and not knowing where you'll end up.

    These are great, I would sew them together and make a quilt with them. I was going to save scraps and make one, I forgot about it and threw small trimmings away, now I have to go through my wastecan and retrieve the ones in there. I think they would make a beautiful quilt.
