    Crumb quilt finish!

    I had some of the crumb blocks for ages...they are what I do when I want to do mindless sewing. Then I decided to get busy and finish the quilt. With life's interruptions it has taken me most of the winter to get it done but it is finally finished. I used polka-dot flannel for the backing.

    That is absolutely beautiful. Your diagonal quilting lines make the blocks look like 3-dimensional string quilt blocks. Love your color choice for the sashing.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Very pretty!
    Did it take a long time to sew all those little pieces together?

    And don't those lines let the eye flow across the quilt keeping the eye moving.

    I had never heard of a crumb quilt before but I think your quilt stunning - I love the colors and the freedom you have. Kids are usually the only ones brave enough to be bold with color. You are the exception. I just can't get over what you call a crumb quilt and the yellow sashing is smashing!!!!!! Thank you so much.

    Both the orange first and golden-yellow secondary sashings make those blocks really super attractive. I was wondering, the orange sashings *within the blocks* looks like it was stitched down the middle once, horizontally and vertically, but it doesnt show up on the back,,,I was wonderng, is the orange sashing a stripe possibly ?
