    Can't wait to see how this ends up. You guys are such an inspiration to us who can't picture things and do things without a pattern. Looks great so far.

    I'm doing the same thing around here. I have way too many small pieces and working on 6.5" blocks since last week. So far I have made 24 crumb blocks and will keep adding on til I finish the size top I want. These are fun to make because one does not have to worry on matching up points/or pattern design/& or color coordination.
    And your blocks are looking Good too!

    Day Three: Yesterday

    I'm still feeling pretty crappy, but I'm determined not to let this cold/flu get the better of me. Sitting around was driving me nuts knowing my quilt was calling me to finish it. So I tried yesterday for as long as I could. Its currently 30x45 and I have a long way to go for a queen size. One thing I did realize is that I like the look of the smaller pieces and not too keen on the bigger strips I used ,so I think I'm gonna stray from using any strips and only use the itty bitty pieces in my crumb tote from now on. Oh yea, FYI- No dent in my crumb tote yet!

    I like the itty bitty pices better

    Day Four: Yesterday

    I'm still quite under the weather but I wanted to at least get something done.. a few wannabe WIP blocks..

    One good thing of being sick there were no shortage of kleenex boxes- they doubled as a Crumb's crumb catcher. Once full it'll get tossed..

    Did a lil cleaning-this is the combined pile found on the floor scattered everywhere !!!

    I would also like to see what you do with these pieces, as I have a couple of tubs like that also and wonder what I'm gonna do with it. Keep us posted. Also thanks for the website quiltville.com.

    You have inspired me to also start piecing together my crumbs. I sorted through a bunch and paired up sides and keep a stack near my machine so if I need a leader or an ender, I use those. Then toss on ironing board when done to be ironed. Then I trim the sides to straight edges and toss them into another pile to be the next bunch to be made into a stack. So far, I have lots of joined pieces 2-3 inches across so have a long way to go but gotta start somewhere. Keep showing us your progress. I will try to do the same in a few days.

    Day Five: today

    I decided that I didn't like the long strips in the quilt so I whacked, cut and sewed it back together again.. and this is what it turned out to be.. I Like it better.. I even added a siggie tag in the corner -If you look on the bottom right you can kinda see the mouse siggie block.. i took a pic but it came out blurry, but you get the idea.. I figured someone had to claim this madness..lol !

    Love them kleenex boxes.. They are great for snipped threads and crumbs crumbs...

    Tissue anyone? oh wait thats Crumb's crumbs!!
