    Your quilt is wonderful! Nice and bright and cheery! I love it!

    I'm finishing up a scrappy-strippy quilt top this week (maybe) and I think a crumb top maybe my next go round with the scrap basket.

    Have you noticed that when dealing with the scrap basket the scraps seem to multiply? (Like wire hangers in a dark closet?) I am telling myself it's only because I'm fluffing them up but there really does seem to be more than when I started! Argh!

    Barnbum - You and a couple of other ladies have expressed interest in how to make these blocks, would you like me to make a photographic tutorial so you can see step by step, if so just let me know, and I will make one up :D

    I layered the quilt up yesterday, and used a lovely soft fleece for the backing, so with great gusto, got started on some free motion meandering....WHAT A DISASTER!! Its just too thick and heavy to move around enough, so just spent 2 hours unpicking...not easy on fleece either :(

    So what to do now....??? any suggestions, I fancied doing something different rather that doing in the ditch ... :?

    Hi Izy, Well hark at me giving you advice LOL . Would it be too much trouble to take of that fleece backing, if not then take it off, do some of your wonderful free motion stitching, put the backing on and tie it to the rest of the quilt. Just a thought. Good luck. Elle your boosom buddy x

    That is beautiful! Really nice fabrics, and I love the crumb blocks with sashing.

    I personally hate using "stretchy" fabric for backing when doing machine quilting - flannel is bad enough, but oh the PAIN of fleece backing! I did do a couple this past year for a 4H charity project, but I hated every bit of it, and only did the minimal amount of free-motion quilting needed to keep it all together (and no batting). I ditto the person who suggested tying it instead.

    I think I might be taking the fleece off like Elle suggested, I feel like it is dragging under the needle too much :cry:
