    Here's my newly finished quilt top, using the crumb blocks I made. (And keep making!) :lol: The original mini blocks are 4x4" unfinished. I used 4 to make a 7 1/4" unfinished block ( there is more cutaway for squaring up, due to the small size of the crumbs). Then I sewed the blocks into 8 piece columns. Basically, each column is 7 1/4" wide, and about 56" tall. I will do the same, Sashiko-style stitching on this that I did on my last one, and I may use a flannel piece for the back. It will be a WARM quilt, as it is already heavy, due to all the little pieces.

    That "Crumb Fever" must be catching. I worked on mine today. I find them very addicting. Your quilt is shaping up beautifuly. Can't wait to see how yours turns out.

    Not necessarily. It is more important to have straight seams than worry too much about allowance. If your seams bow at all, you will end up with a very bumpy quilt.
