    Amazingly, it hasn't seemed to make a real dent in the scrap stash. Hmmm... what does this say about the mountain of stash, do you suppose? :lol:

    What did you do? Sew a bunch together then cut apart. How is all the seams handled?

    Interesting blocks, but so many seams, does the block get heavy?

    TCharlie - here's a link to a good idea of how they're constructed. It's a zen thing. You get in a groove, and the day kinda floats by... :lol:

    Love your crumb blocks. Scraps do seem to reproduce during the night don't they?

    Well, here's the rest of them... 110 total. It's probably going to end up being several quilts. AND... I can finally see a dent in the scraps! Huzzah!

    I am always amazed what beautiful scrappy quilts everyone makes. I have not made one yet, but I'd like to try sometime.
