    I am Betty but using alot of Magenta for the border trim around the blocks as Jess loves pink!!

    I just worked it out last night....I need to make at least 90 of the blocks - I think I will be doing these in my sleep.....my sewing corner looks like a chinese sweatshop !!!!!!!!!! :D

    It does not take much effort on my part to imagine what your work space looks like, but I would be willing to wager (if I were a betting person) that it can't look as bad as my sewing room when I'm working on crazy quilt blocks. My husband keeps telling me to just throw away those small scraps, but I can't. He even threatens to throw everything in the trash. I just clean off all the stuff I have hanging on the door so that I can shut it. If he can't see my mess, he can't complain about it. Perhaps it is being shut out that shuts him up, at least for a little while.

    Magenta is another bright color. I'm sure the new quilt wll be just as beautiful as the first.

    Really nice Izzy. Thanks for helping me decide how to put my crumbs together. I have 140 8" crumbs ready to assemble but didn't know if it should have a lattice between them or just sew them together. I like what you did.

    I absolutely love this quilt. I would have never thought to use a print fabric for sashing or borders because I thought it would look too wild and confusing but this is a wonderful quilt. thanks for sharing. I am talking about a crumb or scrap quilt.
