    My Crumb Quilt Top Finished with your help!

    Thanks to some very good advice from a bunch of you in my post a couple of weeks ago,
    Help me pick a color, please?
    , I finished my crumb quilt top today. I couldn't get into randomly sewing scraps together so I started making blocks of various kinds....some wonky on purpose and some wonky by accident! A little applique, a little paper piecing, I had lots of fun for days. Then I needed help with sashing ideas and got great color advice from QB, of course. All of this came from scraps and stash.
    Anyway, here's the finished top. The outer border has 4-patch cornerstones but they don't show in the picture. One picture couldn't show all the rows, so there are two shots of it. This was a lot of fun...no stressing about measurements or patterns! Thanks for the help and thanks for looking!

    You have such a nice array of blocks...beautiful and creative! I hope you'll post it again once it's quilted.
    Bless, O Lord, the works of my hands....

    Crumb Quilt Border color

    Your quilt is much to lovely to allow crumbs to fall upon it. I see a lot of navy blue and some black; I would chose either of them, probably black to make the red dramatic and pick up some of the brighter colors in the blocks. I think whatever you decide it will be a masterpiece.
