    No pattern, i got the idea from Izy and Shadow's crumb blocks. I start with a crum in the centre, a crumb is one piece of fabric, or a small block, and then i start doing kinda tilted log cabins all around. I didnt do tilted log cabins on all of them, but the ones that are tilted i like the best. It's all leftover crumbs and strips. No measuring or ironing at all until the end. I just lay fabric on fabric, imagine a straight line and sew, then open and thumb press with thumb nail, and another strip, finger press, til i get to over 6 inches, then press with iron and trim :) I don't like chaos, and didnt think i could ever do a scrappy quilt, but soon as i tried it i love it :)

    Thanks everyone. What i've been doing is this. I've been working on a huge queensize hd raffle quilt, and i keep my crumb blocks right beside the machine. When i get tired sewing my regular blocks, i just do a couple crumb blocks, but the problem is, i tell myself i'm just gonna do one crumb block, then get back to the quilt im SPOSED to be working on lol, but they're so addictive i can't stop at ONE! lol The tilted log cabins are easy. Start with a centre crumb, and then log cabin around it once. Then for each of your rows after that, you do tilted log cabins, when you lay your strip on the fabric, one end of your strip is where it belongs, but the other end, tilt it down bout a half inch, and keep doing them like that. I have lots of leftover strips from rotary cutting, and so it's easy.

    PS Yes, Izy has a wonderful tute in the tutorial section :)

    Crumb blocks are like potato chips, you can't just have one! Great job, Barb. It think they are very artistic. You must make more!
