    I never heard of crumbs before--then I happened upon this site and decided to start doing something with my bags of crumbs! I had alot of fun doing it. My "rope rug" started out as an oval but ended up being more round. This "site" has me doing things I never thought to do. I have decided to make a rug to match every quilt I piece. Have you noticed I said pieced?? I am attempting to machine quilt and I'm finding it very difficult but I will perservere. Back to my crumbs !!! Anne

    After I had seen the tutorial I had to make some. I now have 3 in progress. When I'm not on this site I'm wrapping rope. I have a few quilt tops that I want to make matching rugs for.

    excellent stuff!

    I've been making rope bowls. It's probably the same technique as the rug but you angle the rope after the bottom is finished.

    Love both of your projects. So cheery and bright. ;I've been trying to use up my scraps too. It's quite a sense of accomplishment. Sort of I did this for nothing.

    I had to stop reading and go the tutorials. I just offered to give away a lot of my scraps. Not taking anymore names, going to make rugs. Have grandsons a lot in the summer, going to have them wrap the rope for me! Maybe even sew them.
    BTW love the quilt also.

    HI , I made them 5 inches square. I was afraid to make them any smaller. I made a promise to myself to make at least 4 of these babies before I do any other sewing--at least until the scrap pile goes down.
