    I'd been wanting to do something with all my scraps. I discovered the crumbs method, and this is what I ended up with...

    I'm still trying to decide whether to leave it at this size (maybe add a 1-2in border) or keep going and make it bigger?

    The piece looks good as it is! How big is it? If it is big enough for you,it is done.

    Nice job. :lol:

    Love the colors.

    Call me silly, but I haven't come across enough explanation on how to do a crumb. I know, I should dig deeper, but I haven't. Any clues you could pass along?

    I used this tutorial... http://quiltville.com/crumbs.shtml Had to practice a little at first, but I eventually got the hang of it.

    Your quilt is lovely. Really gorgeous colours...very unique design. Thanks for providing the link. I save the smallest bits and pieces...I can't bear to throw them away..so I guess "crumbing" will be the perfect solution.

    Yeah, my whole goal with this was to try and use up my scraps. I used almost all of the scraps I had in the colors that I used.

    Boom - great tuturial...but also a good site. I checked out some of the patterns and saved it to my favorites I know there are a few patterns in my near future. Seems like everything I see right now I earmark for Christmas presents. :) :)

    I was thinking about giving it to my dad for his 50th birthday at the end of the month, but I think it might just be a little too bright/crazy for him. And I also don't really see him getting much use out of a wall-hanging either, which is really the only thing it could be at it's current size... it's a little smaller than 2ft x 2ft.

    way to go, that is great, I would be tempted to keep going, as long as there is enough scraps.

    I don't have enough "scraps" of the colors/fabrics I've been using, but I do still have some yardage of the colors/fabrics. I was thinking about maybe turning it into at least a lapsize quilt, but I'm not really sure what I want to do next. My idea with the whole thing was to kinda do a round-robin type quilt, just on my own.

    It looks great!!

    I have a crumb quilt in the works now. The main area is done and sewn together, I am just working on the borders now.

    I just checked out the web site for the "crumbs". Looks like a lot of fun to do with a friend or friends, maybe at a retreat! Darling quilts.
