    Once again, I got off course and found a new obsession. I was going to piece the backing for my modified bento box, but that's not my favorite thing to do..long story short, I decided to make ONE block in the crumb style from my leftover strips. I ended up making 19, plus the one normal looking hst 10 minute block. My blocks are really more of a freestyle log cabin because most of my crumbs are actually strips. I did clear out 2 shoe boxes FULL of leftover strips from the bento box, asterisk and day at the beach quilts. I have really big feet so I had lots of strips and scraps in those boxes. I had just about used up all of those crumbs when I decided to root around and find some more, thus the pile of crumbs picture.
    I said this was going to be a long story short, I lied.
    I had a fabulous fun time playing with these blocks, I hope you'll enjoy the pictures. I did a close up of some of my favorites.

    What a fun quilt that is going to be. Sometimes those things we just play around with are our favorites.

    I did start on the backing before I left for work this morning, I'll try to finish it tonight, that is if the crumbs don't get to me first!

    Crumbs are really an addiction once you get started. Oh I love putting fussy cut 'stuff' in my crumbs too.

    You did a great job!

    I love it, especially all the orange fabrics. I guess I will have to do one of those too...one of these years.
