    I love these, I too have been making "crumb" blocks, mine are 4" square. I have made a four patch from them...so totally darling. Yesterday I started putting the top together- I decided to do a quilt "on point" which is new to me. They are sashed with black and have red cornerstones. I haven't yet figured out how to do the angle piece for the edges, but will investigate the internet and if I can figure it out here-the archives, to see if somebody has answered that part of my challenge. Have fun with your's.....I don't know how yet to post a photo on this stream, but I do have it posted on FB! for my friends.

    Thank you for showing us! I really like this idea. I'm going to have to reasearch it myself and start. I like your idea of strips. When you get enough I think it will be a really fun quilt!

    I am almost ready to start using up more scraps and I have hope to start with the new year. I have printed off several Bonnie Hunter patterns and hope to make some of them.

    I saw a lovely crumb quilt posted here that used 2 inch pieces. So as I work through other quilts and have those small leftovers, I cut them into the 2 inch pieces and have a drawer full of them. Perhaps after the holidays I will take a day to put them together into blocks. I love scrappies. I have made two spider web quilts and a few string quilts with my stash as well. With the price of fabric going up each season, those scraps look more precious all the time.

    After I sew a quilt top I gather all the left over scraps and sew them together in units which then go on the back of the quilt..I get to quilt outside the lines for fun..and avoid feeding the dragon in the scrap bag!

    You ladies give me hope. I work full time and just barely get a few quilts done a year. But I have been saving my scraps for some day. Hope it comes soon. Thanks for posting.

    I can't wait to see how this one turns out. I'm liking it so far. I save all my scraps and have a hard time making myself use them.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    I agree Murphy 1 that I save everything! I have boxes and bins of stripe and scraps a la Bonnie Hunter. Have made 2 quilt scrappy quilts and am working on a tumbler pattern right now.

    I've cut up huge amounts of scraps into the various sizes (per Bonnie Hunter) and its made me much more productive with quilting. I don't mind doing the cutting this way at all as I do it watching movies. In the past cutting out fabrics for a specific quilt drove me nuts....go figure! I'll have to investigate this method as well later on....after I finish cutting up all the scraps I have. Considering I've been quilting over 38 years, you can imagine how much there is..... : )
