    I was inspired by the thread about the crumb blocks thats why :D :shock:

    These were the scraps that were given to me by one of our older guild members who was going back to the U.K. for the summer who had a clear out before she went.........soooooo look what I have been doing with them :D :D

    I see why you were up 'till 3 AM. The colors are beautifully bright and cheerful. Aren't you lucky to have been the recipient of them. Nice work.......keep on truckin'. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    I love your crumb blocks. Are you going to put a border around each block? I think that it would look really good with a solid color outlining each of those bright blocks. Don't forget to show us the finished quilt.

    Hey...you got great crumbs there Izy :D I like what you're doing with them. That's similar to what I'm doing, only my blocks are diamond instead of square. Same process though. It's a great way to use up the little bits of scrap. Can't wait to see this one finished.

    Thats what I am planning to do, I might even see if I can find plain primary colours to 'frame' each block then use black as sashing.....how does that sound????????????? :D

    Is this done with paper piecing? What is this term,CRUMB quilt,is this something new I missed. Or just what you call using scraps. Certenly don't want to miss out on any thing new..

    No its not paper pieced, I just start with a small piece, line up another, open out, line up another piece, and work my way around, until its big enough to be squared up to 6" If you use the search button at the top and enter crumb blocks you will find a link to a tutorial, which is what got me started :D Hope this makes sense :roll:

    Very striking Izy. The crumbs are so addicting once you get going, as you know, huh? Keep up the good work and we'll look forward to seeing the finished quilt.

    I love the energy of scrappy blocks - a basic black sashing, maybe with red or white cornerstones, would really set it off!

    I think black sashing will set these blocks off perfectly. It will make your colors SING!
