Crumblies.... part 1


Jo over at Jo's country junction is having a crumb along. This is week 2 but the first real week of instructions.
I made 2 of the blocks she described and 4 flying geese that will become a star in the border section....... and then I was having so much fun putting the pieces together I also made 2 regular blocks. Oops.... I seem to have ventured ahead on my own and made some of my own blocks. I think I will be adding more of the white and the solid colors in the blocks as I go along. It is a learning process and I'm sure will be a cute quilt when it is done. It will be unique, that is for sure!

Go check out her website and see what everyone else has come up with.

  2. Deb, I love your fabric choices!! I have a stash of vintage reproduction prints that I'd love to use, but everything else is just overflowing, so I thought I'd clear some of that stuff out....but I LOVE your fabrics!! This is gonna be a pretty quilt!

  9. Those 30 ish fabrics will make cute crumb blocks and you did great with the geese! I am impressed you were able to stop at just two extra blocks!

  11. Your blocks look adorable, and your ahead. Bonus points for you! You must really be enjoying this. Have you made a crumb quilt before?

  12. I really like the look of your blocks. I don't have any of these repros in my stash, so I'm eager to see what comes out of your crumb bin. The first crumb quilt I made was a controlled scrappy - using only Thimbleberries fabrics from other projects - the quilt of "leftovers" got more compliments than the original meal quilts.
