CRUMBS


Here we have a pile of scraps I had left from making the Batik Jewels. As I said before, I hated to waste all this so I started making crumbs and never made a dent in this pile. So these are going to camp with me in September to be given to Dawn or anyone else who wants to go crazy making CRUMBS.






You can't see the depth of this pile from this picture, but believe me it is piled up and it is all Batik fabric. I know this is going to make someone happy and I will be overjoyed in their happiness.







Now for the results of my use of the above pile. It looks like the neutral fabric is white but it is really a marble batik cream. It is lap size because I got tired of making crumbs. Plan to sandwich it this weekend and machine quilt it. When all is said and done, I really did like this little experiment in CRUMBS.

You quilt is gorgeous! I haven't been brave enough to try crumbs yet, but the more wonderful quilts I see the more I am inspired to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

Your quilt is so pretty! I have 4 sets of crumb blocks, have worked out the layouts and even have all of the fabrics - that was 2 years ago. I need to get those things together!

Jan it is wonderful. I really want to play with crumbs, but it scares me as it looks to much like paper piecing.

I just love to play with crumbs, strings and scraps. They are so much fun and you can really get your creativity going. I haven't worked with batiks but they sure are pretty.

I found your blog throug Belinda at Brown dirt Cottage, I just love her blog, and I just know I'm going to really like this one too. We have a lot in common when it comes to quilting.

I would like to extend you an invitation to visit my new blog at blogmemories.blogspot.com. It's called "Making Memories Once Stitch at a Time".

Till next time...~~ Fran :c)
