I'm Hooked on CRUMBS!

(double click on picture to get a get a better view of these - they are a little blurred)

I have spent the last 4 days putting these together. This fabric is left over from the cut offs of the paper pieceing I have been doing on the Batik Jewels of which I only lack 2 in finishing.

Here are 15 Batik Jewels. I keep looking at these and wondering how in the heck I am going to sew them together. Still haven't read the directions!

Needless to say, I have had a lot of little pieces left from all the Batiks I used in this project. Seemed like a waste of money and fabric to just throw them away, so I had Dawn give me a quick lesson when we were together getting ready to go to Paducah. Bad move on my part.... Not sure what I am going to do with these 4 1/2" squares yet, but have decided to make more and at least get to a lap quilt size. (I am open on suggestions on how to put these together). When I get the crumb project done I am going to send all my left over little pieces to Dawn (hopefully, it will drive her as nuts as it has me).

Our 4th weekend has been fairly quiet. Good thing since I have spent most of it in the sewing room making the crumbs.

What she said! WOW!!! I love your jewels, and your crumbs. I actually thought about you this weekend as I put together some block kits, and had some little triangles to nip off . . . but they wouldn't fit your palette, so I'll leave them in the waste basket!

I stand in awe of the batik word, they are show stopping! I hope you plan to enter it in a quilt show. Absolutely gorgeous!!!! And your crumbs are cuties.
