Crumb Quilt Coming Along

I've been making a mess...
As I sewed I also ironed and trimmed. (See said trimmings below.)  I could probably make a dozen of these quilts out of snippets and still have all that stash.

 
So here are the blocks so far. One block is leftover from a quilt I was making for my oldest son and his wife, but they didn't like it, so I donated it to my favorite quilt charity.  There is a snowball block from my grandson Christopher's quilt, and two paper pieced items (the star, and a lime green tree with a pink background) from a wall hanging I abandoned.
 

The blocks are all different shapes and sizes.  I really didn't think ahead to how they should go into a quilt. I've just been enjoying the process.

Hope you all are praying for out friend, Debby at Stitchin Therapy. She's been in the hospital, and as I understand, they just figured out what has her hands and feet numb... lack of Vitamin B12. Who would figure that out? Sounds like it is a slow recovery.

Anyway, have a lovely "Hump" day, and enjoy your sewing with Debby in mind.
 
Hugs,
Terri

  1. You are really coming along on those blocks. Pretty soon, you'll have a quilt full of blocks. I've been keeping up with Debbie. Hopefully she will start feeling her hands and feet again soon.

  2. I love how it is coming along! I did not know about Debbie - I will pray too ;-) Glad they could figure out what it was!

  3. Wow! You are truly making a scrappy quilt from all of your bits and pieces. It is going to be so fun to covered with this quilt and to be able to look at all of the different fabrics.

  4. Wonderful crumbs quilt. But isn't it a bit unfair to be diving into your scraps, using them and finding that it didn't make a dent in the collection? Here's to making a BIG dent in your collection. The quilt is coming along very well. And it's fun to use those blocks that have special memories with them. Great job!

  5. It's a beautiful quilt, Terri - I do love a crumb quilt! Yet it's always amazing how few of our scraps it takes to make one....

  6. Poor Debby--I'll join in the prayers for a quick recovery. In the meantime, I'm loving this crumb quilt. I've made a couple and there's no dent in my pile either. To give the quilt a sense of cohesiveness I used a solid color background. I also found that the background fabric worked to bring the individual blocks to a mutual 12" size. They are great fun to make.
