Crumb Quilt is finished

It is done!  It wasnt without its share of frustrations.  First, I ran out of quilting needles (I broke a ton when I was quilting and tired.)  I was able to accomplish a lot after that until my darning foot broke.  Then the kids were grumpy.  Oh well, it is done now!  There was some light color bleeding in a few of the red, scrappy areas.  It isnt bad though.  Washing a two inch piece of scrap fabric isnt really feasible so I took a chance!

Here it is!


A closeup of the quilting.  I made a contuous arc design in the colored blocks.  Later, I noticed a nice secondary design and then quilted in the white areas.



The flying geese had a similar arcing design



Feathers in the border.  Hindsight?  Make the feathers go in the same direction as the geese.  Didnt even think of that!



Quilt back.  I had some plaid fabrics and threw them together.  The green one is a civil war fabric so I stashed what was left with my CW collection!



Just to show you how fast I have to work.  Once I had everything out to photograph, my son came over and moved in.



So what is next?  I have two other quilts in various stages of completion (not including my GFG quilt).  I will likely finished assembling the two rows of the Evilyn Sloppy quilt and get the top assembled.  Not far from accomplishing that!!!

  3. I love it, and I love the fact that the baby is playing on it. Quilts were intended to be used and loved. Nice job!

  4. Awesome! I love it. The quilting is lovely. My 9 patch was made of small scraps that I couldn't prewash, so I used a little bit of Retayne in the wash and the quilt actually came out brighter than when I put it in and it didn't bleed at all. It is great stuff and a little bit goes a long way.
