I-Spy a Crumb Patch top complete

Last night I was able to finish the I Spy a Crumb Patch quilt top.  I am really happy with it and know exactly what fabric to purchase for the border (a bright but deep colored blue).  A while back I saved a link in my RSS feed for prairie points and I think that would totally look cool in this scrappy quilt.  Pieces of Rana's Life is a great blog and this tutorial makes it look easy!  I was going to put on a 1" finished border in blue, then the prairie points (scrappy of course), then a 3" finished border using the same blue.

Here is the quilt top

In other news, I was going to start the Tree of Life quilting, only to realize I skipped an important step:  I forgot to purchase coordinating thread!  I am going to take care of that today or tomorrow.  Gold for most of the body and brown for the tree. 

Happy Quilting!


  1. Looks Great! I love all the different fabrics.

  2. WOW, I really like this quilt. It'll look great with a deep blue border fabric and the prairie points will add an extra fun detail.

  3. Hey Natasha,
    it's me, Rana from Piece's of Rana's Life. Thanks for recommending my prairie point tutorial!! I can't wait to see how yours turn out, and they are gonna look great on your little quilt!
    And, I love all of your scrap quilts!!

  4. I've been keeping this photo as NEW (ok, an earlier version) for some time - it's so pretty, not difficult, etc. I'm looking forward to seeing what the border looks like. Very pretty!
