This is my contribution. In fact, this is what brought me into blogland. I love traditional quilts and love scrappy-goodness. I wanted to incorporate crumb blocks into a larger design. While I love crumb quilts, I like when the busy-ness of the quilt is tamed down into a larger design or pattern. I think I accomplished this here.
The above quilt ended up about twin sized. I used warm and white batting and machine quilted it using grey thread. I have learned that grey thread blends in very well when quilting in a scrappy quilt. It is my NEUTRAL thread!
Here are closeups of the quilting:
I hope that next year I can come up with another idea of a quilt design using crumbs to share with you!
Below is a second quilt I made with this pattern. I named this one I-Spy a Crumb Patch. It uses an I-Spy format and is child sized. I made prairie point around the outside border. I hear this was very much enjoyed by the recipient and his older sister. She was entertained by all of the things she was able to find!
Thank you for allowing me to show this quilt again. I really love this quilt and it is currently thrown on my bed for extra warmth now that it is getting cold.
