Crumb Along

What is this??  Jo over at Jo's Country Junction is hosting a crumb along.  She is showing how to make different crumb blocks.  Something new every Tuesday.  I got a late start, so just got the first week finished and started on the 2nd week.  The first week was Flying Geese.  I used bonus half square triangle to make my wonky geese.  Then just built the block up so I could square it up to 6 1/2 inches, which is the size of the ruler I am using.  This is very freeing, because you dont worry about matching seams.  The "Crumb" are left overs and scraps", dont throw it way, crumb it.  LOL

The next ones are Wonky Stars.  I used the dregs of my 2 inch squares to make these.  I day dregs, because I have been using these up on other projects.  May have to cut some more from the larger scraps.  I need some lites.  I really like these.

Next is a heart block, I will work on that this afternoon.

Happy Quilting,

I'm glad you found a use for those leftover triangles. Your crumb blocks are lovely. Crumb piecing is fun!

Lovely crumb blocks. For my crumb blocks I usually wait for the "bucket" (a large one) to get totally full. Then spend a few days crumbing it.
