I am trying my blog out for the first time, so hope everything goes well. I have enjoyed reading about and seeing what other quilters are working on; so decided it was time to share.
I have been Crumbing Along with Jo at Jo's Country Junction the last 5 weeks and am posting my blocks today!
So far I have 47+ blocks, some not squared up. My blocks have been ending up 6x8,7x8 9x10, etc; so I have squared them up 8 1/2". Trees and houses:
Braid, cut into 3 blocks:
More blocks on my border fabric. I want the quilt to be larger so am planning on using the blocks with the Disappearing 9 patch. Got this idea from Steelscraps.blogspot.com from her Magic Crumb Scrap Quilt.
See the 3rd & 4th blocks with yellow "C"s. I had 1 block with this yellow border and I thought it was too yellow, so cut in half and ended up with 2 blocks.
I am calling this quilt "Mom's old pants". I did a lot of sewing in High School/College and made 2 pairs of pants for my mother. Sky blue and teal. The end of the scraps from these pants are in the blocks. This has been a fun project using crumbs from many past projects.
