Crumb quilt - flimsy

My Crumb flimsy is almost finished, it's in 4 pieces, but I thought I would post pictures since holidays are here and it is getting pushed aside. Quilt is 68”x88”. I ended up using the blocks with the Disappearing 9 patch. Got this idea from Steelscraps.blogspot.com from her Magic Crumb Scrap Quilt. My blocks are 8”, used 4 ½” strips.





I sewed almost half the quilt together using the 4½” strips, then cutting the blocks, turning blocks A & D, then sewed the 4 blocks together. I thought handling a 20” block was a pain; so I cut my strips to 2¼” and sewed. A few more pictures that show the process and how block A & D get turned.




I have pulled these fabrics for the back:



I have Jo at Jo's Country Junction to thank for hosting the Crumb Along. Learned new things and ended up with this great quilt. Thanks Jo!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the setting design. What a great idea making it a little funky like the blocks yet bringing a little uniformity to it too. I'll be keeping your setting idea in mind for something I make in the future.

The setting for your blocks adds loads of movement to the quilt! Can't wait to see it finished!
