Let's Talk About Crumbs !

Hi all - 

I'm here today to talk about CRUMB BLOCKS !!!!  Do you have a stack of them somewhere?  They are so fun to make, but they tend not to find their way into quilts...

I took a GIANT stack with me to a retreat last weekend - and before the retreat, I sewed triangles on each side to make the block into a square in a square................

I hoped that would make the blocks more easily usable - giving some solid for the eye to rest, and making it able to make a quilt that looks like its on point, without having to sew an onpoint quilt, which is just a little bit more challenging...

Well, let me show you some of the results... various ladies chose from the stack, and made these kid-sized quilts...........each block is 9 inches. 


 
 




 
 
and, finally, just one shot of the lovely hot air balloon we saw in the morning, on the lake.  Great retreat !  Great ladies !  Great quilts.
 
 


Hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer !!!!
