Crumbs, Crumbs, Crumbs Madness

This is what my sewing desk looked like lately.... filled with little bits and scraps of fabrics from other projects that I could not bare to throw away. I have a huge laundry bag of scraps, and this is just a micro bit of what I pulled out!

There were times when I thought of throwing out the bag of little scraps but just couldn't. Then when Bonnie posted her Crumbs tutorial last month, I knew that THERE IS a reason to my madness in keeping all of those crumbs. LOL

This is the result of all those crumbs. I called this one, I Heart Crumbs! It's a baby quilt and for a little girl... can't you tell? lol Perfect for donating to Project Linus for this month... don't you think so?

Yeah! My machine quilting is improving! :-)) With this quilt, I focused on even stitches and am quite happy with how it turned out. I quilted loops in the borders and around the hearts, echoed hearts in the heart-shaped blocks and cornerstones. The quilted hearts came out a bit wonky in a few places, but that's OK.... I'm happy with the even stitches. I found a piece of pink and white checkered flannel and used that for the backing.

This is the center of another crumbs top that I'm currently working on. I'm planning to add borders and applique vines and leaves... will post my progress when I have it done.

Oh, your doxies are sooooo cute! Love your crumb quilts too! A lady came to quilt group Monday night with a couple of crumb quilts started. They are a great idea for using up those scraps;)
