Design Wall Monday

Design Wall Monday on Sunday Evening


This morning I went into the sewing room to do a bit of cleaning up and put up a new shelf. I did that and decided to sit down and sew a few crumb blocks from the bits and pieces that were in my little basket. These darn crumb blocks are like those potato chips that you only want to eat one of but you know, even before the first bite, that you will be out of control in no time! So after 1 string block and 17 crumb blocks and a quick photo, I put the blocks away.

I have no clue how many blocks are in the box. Probably enough for a nice sized lap quilt but I'm not counting yet. One day I will get the box out and start sewing the blocks into a top. I already have string strips sewn for the border so it will go together really fast.

I can tell that there is a time warp on your sewing machine too.

Scrappy quilts are such fun!

Those crumbs are TOTALLY addicting. I am hoping to have a crumb block quilt a long this fall. I am anxious to see yours finished.

ohhh yeah I could see why you can't just do one - at least with these they don't straight to the hips!! Can't wait to see the layout!

Fun! Be careful that you don't lose the block box! That is something I would do!

It's fun to churn out easy blocks... I'm sure the crumb quilt will rock.

Those are cool and bright crumb blocks. I'm intrigued by your border idea. Would you post of photo of them?

Gari said...

Your blocks look like the kind of quilt I would love to snuggle under on a cold afternoon of reading. Love it.

What fun blocks! This will be a happy quilt to cozy up in when you're finished! :)

Chris said...

I think most blocks can quickly become addicting LOL. I go into my sewing room for something and emerge an hour later....

Lynn calls those 'garbage quilts'. They are so bright and more like "I SPY' quilts to me. August 17th is the night for the BIG REVEAL- 10pm MDT. Don't worry you'll hear about it on the ol' blog and FB!

Sitting *piecefully* is always a good time!

Crumb blocks are so fun and full of surprises. What a nice way to spend an afternoon. So nice to have blocks tucked away for someday.
