Welcome to Gramma's Quilting Room.

I am such a follower! I was minding my own business yesterday, checked Diane's blog to see how she was doing, thinking maybe she posted snow pictures. No snow but she did have a very inspiring and taunting post! McTavishing, a super cute dog and jelly roll sampler block with a taunt.

Well, I have a few jelly rolls in my fabric stash so I thought that would be a great project. I clicked over to Moose on the Porch Quilt Along 2010 and started reading. Then I read scrappy and remembered a bag of blues and whites/creams that I bought last year at the guild's sale. A big zip bag full of 2 1/2" strips with squares and 1 1/2" strips. Plus I have lots of blues in my stash. And she is posting a new block every 2 weeks. I like that! So I'm following along with this Quilt Along!!! Bbbaaaaaa Go ahead, click the link, become a sheep like me.

Monday and Tuesday I made 40 more crumb blocks. I now have 100! With enough crumbs and strings for 560 more. ;) Still, I wonder if I will ever see the bottom of the bin, the more I dig, the bigger the mountain gets. I'll just keep making them......they are like potato chips, you can't eat just one.
