In September last year I joined Jo's Crumb Along to make a quilt with the tiny leftover scraps I happen to have. It was fun, and somehow difficult to work against the basic rules I had learnt about quilting. I missed the first deadline in November, and the second in January, and the third deadline was March 2nd. Look, now it is finished, with binding and all:
I made an outer border with star and tree blocks, and words. Top right is part of one of my very first "limping geese" blocks.
I used Tonya Ricucci's book Word Play Quilts to learn how to make the letter blocks, and formed short, positive words. Next time it will be easier to make the letters a certain size.
The quilt is made entirely with fabrics from my stash, and the binding and the black sashings are the only fabrics that have not been recycled. Even the binding is made of leftover bits of bindings from other quilts.
This will be my third finish in the PIP category this year. If you want to see more crumble quilts, pop over to Jo's post here and see the links to other blogs.
