Crumbs in the Path

My friend Frances has been blogging about "Crumb" quilts this week: quilts made with small bits and parts of scrap fabric. She's got some nice ideas and a link, so click on her name and check it out.

Last year I made this quickie quilt to put into a show in North Carolina...it was a quickie because they needed a few more pieces to fill out the show, and I really wanted another piece or two to hang. This one is called "Moonlight on Water".

While I was making that quilt, I used the scraps (they were pretty small) to make this quilt...

It's called "City Rooftops" and it measures 12" or 13" x 14". I sewed these tiny pieces between the string blocks and ended up with two quilts at the end. Who knew that this was called a "Crumb" quilt? Good name.
