Crumb Bum


My original thought was to make a crumb border for my Kaleidoscope quilt. I used crumbs for each of the kaleidoscope block corners why not extend that into the borders.    I thought crumbs would look like those  little pieces in a kaleidoscope before they form those beautiful designs.  Before I got too far with my crumb making I decided to pin it all to the wall to see how it looks.  I'm on the fence but I think I will go with my original thought and go ahead and add the crumb borders...



...to my Kaleidoscope quilt.

Sue took the words right out of my mouth...WOWZER! Why can't I be that brave with my scraps?

It looks really cool as planned but if you think that it detracts from the order of your blocks, you could always add a narrow inner border of a solid?

I think I would add a very narrow stop border before adding the outer crumb border -- that would let both shine even more brightly. The quilt is fabulous!!!!!!!!

I agree--a narrow strip would give it a little separation...make them stand out more...such great blocks...hugs, Julierose

Ah those people said what I wanted to say. I am in favor of you trying a border to separate the blocks from the crumb border....depending on size (you want the quilt) I'd say a wider border rather narrow and perhaps a wider binding too
But it's your quilt you choose

What a fantastic quilt! I too would try a narrow border but it's your quilt and looks fabulous.
