It seems like I've been sewing up pink crumbs all month long. I define crumbs basically as any scrap less than a 12 inch square. A lot of the pieces are very small and a lot of the pieces have curves or angles. I define chunks basically as any scrap greater than a 12 inch square but less than a fat quarter. I've been making blocks each month using crumbs in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month. At the beginning of next year I'll see how many donation quilts I can make from the blocks.
I made two heart centered twelve inch slabs.
I made 18 eight inch crumb stars. For these I've been using chunk scraps in complementary colors. If I have no chunks I pull from stash.
And from Cathy's Confectionery Company...12 eight inch Crumby Yummy Candies.
Twelve little itty bitty nitty gritty fishes swimming in the deep blue sea.
14 ten inch Mendota blocks (5 inch centers with 4 inch and 2.5 inch sides). If the center is a primary color I've been framing with a primary color and if the center is a secondary color I've been framing with a secondary color. Again, I first use scrap chunks to frame if I have them and if not I pull from stash.
I ended up with a little mixture of four inch blocks. (I THINK that pink calico in the four patch is left over from a sundress I made my daughter when she was about 4 years old. She will be forty-two in July.)
Four nine inch blocks. (The fabric with the little girls in the nine patch is left over from aprons I made the granddaughters when they were about six years old. They will be fourteen later this year. I also gave them Easy Bake Ovens that year. If I remember correctly it was the last year the ovens used a light bulb for a heat source. )
And finally... a 12 inch block, a 10 inch block and a 6 inch block.
Gosh that was fun.
I see in June I'll be working with aqua/teal/turquoise scraps.
