Crumbs and Chunks

 This week I used my aqua/teal/turquoise crumbs to make centers for some stars.  I use larger scraps for points. I've been making backgrounds in complementary colors using scraps from the chunk crate if there are any otherwise I have to dig into stash.  (Looks like I mixed up a couple of background pieces). 
 I made a few Itty Bitty Nitty Gritty Crumb Fish.  
One Slab with heart center. 

 A bunch of miscellaneous sized blocks...
 ...and a few more. 
 Ten inch "Mendota Blocks".  
I've been using RSC color for the centers and if center is primary color borders are in primary colors and centers in secondary colors get borders in secondary colors. 
 A few more Mendotas...
...and even more. 

At the end of the year all of these blocks will be worked into donation quilts.  That should be fun!

Love the fish best of all. Not that the rest aren't great of course. But who doesn't love fish?

These are such great blocks! I like how you use your smallest bits in the centers of different shapes, or to surround the hearts. They will be perfect for donation quilts, too!

You must have a giant tub of finished blocks. I am a bit jealous :) They will be so much fun to play with.

Your Mendotas are starting to add up! I keep thinking I should make some for the retreat, but then I want to put them together into a quilt immediately. I hope that's not considered bad Sunshine manners :)

Mixing up the background pieces really adds to the character of the quilt. Love the fishies!
