From the Crumby Constellation...Two Crumb Star Tops.
When I was working with my orphan blocks I found some 6.5 inch blue crumb blocks. I decided to turn those crumb blocks into 12 inch (finished) crumb stars. I had a lot of small scraps of reds and yellows so decided on that color for the backgrounds. I used a variety of blue scraps for the star points.
My crumbs are usually the smallest of the small scraps and are mostly odd shapes.
Sometimes crumbs are the skinniest and shortest of strings.
I made a blouse a long long time ago from that blue with pink tulips.
A few weeks ago I received a box of 12 inch blocks. I've been using a lot of the blocks to piece donation quilt backings but there were just enough Crumb Stars for a quilt top so I added some sashing and made a quilt top.
Her crumbs are more elegant than mine.
And her crumbs are bigger than mine.
And now I have two more donation quilt tops ready for a September quilting marathon. More on that later.
