Crumb Quilt Progress!

A while back I did a post on making a crumb quilt.  If you have never made one I highly recommend it!   The blocks are so much fun to put together!  I have put all my blocks together and stitched them into rows. The rows are attached to each other and now I am working on the borders.

I want to continue the "crumb" feel into the border.  So I cut out a border strip from muslin and am attaching the scrappy strips of fabric to it.  It is a sew, flip, iron process.  Lots of hopping up and down to the iron.  I trim after adding a few strips so that it is not a huge job at the end.  It is looking good and I am happy with the progress of the borders so far.
This picture was taken this morning of the wonderful fall colors in my little corner of New Hampshire.  I plan on driving around a lot this weekend to look at the spectacular fall foliage.  Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by for a visit!


  1. great crumb border idea.
    Pretty fall colors! I drove to MA yesterday and it was lovely. Did you know that the American Quilt Study Group is having their seminar in NH in 2017?

  2. I love your crumb quilt. It looks like a quilt that is meant to be loved and used. It looks so fresh and summery! I can see it spread out on a white, metal frame bed.
