Crumb Quilt Update

Jo is having a crumb quilt check in today. I must admit that I have not made any progress since November in sewing together my batik crumb quilt. 
But the good news is that I have figured out what I want to do and finally have a vision for this quilt! I want to add 8 letter blocks, and have a few more crumb block to sew as fillers. 
So now I have a plan and a new deadline/goal of March 2nd. 
Wish me luck!
I have been distracted by working on a thousand few other quilts, and also by this glorious winter weather. We haven't had nearly enough snow here this year to suit me, so I have tried to enjoy each and every snowfall. So beautiful!

Oh, I love the color wash/variation look to these gorgeous blocks! You definitely need a few more greens. Can't wait to see the letter blocks and where your vision leads you with this one. Get busy, we have until March!

I love how each and every one of these quilts is so different. I liked where you were with it before, and where it is going, as well

Impressive! It looks great. I love the "watercolor" look, and the way the colors blend.

Beautiful, beautiful batik crumb blocks. Oh, this just sings!!
We haven't had enough snow, either. Our storm today fizzled before we got anything. Love these shots!

Isn't it nice when the plan finally becomes clear. Love the colors you've used and how they move from hot to cool.

I love your fabrics and the colours. Beautiful winter pictures too.

I love crumb blocks and yours have a lot of added personality. I never think to add shapes or motifs in my crumb blocks.
