Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Crumbs



I put the pedal to the metal this week and sewed together my rainbow crumb blocks. I had to make a few more blocks for a layout of 7 blocks across by 10 blocks down. That's a total of 70 blocks measuring 6" finished, so right now the quilt top is 42" x  60". The orange is a bit out of control, but that's okay :)








It was a riot of colour in my sewing room joining these crumb blocks together. Just look at all those tiny bits that are finally being used up in a quilt.
I'm not sure if this quilt is done or if I might add a border, but for now it is making me happy just to look at it as it is :)

Fabulous!!! Reminds me of Skittles. :)

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I thought the same as Judy - Skittles! It does need a stop border to hold it together, but I think it is just wonderful.

Oh, yes! Glorious color! It made me happy to see it, too. "Down with Brown" I choose the colors of flowers over the colors of dirt.

Love the bright colors! I'm laying here in a hospital bed under observation for two days without anything to work on and your quilt is giving me inspiration. Can't wait to get out and dig through my scraps but I don't think they will be a bright and wonderful as yours. Love it!
