Have you heard of crumb piecing? Taking those teeny little pieces of fabric you just can't throw away and piecing them together at random to create blocks? The quilt above has crumb pieced blocks. I like it well enough, probably because of the limited palette of colors. Sometimes when scraps from far and wide are included, crumb blocks can get downright wild, a bit much for me and my style of quilting.
Here is what I am working on; sewing together crumbs grouped by color. They have all the fun of improvisational piecing but a little more controlled. I'm excited to see what these become.I am considering bordering them with yellow, or as the centers of sawtooth stars or churn dash blocks.
