Ready for Quilting :)

I couldn't sleep last night so the next best thing to do when I can't sleep is to play with fabric. :)

I pulled out the crumb blocks that I recently completed and cut and added the sashing strips. It was a very long night so I even got the blocks joined together and added to my crumb flimsy. I added one full row and one full column and I think it is finished and ready for quilting now. My blocks are 8" finished and the sashing and cornerstones are 1" finished. The flimsy is currently approx 64" x 73" and I know that it will shrink a bit with quilting but it should still be a good size for cuddling on the couch.

I thought that 'Abstract' would be a really good name for this quilt because all of the colourful crumbs stitched together look like art to me. I love the way it looks now and I am pretty sure that once it is quilted it will look fabulous. :)

Love Abstract! I think I need to just pull scraps from one of the bins and just sew! Your's came out beautiful. Hope you were able to catch a morning nap.
