Crumb Quilt = Done!
So much prettier in real life!
Yesterday was a busy day in my sewing room and one of the things I did was to make the binding and label for this crumb quilt. At first I was a little undecided about the colour to use because the red does not really go with the backing but I liked it so much for the front I decided to go ahead with it. By the time I got it ready and attached to the front it was already evening so I sat down on the couch, turned on the television and just sewed away. I finished at close to midnight last night and this morning I finished up the little details like sewing in the thread tails.
Donated backing fabric
This quilt finished at 53" x 68" and is quilted in a loopy-loop design with white thread. It is a donation quilt and I will be delivering it to the local Project Linus drop off location sometime over the next week or two. I love the way this quilt turned out and I think it will make a wonderful quilt for an older child. Who knew that such small scrap pieces all sewn together could make such a pretty quilt. Many quilters throw away pieces that are much bigger than some of the pieces that I included in these blocks! The backing fabric was given to me by the lady that I purchased my quilt frame from. When she learned that I make quilts for donation to Project Linus she asked me to take this fabric and to use it in donation quilts. I have some left that I will use in a future quilt.
