2nd finish

Finally. It only took a year from start to finish. 

This is a crumb/crazy blocks that I used up scraps that many wouldn't use. It is like found fabric because it otherwise would have been thrown away. I then quilted it block by block and assembles after each was quilted. 

I used the deco stitches on my machine to do the quilting. I used a ton of black thread to do the stitching.The black mini polka dot really sets off the  brighter color in the crumb blocks. 

It is in the washer so anxious to see what the crinkled look is. I used leftover batting which was cut offs from quilting other quilts. The only expense was the thread and also the sashing fabric because the for the back was given to me. 

So thrift quilting can happen and still be attractive. I need to get some more crumb blocks made. I think I have about five stitched, but not squared up. I think a twin quilt will happen the next time. Chris

This came out really nice. The black makes it calm down.... if a quilt can do that!
