Homespun Crumb Quilt

I decided to try making a crumb quilt. I have had a block of the month quilt and fabric for over 15 years. It was designed by Winnie Fleming and made from plaid homespun fabrics. I tried making the quilt, which I think is beautiful, but only got to month three. I used a lot of the remaining fabric for this quilt.

To find out how to make a crumb quilt I found this tutorial:

Crumb Quilting: What's It All About

I sewed the pieces together to make  a size at least 9" x 18". This allowed me to cut two 8-1/2" blocks.

Some of the pieces I made large enough to cut 3 blocks. I made a total of 42 blocks.

Landscaping Project #1 is Finished!

We have finished the first major landscaping project. We still want to add a fountain and some yard art but the plants are in for now. Here are pictures of the project.

The grassy area to the left will be an extension of the driveway. It will be crushed granite and another car can park there.

Framed Blocks

 A great way to add interest to a quilt block or to make the quilt block larger is to add a frame.  You could also call it a border for your block.
