Crumbs is a flimsy

I have the top for the Crumb Along finished. It still needs quilting, but at least the top is done. It was one of the things I finished up last week before going back to work. A couple of months ago, Laurie, my lovely daughter-in-law, asked for a quilt for their chocolate lab, Shelby. Apparently the dog has taken a liking to sleeping on Averys' quilts, and so would benefit from one of her own. And actually, Shelby is the only member of the family without her own quilt. So, this one is hers. I had a lot of fun doing this quilt. The whole concept of not having to have accurate seams, just working in a free form way was intriguing, and rather liberating. I'll probably keep this concept in my pocket, and bring it out to use in other quilts, maybe as the centre of stars, and that kind of thing, and replace the boring plain fabric squares, with crumbs. I'm linking up to the Crumb along reveal where, as the week goes by, there will be more fun crumb quilts to see.

  4. My dogs both have their own quilts, I put binding on my first efforts on my HQ16...not near as nice as Shelby's. It's a great idea, dogs do love quilts too.
