I've been reading posts about this Crumb Along for a couple of weeks now. I thought to myself, "this looks like fun, but not right now". Then, last night I was looking at the posts of various people who have finished some of the crumb blocks, and thought to myself, "this looks like a lot of fun, but not right now". Then, I went upstairs, took a look at my cutting table, and saw some trimmings from blocks that were red, and already had a triangle sewn on one side and thought that they looked like the flying geese for the first step of the crumb along, if only they had another triangle sewn on them. And the next thing I knew, I was sewing on the second triangles, and digging through my crumbs and strings and leftovers. The result......... 5 crumb blocks that I wasn't going to do.
They measure 6 1/2 inches square. The funny part, or maybe the expected part, is when I finished them, and went back and looked at the posts again, the instructions said to make 2 blocks. As you can see, I read instructions really well.......... not. (giggle). I'm not sure what these will end up as, but they sure are fun. And now, after I finish my second cup of coffee, I'm off to see if I can get the last row of Shakespeare in the Park quilted, and get him off the frame. In the meantime, I'm linking up to Jo's Country Junction where there are a bunch of others also doing the crumb along.
