I already had a growing pile of crumb blocks, and, was excited for the idea on how to use them. I worked on it, off and on, for awhile, and then, it disappeared into the ufo void. The ufo void must be a fascinating place.
I have wanted to finish it many times, and there was something else more pressing, or it would get lost. I found it this time when I found a bundle of fabric I didn't remember. I had bundled potential backing pieces with it, and it had gotten folded with the pieces on the outside and the top wrapped on the inside. goofy.
This was the month I decided to make it a one monthly goal. As soon as I make the binding, it is ready for the longarm. I still have a few days to get this finished.
The cornerstones were also a crumb block.
There were 3 borders.
Bonnie says it was inspired by this antique quilt from the early 1900s. The bold colors are definitely hers.
I haven't seen very many of these out in the quilter universe. I don't know why. I think it is a great stash buster and has a great impact. I like working with shirts, they have such a nice feel to the fabric.
