I'm linking up with Nicky and Leanne for Scraptastic Tuesday this week because at last I've got a scrap project to talk about!
I haven't mentioned my scrappy crumb blocks for a while, but I did tell you all about them quite some time ago. These are little 5" scrappy charm squares which I've been stitching up over the past few years on the tail end of other projects and leaving aside for some future purpose. These are mostly either less than 2" wide or 2" square and making up the little squares as I go along helps to control my small scraps basket.
In my current programme of clearing out and condensing all of my sewing supplies, I thought now seemed like a good time to use the little squares in a project. So after a quick layout and whipping up a few extra blocks to fill some of the gaps, this is my rainbow crumbs quilt. (I took the picture in horrible glaring nightime light - sorry.)
Getting them all stacked and labelled ready for stitching together was progress in clearing the two little storage boxes in the top pic - so that's a success for condensing, right?
And now, I have a small colourful rainbow flimsy with what feels like a thousand seams awaiting quilting.
Interestingly, this little quilt top got the greatest response any of my IG pics have generated to date. Who'd have thought that a wee quilt top full of scrappy leftovers would be so very popular? Seems everybody loves a rainbow and scraps!
