Working With Crumbs

   Some quilters call them scraps but I like the name Bonnie Hunter uses for small scraps of fabric - "crumbs".   Today I pulled out my unfinished brown crumb top and free pieced several 6 1/2" blocks.  Then I decided to free piece "LOVE".  That went well so I decided to make it into the sentence "I love brown" which I think would be a great title for this quilt.

I want to make it a good lap size.  Right now without today's pieces added, the main portion is 40 1/2"  by 481/2".  I plan to add to one side to make it 42 1/2 by 48 1/2" before I add the sentence or more blocks because then I can more easily add 6 1/2" blocks all around.
