Because Christmas projects are all finished I can take some time for other fun. I will be teaching a 2 night crumb piecing class at Midlands Tech - Harbison campus in February. (You can find details here: http://mtconline.midlandstech.edu/ ). I have used or given away many sample crumb blocks so I wanted to make some more. Then I decided I needed to organize my crumbs and spent many hours playing with and organizing my crumbs of fabric. I like to have the triangles separated because they are easy to use for hearts, stars, or shoo-fly blocks. Here are a couple of heart blocks I made; and because I used squares for the lower corners, I have bonus half-square triangle units.
Here are some of my triangles.
I also separated a pile of strings. String quilts are a new love and I have several designs using strings on my “wish to sew “ list so I am collecting strings and variable strips.
