I knew I’d get questions on how I put it together…so as I was constructing it, I took a few photos.
When working with crumb pieces, everything that you learned about bias, forget. With crumb quilting it make no difference if there is a bias or no bias. I started with TWO crumb blocks. Each is 6″ square. One block has a block or design. The other block is completely random. Cut the random block in half on the diagonal.
Take those two triangles and sew them onto the crumb block.
Trim the overhanging pieces off.
Sew a 6″ neutral string block. Cut it in half on the diagonal making sure to cut with the diagonal. Sew them to the block.
When the blocks are sewn together, they create the fun neutral secondary pattern.
See, that wasn’t hard. It just looks harder than it is….If you have questions, ask away!
