Flash Back Quilt: Kalissa’s Crumb Quilt

I decided to do a little flash back on some of the quilts I made.  Every so often I will feature one here.

Today I’m showing off my crumb quilt that I made for my daughter Kalissa.  Back in the summer of 2011 I was playing with itty bitty pieces of recycled shirt fabrics that I had left over after cutting up a bunch of shirts for quilt making.

I had not made anything with “crumbs” (tiny pieces of fabric) and wanted to give it a try.  Most often when make “crumb” quilts people simply sew the little pieces together to make larger pieces of “made” fabric.  Well I got bored doing that and started improvising making free form pieced blocks of hearts, stars, nine patches, flying geese and the like.   It was not speedy sewing but was lots of fun.

This was, by far, one of my favorite quilts that I have ever made.

It’s a super busy quilt but lots of fun too.

    I have always liked this quilt. :) Maybe one day. I made a few blocks after you posted the original quilt and I think you did some tutorials or a quilt along??

    I started working on this quilt when you posted the quilt along. I notice that it’s listed under the Quilts tab. I’ll have to go back and try working on it again. I love this quilt. Thanks for sharing.
