*this post was updated to add the linky tool*
Well today is the day for the big reveal of the Crumb Quilt-Crumb Along with Me Quilt Along. Before the big reveal, I want to thank everyone who followed along, sewed along, cheered us along or read along with all of us. It was great fun and I hope to do something like this again. Thanks to the wonderful Bonnie Hunter for the crumb tutorials and to the wonderful Tonya Ricucci for her great letters. Those two gals are an inspiration to all of us.
Here’s one side…
Here’s another side….
I used a polka dot for the backing and a mini star print for the binding. It is quilted with red thread.
Here’s the whole quilt. I really love it. At first I thought the letters were too big. Now I think they are just fine.
Here’s another view.
I have seen so many neat quilts. Frances posted a picture of her completed quilt over on my facebook page for Jo’s Country Junction. Hers is all done in solids. It’s really neat. Then Lilah’s Grandma made the cutest quilt from baby Lilah. There are over 140 crumb quilt pictures over on Flickr. You can be looking for a long time.
I am adding a linky to this post and will keep it open until the end of the month. Feel free to post your finished quilt or your progress. Please make sure your link is to the specific post and not to just you blog.
If you are new to crumb quilting, you can learn more about it here. Kelli and I have been dreaming up more fun things for the new year including a Bucket List Challenge and a one block quilt along. Keep checking back to learn the details. Now I am off to clean up my sewing area. I want to be ready for Bonnie Hunter’s big mystery that starts Friday!! Today I am hooking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
