I’ve had a few question about the crumb along…I thought I would answer them here so everyone gets the information.
In the directions posted earlier today, my crumb block shows the geese on the diagonal. Some quilters want to do that and are wondering how. It’s easy… Sew triangles to three of the sides.
There were more questions about how to get blocks to look more “wonky”….
Just make your blocks to 7.5 to 8 inches big. Lay your ruler on the top and rotate it to test out how you want to cut your block. I added a little illustration.
Image that these are all identical blocks. The dotted area is the six inch size we need. The block will end up looking “wonky” just by a twist of the ruler.
Remember to save all of the cut off pieces. We’ll use them later.
Anymore questions….ask away. Full Crumb Along directions for week #2 are here…don’t worry. You didn’t miss them.
