Cleaning up the Crumbs ...

I love working with scraps and often start with my (sorted by color) scrap bins when making blocks for the Block Lotto or other projects.   But lately, I keep finding that most of the scraps in my bins are too small.  I have been thinking of cleaning out the crumbs for a while ...

Today I used up most of the almost-always-too-small scraps and a few larger ones from the red bin and put them together into two big crumb-pieced squares–one is redder and one is pinker.

Red Crumb Square Pink Crumb Square

Each square measures between 13 and 14 inches.  I wonder how many more I can as I work my way through the scraps ... maybe enough for a small crumby quilt?

I love making something for nothing. These crumb blocks are great!

No crumb is EVER too small for me!!! If it can hold a decent seam on all sides and a little of the fabric still peeks through I use it!!! LOL, I consider myself an
"Extreme Crumber"!!!

It is satisfying to clean out those scraps though!
