8 1/2" crumb blocks

Just as an experiment I tried making larger crumb block, fully 8 1/2".   I have 4 made and what I am going to do with them is anybody's guess.  For now they are decorating a sort of screen I made at work and they are the background of my blog - for now.   Bright and cheerful they are.

Several Quilt tops

This one was called Cameo...something.  I saw a friend working on it and just had to do it myself.  My version is a bit different, being rectangular not square and with a different border.

This top will have a solid black and then a floral black border put on.  It was a 2014 Saturday Sampler.

This will have a medium dark blue border on it about 7" wide.  It is from Barbara Brackman's Borderland in Butternut & Blue book.

This quilt top still needs it's dark brown border put around it.  It is batiks and will be for hubby when it is done.    The blocks were from a 2012 Saturday Sampler.

Tablerunners and mats

A small mat I made out of some too-small cut T's from my Hearts & Apron Strings.

This is a "Butternut & Blue" table runner I made in 2014.

This is what I call my "Titanic Floor" table runner.

Quilt tops & projects finished in 2014, part 1

The day finally came and I have a lot of pictures.  But maybe I'll break it down into more than one big post.
The first is a mat made from leftovers from a tablerunner which is getting the binding sewn down now.
