Crumb along

Three things to be happy about:
(1) 20% off anything
(2) vegetable fried rice
(3) a mushroom and cheese quesadilla

I had to toss in that last one!  I stopped by the buffet bar at Whole Foods on my way home yesterday and the quesadillas looked interesting and I'd never had one from mushrooms, so I thought I'd try it.  It was rather tasty...  would someone please check on me tomorrow just in case the shrooms were toadie stools???

This week Jo introduced the triangles in our crumb along project! 

These were a snap to do and I like the way they'll look with the rest of the blocks.  I made a third one that I haven't bordered yet, I'll show that one a bit later. 

I also made another star...
...not jumping up and down about this one, but it should mesh with the other blocks when they're all put together.

Another flying geese block...
I think this one is right cute, I like the color combination. 

I also pieced together some plaids I trimmed from the other blocks and made this one...

I'll trim it to size when I need to insert it. 

I have Sharon to thank for the idea for these three!  I had some crumb blocks in my "whenever" bin that I brought out and bordered. 

They should work just fine...

Well, that's where I am on the crumb along... lots done but a lot more to do!

Sew forth and sew on...


  1. Love the mix of fabrics - such a fun group of blocks.

  2. Linda, these look great! I has to laugh this morning, I noticed your slideshow and saw your quilt that won in the Brown bag quilt along last year. Then it all clicked! I said to myself..I know her!!!!! I remembered that adorable quilt. Your quilts are really amazing, the fabrics you use really make a wonderful artful quilt. Can not wait to see yours finished!!

  3. You're doing a great job on these, and you're right, the colours mesh beautifully.

  4. I love you fabrics. They are so fun. Those busy neutrals are the best!

  5. AS a recent retiree called Lynda, I had to look at your blog! The crumb blocks are coming along beautifully! I'm a bit behind with mine (too many fingers in too many pies!) but I'll catch up.


Thanks so much for your comment, I like getting feedback! I can't promise to respond by email, but I do appreciate your visit.
