Crumbs from Samelia's Mum

In an uncharacteristic frenzy of cleaning and decluttering of my sewing room, I went through my scrap tubs and finished sorting the pieces into the different coloured bags, tossing the really small pieces into the bin as I went. By the end of the afternoon, my scraps were (mostly) nicely organised and I had a bin full of little pieces to throw out.

Go Green for Earth Day! from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Quilters are some of the most resourceful, green people we know! We are always saving up scraps and asking other quilters for ways we can reduce, reuse, and recycle quilting and sewing materials. We never want to throw anything away if we don’t have to!

In recognition of Earth Day and being green, here are a few ways that we choose to reduce, reuse, and recycle to demonstrate our support for the environment!

Found Fabrics

Found fabric is fabric that you can find . . . anywhere! Make a trip into your closet, into a loved ones closet, to the closest thrift ...

Crumb Quilting - Another Insanity Project from Grandma's Red Needle

 Hello everyone!

We all have scraps in boxes and bins, don't we? Tell me if you don't have scraps! I am no exception! I find it very hard to throw pieces that actually can be used. I cut squares in sizes from 1.5 up to 5 inches. I have done pretty well with 1.5 and 2.5 inches, but the other sizes are still in boxes. 

For some years, I have saved HST's, 1.5 inches strips, error and leftover blocks. The idea was to make a scrappy HST quilt, but.... I love HST quilts ...

How to piece crumb blocks into larger pieces of fabric from Quilt Social


My first crumb quilt made on the Brother Innov-ís BQ3050


Today, I’ll show another project using the same crumb quilting technique, but this time I’ll be using dark-colored scraps. The batiks are so easy to use in a project like this, as the edges don’t fray or stretch. This is really important because of all the bias edges that occur when crumb quilting.

Here are the basics for creating the crumb blocks, but please refer back to the QUILTsocial blog posts on Days ...

Now it’s time to use my new fabric. Of course, I could have kept making these crumb blocks, but I wanted to get on to another project using my dark batik scraps. So I decided to make a little wall quilt which could also be used as a table topper.

Let’s get started!

  • From crumb fabric, cut 9 – 6½” blocks.

Crumb quilting: What’s it all about? from Quilt Social

Most quilters can’t bear to part with scraps of favorite fabrics and tend to keep them in little bins and boxes for future use. Crumb quilting, although not a new idea, is enjoying a resurgence now as we try to use up all those bits of fabric we’ve been saving. Basically, it’s sewing small pieces of fabric together to make new fabric which can be cut up to make blocks, borders, sashing and more.
