A "Crumby" Upload!

I finally got on the stick and pulled all my crumb quilts/projects/blocks into a tutorial page on my website.

I've been intending to do it ALL YEAR since Tonya and I had our crumby week over last New Years..but you know how life goes!

You can check it out here: Crumbs, Crumbs, Crumbs!!

My idea is to have a place where all kinds of crumb projects can be shown, along with how different quilters make use of their crumbs, so if you have any techniques, projects to show...let me know! I'm happy to post them!

In addition to my crumb quilts, I posted some charity crumb quilts that I did...and the book covers projects.

Send me ideas and pics if you have them and want them included!


  1. Thanks for the tutorial Bonnie -- I have some plans for crumbs in my future (after Christmas though!)

  2. Thank you for yet another fantastic lesson! I especially love the book covers. Off to find some instructions for book covers...

  3. Hi Bonnie,

    Yes, you do deserve to listed in McCall's magazine for great blogs. You are entertaining and are always showing us quilting projects. Your blog is always the first one I go to everyday.

    Keep up the good work.

  4. Oh boy....

    2 new tutorials, and you are moving??

    please can I have just a *little* of your energy??

    wonderful pictures and words as always

  5. I've been saving crumbs but didn't know what to do with them. This is great! Thanks!

  6. marvelous. but now I miss you more than ever!

  7. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for the tutorial on crumbs! I have a box full and was debating whether to throw them away or not! I had no idea what to do. Now look at all these ideas! I love them! Watch me use up my crumbs now!

  8. Wow ~ inspiring tutorial, to say the least! Not to mention all those glorious colors... I've been saving the little bits and even made a couple of AAQI Priority Quilts using some from a recent coffee-theme quilt, but now I'm even MORE motivated!! THANKS, Bonnie (and congrats on the magazine pieces!!)

  9. Love the bright colours! I learned this technique years ago called Mile a Minute and have made a number of quilts using 6 1/2" blocks...it will be fun to try it with smaller blocks..I can see how they would be easier to work with. And, I now have the Dear Jane ruler since I have started a Dear Jane quilt :-). Hmmm....a combination of DJ blocks and these little scrappy blocks would be really interesting.

  10. I am so glad that you left postings for us, so we didn't have withdrawal!!!! And these tutorials are great..got to get out my crumbs for leaders/enders! Can't wait to sew some...but gotta get that border on RRCB before the new mystery starts!
