Fill in the Blank
I'm working on a getting rid of some odd sized squares and using up some more of my crumb blocks. The more scraps I use, the more I seem to produce. On the left are the random four patches from a box of 4 inch squares I came up with while cleaning. On the right are some 5 inch crumb blocks left over after making Crumb Cake. I seem to have enough four patches to make an entire quilt, but I like the look of a variety of sizes and might end up using some of the four patches for something else. As far as the crumb blocks go, I think they look happier with a little space around them. I thought they got lost in the busy green sashing last time. I've also seen people just put them all together but I prefer to spread them out. I also sewed together some more leftover geese blocks and put another round on the wonky log cabin blocks. I didn't mean to be up this late, but sometimes one thing leads to another.
