What DO you do with all those tiny leftover fabric scraps (a.k.a. “crumbs”)? Be frugal and thrifty by recycling your scraps! A FUN and creative way to use the smallest amounts (at least 3/4″ on each side) of cotton scraps (strips, squares, trimmed triangles, leftover binding, funky sizes, etc.) from your stash – the ones you usually throw away because you don’t know what to do with them! Create your own fabric through crumb quilting, and then cut the squares for each block from your crumb quilted fabric! I decided to try using just fall fabrics in making the crumb quilted fabric for this quilt; and a combination of a white tonal and an ecru tonal print to give some “warmth” to the quilt. Please choose whatever fabrics you like!
