Crumb Quilt done

Yes! I survived the heat wave of 2012 while hubby was home on vacation. Must be cause I was able to sew. And yes, I was able to sew cause of the heat wave. He was bored. It was toooo hot even to go to the lake.  Sew, I was able to get the crumb quilt together. Too much fun.

It's rare that I put a sashed quilt together without cornerstones. Getting the blocks lined up isn't easy, but I succeeded here.

I discovered a trick I will have to try again. I was working at a sunny window and could easily see through the fabric to see that the seams were lined up. Great tool, the sun.

The crumb quilt is now in the stack to be quilted. The stack is only 6 quilts high, not counting my personal tops.The raffle quilt should be done today, too. I intend to make a bigger effort to quilt a little every day. That's opposed to piecing. I tend to do that while I talk on the phone.

I hope you were able to quilt through the heat. Check out the links on Judy's page to see what everyone else has posted on Design Wall Monday.

Love your crumb quilt. It is the second one I have seen this week and so I have begun collecting scraps (from off the floor) and putting them in a big plastic bin which will be my stash for a crumb quilt. I really like using up every piece of fabric I spend money on. Thanks.
