Crumb Along

Last night I began my crumb along journey with Jo's help.  Please check out her blog by clicking here  or by using the button on the sidebar.
   I have alot of crumbs and scraps that keep on multiplying!

Next I played with what was in my crumb bag and came up with 2 different styles of fabric.  Lots of reproductions and some brights.  I had a meter/ yard of blue homespun so made that my consistent solid.
So here is my bright flying geese version.

and then I did a reproduction version, which frankly was........


So back to the other version,

I cannot wait to see what the others have done.  Here are their links.
1. Deb  5. karen  9. Quilter Kathy  
2. Suzanne in Tx  6. Laurina  10. cheryl from MO  
3. Angie in So Cal  7. Linnea  11. Judy D in AZ  
4. Sandra  8. Beatrice, France  

Number 5 is me.

I did not go as random as Jo, and my block has a finished measurement of 8 inches by 10 inches.  So I will be juggling the arrangement of my blocks.  Please do leave a comment to let me know what you think......I value the advice.....this is way out of my comfort zone!!!!! I'm off on vacation soon and plan to take my machine with me and some crumbs!
So with out any further to do.............
Here is my flying geese block......


Love Karen, who is now off to check out what everybody else has done!

I guess it would be possible to have crumb envy! You are ahead of me at the moment. But I did get started on it today after work just like I said I might. Even went for a walk first before it got dark. I guess mine is going to be very random...
Thanks for coming by!

I really like your bright colors! Go crazy girl, trim some of those pieces crooked! I think as you get into it some more you will find it is easier to be more 'random' and get a more liberated look. Have fun crumbing on vacation!

I think the reproduction version could be great too, but it just needs more variety in the crumbs. My favorite is brights I must admit! Great start!
