{Post #782} Crumb Quilt Completely Finished!

Wow, is this a horrid picture!  The crumb quilt is washed and dried and all quilty crinkly.  It measures 72" x 88".  I looked way back at the dimensions of the top.  It lost nearly 6" in width and length from the quilting, washing, and drying.  It started out being 77" x 94".  

Good news--I used a "color catcher" sheet in the washer...not a speck of color bled from the Thimbleberries fabrics! 


Here is the back...one of my friends saw it recently and said, "Oh--surprises on the back!"

Love, love, love, the back is great. most of my quilts are now made up of scraps, it seems to add life to the quilt.

It lost 6 inches during quilting!!! Wow - this is something to keep in mind for my next quilt. That's quite a bit.

This is a great scrappy quilt! I love the mix of crumb blocks and the traditional stars and flying geese. And, what a great use of orphan blocks, too.

What a great scrap quilt with lots of interest. Love the way you have used up your orphan blocks. The flying geese make the perfect border.
