There are some days when I have time I can spend in the sewing room, but I can't figure out what to work on. This is most likely to happen when I have just finished a big project like completing a quilt top or making a set of monthly blocks. Sometimes I want to quilt, but my brain can't handle anything complicated. That's when I pull out the crumbs and strings.
Our April color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is light blue. I made six light blue crumb blocks and two string blocks a few days ago. I also finished off one yellow string block. These blocks currently measure 6.5" each.
When I went to put the blocks away, I discovered a good-sized stack of crumb blocks in other colors and decided to see how they looked on the design wall together.
Isn't that a cheery collection of blocks! If I made three more, they could become a baby quilt, 36" x 48". On the other hand, there are a couple of colors missing (pink and orange.) If I make blocks with those colors and maybe add a few more to the colors that are short (yellow, aqua/teal), I could end up with a throw quilt. 80 blocks set 8 x 10 would make a quilt that measures 48" x 60". For now, they will go back in the box until I get inspired to pull them out again.
