I finished sewing the binding on my Blue Treasures Quilt. The center fabrics are from my scrap bag of blues that I have been saving. A few years ago, I decided to save my scraps that I normally would have thrown out (I know, *gasp*) and make a crumb quilt. There are many inspiring crumb quilts around blogland. A few that have inspired me are Norma at Silver Thimble Quilting (scroll to her December 28th post), Tracey at Quilting in Connecticut (where I saw this layout) and AmandaJean's Crazy Mom Quilts (she is creating a monochromatic series of crumb type quilts).
I quilted it with Popcorn from Willow Leaf Studio. This block actually has a piece of fabric that I dumpster dived for when I took a class in 2003!
I even *sewed* some seaweed into this block. :)
This was a fun quilt to put together. Many memories are with the scraps, most scraps I remember but there are a few that I haven't *a clue* where the fabric came from!
When I told DD that the centers came from the blues scrap bag, she deadpanned and said, "Probably didn't make a dent in it!" How did she know! Will she become a future quilter? I sincerely hope so! :)
