Crumb Quilt Block Using One Color
I like to have some sort of theme when crumb piecing. To me, this helps the overall look to be more aesthetically pleasing.
– Sewing machine – Sewing thread – Rotary cutter – Bits of fabric – Ironing board
What size should crumbs be?
There’s no set rule and it’s really about personal preference, but a typical crumb is smaller than a 2.5” square and generally, is at least 1” wide.
It does look a little bit nicer if the shades are grouped together. I try to find the smallest pieces to start with.
Sort your fabric scraps by color.
Line them up, right sides to right sides with a shared edge. Then, you can move on to piecing them together.
Line your crumbs up.
Next, you chain-piece them together with the sewing machine. I use a scant ¼” seam when I’m doing these.
Chain piece the crumbs together.
When I feel like I have enough pieces together, I cut the thread.
Each time I add a crumb to another piece, I take them to my wool pressing mat and press the seams with my iron to one side.
