No Scrap Is Too Small For A Crumb Quilt

You can use this crumb quilting tutorial not just to create small quilts, but you could let your creativity flow and use them for bags, and blocks for larger quilts.

Sort your crumbs by color if desired

The first step would be to collect all your scrap pieces of fabric together in a pile. 

For this crumb quilting tutorial, I used neutral tones and low volume fabrics for most of it and I  had a separate pile of colorful and printed fabrics to add a pop of colour here and there as I went along. 


I start with small square or thin rectangle-shaped scraps and find two of either width or length.

Start with one of your smallest crumbs

I sew those two pieces together with a scant quarter inch seam and then find a third piece to add to one side of the two I already joined. 

Each time I add a crumb to another piece I then press the seams with my iron to keep everything flat. 

Iron as you go

I start a section and grow it until I feel like I don’t have scraps that are long enough to add to it. 

Work in Sections

Once you have joined the sections together you can then press them to complete the crumb quilting block or whatever other size you are going for.
