Single Color Crumb Quilt Block
Crumb quilting is essentially just making a scrap quilt but with really small, and sometimes oddly shaped scraps of fabrics – crumbs!
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
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.
I try to find pieces that are similar in size. Then line them up, right sides to right sides with a shared edge.
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.
