Late last summer, I was at a loss for which quilt project to do next. I decided to do some free piecing of my scraps and crumbs of hand-dyed fabric left from previous quilts. I’ve made a lot of greeting cards this way, and I decided to see if they might add up to a quilt.
The result is “Crumb Cake,” which I finally completed over the past weekend. The quilt is approximately 24 inches wide by 27.5 inches high. The quilting designs vary from block to block. I have had trouble capturing the detail of the quilting in the picture.
The top had been done since September, and I began quilting it, then lost interest in the project. I decided to apply myself this weekend and finished the very detailed quilting in silk thread, a technique I learned from Diane Gaudynski, a master of fine quilting.
