blueberry crumble, yes please


Another scrap quilt all finished! 'Blueberry Crumble' was a fun make that's for sure. You will have seen progress photos of these crumb blocks over the year, and it feels good to be able to tick another WiP off the list. Totally inspired by Chris @afullenglish, gotta love his improv approach, with lots of recycled fabrics, corduroy, and that orange boilersuit fabric, oh my!

For my version, I used fabrics from my stash, including a few designer treats, a little 'outback wife' and Liberty, along with shirt offcuts and snippets of my mother's vintage apron. I used a vintage sheet for the backing and chose a wool/polyester mix for the batting. 

It was machine quilted in a straight line matchstick pattern by Leeanne from quiltmekiwi. The finished quilt measures approx. 58" x 48", a nice throw size. Linking up with Cyndy for 'oh scrap' here

Until next time, Linda

  2. So many scrap quilt finishes have come out of this pandemic year. Love seeing your creation. Though for me, it would have to be much larger, to START using up all the scraps that quiltmaking has generated over the years. I keep making scrap quilts, and scraps just keep coming!

  7. Your Blueberry Crumble quilt came out great! I especially love how you added that cutout floral bouquet to the mix; it gives the quilt the feeling of a collage. Just beautiful!
