"Crumb" Quilting {Tutorial & Giveaway}

First can I say … TWO tutorials in one week?

Uh yeah, and it was my week to teach art in my son’s class … and it’s the week I scheduled my ‘girl’ appointment. Add in a lunch date, Bunko, a babysitting favor AND an orthodontist appointment and … I.need.a.nap … stat!

Moving on … to bigger and better … or smaller and seemingly not better??

Have you heard of crumb quilting? Well if you’re shaking your head no, I was right there with you until about a month ago. That’s when my sweet sewing friend, Jodi, asked {er wait, I think I demanded to be involved} me to join her month of “Sew Scraps Along” on her blog, Pleasant Home.

As far as I understand {and I’m no expert on the matter} a crumb quilt is made from your smallest bits of scrap fabrics. In my case, the bits and pieces smaller than 5×5 that I would normally throw away {the horror I know, but ending up on Hoarders is a bigger horror}. So, I gathered my crumbs for the last several weeks {anything I would normally toss} and here is what I came up with::

How to make a ‘crumb’ block {according to me, for what that is worth}::

Start by picking a crumb of fabric as long as the block you’d like to end up with. Then layer another crumb of any size {RST} and stitch down with at least a 1/4 SA. You DO NOT have to line up edges. In fact you don’t even have to stitch a straight line. I however am a first-born, Type A personality who must have a little bit of straight line rule following in her life. Press seams outward.

** I find when quilting small blocks like this, it’s easiest to lower my ironing board and place it on my right hand side where I can just turn to the side, press a seam and sew my next piece. **

Continue to layer crumbs onto the ‘block’ you’re creating always keeping RST.

Feel free to switch the direction or angle of your pieces.

 
Once your piece looks to be the finished block size you’re after {I’m after a 5×5 finished block}, measure and take it to your cutting mat and trim to size. Save your crumbs!

I took the ‘leftover’ crumbs from cutting my block and used them for the starting of my next block.

Continue until you have enough blocks for your project. I think these little blocks would, of course, make a super fun quilt … but what about a table runner? Or pillow? Or even a set of coasters!
 
I decided I wanted to {finally} make a ‘mat’ to sit on top of my dryer and hold my laundry detergent and stain spray {which always seem to leak and reek havoc on the top of my dryer}.

I used 1 1/2 sashing {Kona Slate} between my blocks and around the perimeter.

I then cut two pieces of batting {to give it extra absorbency} the same size and a backing piece 2″ larger on all sides. I made my layer cake {backing RS down, batting, batting and top RS up} centering the top/batting on the backing. I did simple straight line quilting, stitching mostly on the sashing as to not take away from these little ‘abstract’ works of art.

Finished off with Rae’s cheater binding and my laundry room just got a whole lot happier::

 At work in the laundry room … making me feel slightly happier with my old, old, old, washing machine and dryer. I would love a shiny new set of front loaders … in orange … on pedestals, but I’d also love for someone to give them to me {buying them isn’t nearly as much fun}!

{Before}

{After}

I hardly made a dent in that bag of ‘crumbs’ I saved. I was shocked at what a lovely little piece I could create almost entirely from fabric I would have tossed.

So, I thought about sharing my crumbs with you … and while I’m sure you would have pretended to be thrilled about my little leftovers, I thought “why not give them some really good leftovers” {like lasagna the day after you make it … yum!!}.

Here’s what I’d like to send one of you::

A few leftovers from some quilt market sewing I did for Robert Kaufman. It’s *almost* a full fat quarter of 18 different prints from Betz White‘s organic line, Stitch, for Robert Kaufman. That’s over 4 YDS of fabric!!

  69. Hello and thank you for making this a fun day with a beautiful fabric giveaway. I love the idea of crumb quilting and have been doing it but didn’t know it had a name.

I will post a picture on my blog for all to see my crumb quilting.

  71. Hello Andrea,
    Jodi sent me over and I love your mat. I think that is something I need to make for the top of my dryer. I had to invest in a new washer and dryer a couple of years ago, and have used an old towel to protect the top. This mat looks so much cuter.
    And I would love a chance at your stack of fabric and am now a follower of your blog.

    Hello there! I’ve only just found you via Jodi’s lovely blog, and I’m so happy about discovering Knitty Bitties. I’m only just a newbie fabric-head, but I already know I’m addicted and in love with all things fabric and sewing and learning how to do everything and anything having to do with fabric. The mini-mat is adorable – you’ve inspired me to attempt my own version with my own scraps (few that I own…so far).

    I don’t know if I’m eligible for your wonderful giveaway, as I’m in Ireland, but if I do qualify, please enter me into the competition. You can never ever have too much fabric – fat halves, fat quarters, blocks, scraps or crumbs – it’s all fantastically fab!

    Have a great weekend! – June

  263. I just chose to follow you on Pinterest. I will check to se if that was successful .

  264. So very cute!!! Maybe if I make one, my washer/dryer will look clean and cute like yours does!! Guess that would mean I’d have to clean the laundry room……the horror!!

  415. Hello ! :) I wandered over from Jodi’s blog. Right now I’m pouting that I hadn’t seen this about 18 hrs ago. You see, that would have been the time I was clearing off my sewing table and tossed all my tiny scraps this would have been perfect to play with that were sitting there after cutting pieces with my Accuquilt Go cutter a month ago. LOL I guess I need to make more scraps and try this now. (Does it count if I take new fabric and cut it into scraps? Are those still called scraps? LOL

    Thanks for the tutorial. I love it.

  416. Thanks for the tutorial using crumbs! I would love to win those great leftovers!

  417. I love crazy quilting. It’s always great to see them used in different ways.

  418. Crumbs?! Now I know what to call the little pieces I keep from every project. My favorite shops around town put my treasures in a little brown bag. I end up using the little brown bag to hold all the crumbs from different projects. So I have crumb bags.

    Thanks to you, I now have a good idea of how to use them.

  711. Thanks for the tute. I just realized that my idea of scraps are crumbs! My idea of perfectly fine fabric must be other people’s scraps then 😉

  712. Hey there
    Follow your blog and “like” you on FB. I have WAY to many crumbs around my sewing room. This would be a great way to get rid of some of them! Thanks for the great idea.
