Crumbling More Houses!

Having finally got on board the Crumb Along, I was able to add another house block today to the ones I started making this weekend:


You can read about my plans for these and how I got them started in my last post

When Jo announced the Crumb along I hadn't realized was that she was planning to do tutorials for specific (liberated) block units made of crumbs (like flying geese and stars). Today's log cabin blocks go right along with what I am doing with my houses so I hope in the coming days to make a few of those as well as some of the other units too.  While these were not originally in my house quilt plans, I am now thinking about how I can use them as border or sashing blocks or fodder for the back or label.  If all else fails, they can become orphan units for another quilt.  We'll see what develops!

Your houses are so cute and a great use of crumbs.

I had one of those moments... when I have to remind myself to close my mouth... when I clicked on the link at Jo's crumb-along post to get to your blog. What a fun crumb block! I love these little school house blocks. Is there a blog comment equivalent to applause? or standing ovation?

Oh my! I see another project down the road - a crumb house quilt! Always wanted to do a house quilt and this will be another use of those scraps. Thanks for the idea, Vivian. Yours are so bright and cheery.

Oh my goodness, I LOVE these. What a great Idea!!!! Be prepared to be imitated, which is, after all, the sincerest form of flattery. LOL

These are wonderful. I love them...They'll be perfect to add to a crumb quilt or great all on their own.
