Crumbs to Blocks

I stumbled on Bonnie Hunters website Quiltville about 18 months ago and just love seeing the quilts she makes from all kinds of scraps but this project really intrigued me the most. I shared it with my evening quilt bee group and we all agreed it would be a great way to create our annual charity quilt project. Last night I used Bonnie's idea with the group and then we began creating.
I had asked members of both the day and night group to begin brining in their "crumbs" and we had a great bunch of pieces to start our blocks. I had done several "starters" to show how no matter what fabrics or shapes or sizes these are great little blocks.
Bonnie uses the tiniest pieces but it's totally up to the quiltmaker to how she makes her blocks. We got a great start as you see and will try to make 42 blocks which we will sash with black to make a quilt aprox 80x90...wish us luck!
