This is number 20 in the “upcycled blues” series of quilts.
It’s also part of the crumbs/strings series.
Finishing it wasn’t hard - it was just that I couldn’t think of a way to quilt it. I waffled between an all over round design like swirls, to straight line quilting all the way through all the blocks making a grid. I did neither.
It’s super simple. All I did was make some crumb blocks using leftover pieces from the previous upcycled blues tops and added a shadow.
I then sashed them all and called it done.
For quilting - I wanted to somehow encourage the crumbs blocks to lift off the fabric if possible, so I actually didn’t quilt them at all, but quilted around them - tried to go free-hand free motion quilting with my FMQ foot - but in a straight line. Hmm. Need to improve that part of my quilting.
Since this is part of my upcycled series, this is a preowned duvet cover. Or rather, it was a pre-owned duvet cover. Now it’s a quilt back.

And, as always, a quilt roll.
I did this quilt on the weekends as part of my strings/crumbs project, so possibly you’ve seen this one before- maybe even several times! I’m glad to see it go into the finished quilts pile! (Which is getting pretty big, BTW!)
My sis works hard to give you great prices on fantastic fabric finds. Be sure to check out what she has!
