It’s a crumb-y giveaway!

Welcome to my new blog home! If you have followed my blog before, and you want to still, please do click the ‘Follow Piece O Cake Blog’ button on the right, above my picture. (FYI: I switched to wordpress because it is easier to manage.)

So, about the crumbs in the post title… I subscribe to Ami Simms’ newsletter and a little while ago she wrote about a student, Megan Null, who was making ‘crumb quilts’. Megan let Ami film her, and her video says it all:

(Link to video here.)

I googled crumb quilts and, who knew! There are pages of crumb quilts! It looks to me like crumb quilts started with Bonnie Hunter and have now taken on a life of their own. I have been too busy writing the color book to have noticed crumb quilts. Sigh.

Anyway, back to Ami. She has issued a 2014 Crumb Quilt Challenge! I generated a lot of lovely, colorful scraps when I was sewing for the color book and for a few days I thought I would start my own crumb quilt(s). I looked at the pile lovingly… and then I admitted to myself that this is not something I am going to do. My pile of crumbs could become your very own crumb quilt!


Everything in the box is pre-washed cotton—except for one piece of a silky polyester that is obviously not cotton. I was going to throw it away but thought maybe the winner would love it. There are little pieces and bigger pieces, strips, triangles, and other shapes.

If you would like a chance to win, leave a comment. I will have my random number generator (my mom) pick a number Sunday. I think I’ll be able to contact the winner from your comment but sometimes there isn’t a way to do that, so check back on Monday, mid-morning. I’ll post the winner. It could be you!

  1. Just found your give-away. Don’t you know that one person’s trash is another’s treasure? Great idea to share. I’m making scrappy quilts this year and this would be fun to have some different additions. Fun, fun!


  2. As a person with enough fabric to fill 1/3 or a 3 car garage I didn’t need an excuse to use all of those itty bitty pieces of fabric I store in glass cookie jars….but I started a crumb quilt yesterday…making 12 inch blocks…too much fun…I am never going to finish that wall hanging quilt I started in the class with Becky in Las Vegas…It was next on my list of UFOs to finish…


  3. I’m working on a number of scrap quilts right now and could definitely use the variety! Just came across your blog and sales page — where have you been!!!??? Love your work!

    Pick me! Pick me!!! (I’m jumping up and down and flailing my arms wildly!)
