This book arrived for me a couple of weeks ago, and I've been giving it a spin and making some crumb blocks. I still have a random box full of odd-size bits that I can't quite bring myself to throw away, and they were perfect for this.
I love Victoria's scrappy quilts, and the energy that this crumb piecing seems to give. But I did not enjoy making these blocks. It seemed to take forever, and it's awkward. I am the opposite of a perfectionist, so it wasn't the angles that were making me crazy, but something else. Anyway, I like the end result so I will have another go and see if it goes any better. Hopefully there won't be as much swearing and foot-stomping this time.
Here are the blocks. Hardly worth the bother really. The heat might not be helping, we're in the thirties all week this week with over 35 (my personal melt point) for the weekend.
