A picture show of a different kind...the first two shows the crumb blocks I have been slowly working on...I think I have around 60 or 70 made. That would not go far if I sewed them directly together, which is what most people do. And I do like that look. But I am tired of making them, and plan to alternate the blocks with a 6 1/2 inch square.

The pictures below those two give an example of the oak leaf and reel blocks that I have made...I have 12 of them and they need to be squared. Forgive the strings....I used the light fusible-window method to attach them, then did the blanket stitch around all edges by hand. See, I used to get a lot done.

Anyway, I am thinking about how I want to set them together, and I may not get it done for a while. But I would love to get a top made from them and machine quilt the quilt. I have something I am sort of anxious to try. Maybe I shouldn't admit it cause I may fail miserably, but you don't know till you try. And my mom said the only people that don't make mistakes are the ones that don't do anything.
