Crumb quilt finished

Why do I always finish up my quilts on the windiest days? It's really gusty out there today! No way could I get pictures with my quilt up on the fence like I usually do. But here are a couple that I took on the patio. This is what I did with my crumb blocks:
 I put four blocks together for each row.... I really love the way this turned out! And on the back:
I love a scrappy quilt back. I had two blocks left so I worked them into the back. My friend Diann quilted it for me in big orange curlicues.... it's awesome! Another snuggle quilt for the couch, or wherever. That's four completed quilts for me so far this year.... I'm on a roll! And enjoying every minute.

This is my first blogpost on my awesome new Macbook! It makes me smile... I'm so lucky!

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your lovely comments.
I like you mug rugs and tickertape blocks you have made and your crumb quilt looks great. I really like the way you did the backing.
