I don't know yet what I'll do with these blocks. I'm seriously thinking of making us a new quilt for our queen size bed, as the two we currently use are starting to show wear. I don't want to put a special quilt on the bed as long as the dog thinks the bed is his. These would make a great warm quilt for the coming winter that I can let the dog sleep on without worry. There should still be enough left for a Hotel Hope quilt. If not, there are certainly enough more crumbs and strips to make as many more blocks as needed.

I'm very happy to report that I've reached my goal. I can call a halt - at least for now - to my Crumb Chaos obsession. All of the partially finished blocks are finished. Looking like a giant stack of wild, colorful square pancakes - 338 completed 6 1/2" blocks. The drawers of oddball size strips - 1 1/4" and 1 3/4" wide - are significantly reduced. I've been able to combine the two into one drawer that is definitely less full than each were when I started. My tub of crumbs looks like it's reduced to half of what it was. That's still a LOT of crumbs but that's OK. I'm going to let the rest slumber peacefully in the drawer for the time being. I'm ready to move on to something different. (I'll share that with you tomorrow.)
