I chose the Crumb Jumble pattern in Bonnie K. Hunter's book, String Frenzy (affiliate link), because it's a great pattern for busting some my bright scraps for a baby!

scraps and crumb blocks

Those little crumb blocks on the right, went on to become pretty blocks,

and when set on point and alternated with a solid block,
the result is a pretty awesome baby quilt!

Can't you just see a little one rolling around on this while in the park with Mom and Dad? And there will be fun things to find too: a cat, a frog,

and a butterfly too!

The backside is just as fun, with the sun, the stars, and the moon.

The original Crumb Jumble pattern in String Frenzy (affiliate linkis for a 72" x 84" quilt, which being my usual self, I resized for a baby quilt. Turns out, I over-estimated the number of blocks, and so will have two baby quilts instead of one. Once I get the second one together, I'll show it off too - it's going to be a girl's version.

And if you've gotten this far, there's a giveaway for an e-book copy of String Frenzy - just leave a comment below to enter to win! I'll draw at random on April 11 - be sure I have your email address for C&T to send it along. And for a second chance to win an e-book, hop on over to this C&T Publishing site to enter to win!

Happy String Quilting!
