How to Use Crumb Fabric with Your Accquilt Go

By February 16, 2022Blog, patterns, Scrap Busting

Creating crumb fabric with your scrappy bits is a fun way to relax while using up those tiny pieces. But what do you do with those pretty chunks of fabric. I’ve got a whole book full of ideas. If you’d like to learn how to make fabric from your scrappy crumbs. Try this tutorial.

Now that I’ve become a Go Getter for Accuquilt. I’m exploring more options for my made fabric. Accuquilt makes cutting my crumb fabric a breeze. I’m exploring the Carpenter’s Wheel Block on Board. What I’m learning can be applied to any of the dies. I feel they work particularly well with the Block on Board dies. This method would have made my double wedding ring go so much faster.

I start by choosing which pieces on the die I want to be crumb fabric. Next, I cut it into chunks to fit the die. I layer my background 6 layers on the die. The made fabric I only layer 2 or 3 layers. Once the pieces are cut. I clean up any bulk around the edges. Then spray them with spray starch to stabilize them Following the Block on Board instructions on the die I create the block. Rinse and repeat for a beautiful quilt.

I’ve created a little video tutorial to show you what I’ve learned. Just incase you would like a new way to use your Accuquilt as well as a fun way to put those unique pieces of made fabric to use.

    Oh my gosh! I am so pleased to see you “unsewing the little bits at the edges of your crumb fabric pieces. I always do that, but haven’t seen it referenced in any books. I own your Crumb Quilts book! I’ve been making crumb blocks sine I happened on Bonnie Hunter’s tutorial years ago! Crumbs are my favorite! Thanks for the tutelage about using the Go cutter. I don’t own one yet, but it’s on my list!

    It would be so nice to get the template of each piece of the butterfly, like the magic tile blocks. I’m sure it can be done. It’s beautiful ❤️ love it
