We are so excited to announce a new block swap coming up later this summer. We will be calling it the Crumb Club. Start saving your “Crumbs” for the upcoming Crumb Club. The Crumb Club is a block exchange with other crazy, dedicated quilters around the United States. I have included a blog address which has great pictures and instructions on Crumb blocks. It may be helpful!! Quiltville Blog. At present, I have a goal of a minimum 50 participates before the Crumb Club can be officially launched. At this time, I am taking names, addresses, phone numbers and email address (no money at this point). Email link information to: Pre-registration or pre-register on site at Crumb Club When it is a go, I will notify you and provide you with the link for a one time payment of $10.00. You will then receive the active list of quilters such as yourself who you will contact for the block exchange. Questions? Call Roberta at 208-465 -4412 or email at This will be fun and will take some folks out of their comfort zones, stretching imaginations and getting rid of fabric pieces and parts just too good to toss out. In the end you will have a quilt with fabrics from many different quilters. Goodie, no kits to buy!! We will be looking to have a minimum of 50 dedicated quilters to be able to launch the Crumb Club. Think about it!!! I will be keeping you posted on the progress.

If you would like to get on the Crumb Club pre-registration list now, just send all your contact information to, subject line: Crumb Club Pre-registration, or click Pre-registration. Your information will be shared with other members of the Club when it is launched.

Block size and fabric: Each block will measure 3.5 inches square and consist of at least 5 prints and solids but can be as many prints as you can fit in, keeping in mind a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Your block will resemble a Crazy Quilt block as the pieces and parts are randomly chosen and attached. The idea is to use the clippings, miss- cuts and left overs from other quilt projects without purchasing “new” fabrics.
Fabrics must be 100% cotton, quilting weight. No denim, velvet, poly, silk, wool, brocade, tapestry, upholstery or other exotic fabrics .
Blocks won’t be identical as there is no set pattern. Fabrics are randomly selected so the blocks will, more than likely, not be “color coordinated”. Blocks must lay flat.

Cost: A one time fee of $10.00 for the contact information of 50 participates.

Who can participate: Open to everyone in the USA only.

Unique Spool Responsibility: Upon receipt of payment, to send you a current list with names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of quilters eager to participate. The list will come to you via email in a PDF file or as a link (html) through the internet.

Your responsibility: It is up to you to contact each other through email or snail mail or telephone, deciding on how many blocks you want to exchange with each other (whether it is one, two or more blocks). Any cost involved including; stamps, envelopes, phone, envelopes and the like is your responsibility.

For the original launch of the Crumb Club, we will have a little incentive to get you going. Feel free to participate and share your creations.

Eligibility for awards: Six months from first list exchange to finished top. Collect a minimum of 50 blocks (more is even better), get your top together and summit your photo to Unique Spool for judging via email. Deadline is TO BE ANNOUNCED WHEN CLUB IS LAUNCHED. Tops can have sashings and borders using at least 50 Crumb Blocks in any setting you like. Minimum top size is 30.5×30.5 if you choose a 10 block by 5 row setting. Of course, other settings and/or sashings, borders, added blocks or whatever, will increase the size.

Awards: First, second and third place ($30.00, $20.00, $10.00) will receive gift coupons to be used for purchases on Unique Spool site. I am hoping to post pictures of submitted tops on line.
