My crumb quilt

top is finished, except for the borders.
 and a black and white shot to make changes in placement of blocks - hmmm, it ain't easy!

I picked this up at a "yard" sale at Rhode Island School of Design.  It's an interesting textile, not sure what, but I like it, and it was only $1.

Now for a question:  I've done paper-piecing before, but I can't figure this out.  I printed out this pattern online.  But how do I place the rectangle piece of fabric so it covers the template properly?  

 Here's a photo of part of the pattern, (which I got from  It's called "Martinique."
If anyone has any words of wisdom for me, I would appreciate it!  My sister is supposed to look it over for me and try and help.  She LOVES paper piecing - me, not so much!  :-)
Anyway, I hope you all are well!  I've been neglecting my blog lately.  I have so little time to sew that I've opted to do that every chance I get lately.  And Monday I'm leaving for Florida for five days, so I won't be around till next weekend.  Have a great week, everyone!  May you bless and be blessed!
