Cookie Plate Crumb Catcher

I needed a Christmas gift, so I took a break from making the 365 blocks to make Julie Cefalu’s Cookie Plate Crumb Catcher.

Cookie Plate Crumb Catcher - Table Topper

Julie’s patterns and tutorials are easy to follow!

I used the bonus half square triangles that I made from the pattern to create the wreath design for the back of the quilt.

I know that you may not be able to see from the photos, but the blue is a sparkly fabric…just right for Christmas!

Perhaps you would like to make one, too! Or maybe you would like to make one of Julie’s other patterns…she has great gift ideas!

The oak leaves haven’t dropped yet, but they are turning. I think they are pretty cool!

  1. That is really cute, and who doesn’t love sparkly fabric! I notice the cookies are all gone . . .

  2. What a concept – A cookie plate crumb catcher! This is perfect for using my collection of beloved, but hardly used holiday fabrics in a more artistic rather than bombastic holiday way! I think we’re on the same wavelength with that stylistic approach (ie-that wonderful Lone Star quilt).
    Questions: How long did this take for you to make? and, About how large does it end up being?
    I may not get this done for 2022, but at least I’ll have a start on 2023!

    Plus learning to bind those 8 angled edges will be my learning adventure when I get to that point. (no pun intended)
    Thanks for the info, Laura. The tutorial is very clear & doable and I’ve downloaded the pdf in my ‘Christmas 2022’ file. One can be optimistic – right?!

    • It is about 15″. Due to time issues, I took a couple of days, but an afternoon is probably enough. I admit, I didn’t pay any attention to the time. It was easy. The longest part was creating the backing with the leftovers (a Laura thing and not part of the pattern). And those binding edges…I winged it…didn’t bother looking for a tutorial. Ha, ha!
      I think this would be great in any seasonal color combo! Worth making again! You are right…it is a good way to show off your holiday fabric. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hi Laura! What a fun idea and a fun name for the project, too. When you mentioned that perhaps we might like to make one OR maybe you would like . . . me to make one for you. Yup, that’s what I thought you were going to say. HAHAHAHAHA! I was thinking that was so nice of you to offer, and then I kept reading. Oh. That’s not what she said. heehee. Your crumb catcher looks so cute and that Tea Time pitcher is the perfect addition. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    • That is very funny, Roseanne! It would be a wonderful thing to do, however, if one had the time and the postage to offer to anyone!๐Ÿ˜

      • I thought it was humerous where mind my went while reading your sentence! Really – why on earth did I think that?!! {{Hugs}}

      • Aha, so you’ve noticed the USPS postage skyrocketing increases, too? Just sayin’…something I mailed exactly the same and to the exact same address from the same origin point (my town) has gone from 1.40 to almost 7.00 since last March/April. And the package itself weighs less than 12 ounces…Not even gonna think about the holiday gifts conundrum looming in the very near future! (You being a former postal worker I thought my odd comment to be relevant!!!)

        • Oh yes, I notice! Ha, ha! Still…it is less than international shipping. I hate being forced to resort to email gift cards, but honestly, that is a budget saver, and has worked out for me several times.
