I am still working on my combat series.
I had said that I would create until either ideas or fabrics ran out. I don't know when that will happen. Scrap fabrics have a magical way of multiplying. It doesn't seem to matter how much fabric I use when sewing there is always an endless supply which seems to grow larger rather than smaller.
This time I am using my crumb technique to create an abstract combat colored piece.
I had originally thought to use the technique to create a background and then applique red flowers onto it. It seems that I have enough crumb pieces to be able to create a stand alone abstract piece
and also enough to create a background for the flowers.
It is relaxing and therapautic to create using the strip piecing technique.
After cutting these are my building blocks
And of course these remnants will be kept for another project, maybe fabric beads?
I always enjoy finding ways to use up all of the remnants and scrap pieces when working on a project.

The Crumb patchwork technique is known as a classic sewing technique for construction of fabrics. The ability to join pieces of fabric in varying sizes, and different colors and shades gives us an efficient and quality tool to create fabric which is perfect for art, home décor and fashion accessories.
