Curved Crumb Fabric Scraps

I made a Bulls Eye Quilt out of Civil War and
Shirting Fabrics years ago.
I saved all my scraps, of course. 

 
 I couldn't figure out how to use rounded and curved crumb pieces. 
I thought I would lose too much good fabric
if I cut them up into usable squares or rectangles.

 
 I decided to play with top stitching and the zig zag stitch.
It gave some fun movement and playfulness to my crumb blocks. 
It looks a little like an old crazy quilts.

 
Give it a try and experiment. 
Enjoy your art!
Be Blessed and Be a blessing!

That's absolutely incredible! I can't believe the time and patience that had to go into making the most out of each bit of fabric! I love the historic feel (reminds me of my great grandmother's crazy quilts) and the fact that it saved fabric from going to waste!

Really pretty, I save all of my scraps, too, in fact I don't have many because I always try to use them.
