I own scraps from most of the quilting and other sewing projects
I have made over the years.
I have heard and read about many ways to organize scraps
including keeping bins of certain sizes of cut pieces.
This seemed like a reasonable method which I implemented
until I found that I never use the scraps in that manner.
I decided to sort them the way I like to see my fabrics- by color.
I have sorted them into various plastic bins and baskets of the appropriate colors.
I love this system but still have scraps in all sorts of other places.
I finally found containers that were consistent in shape and size
and with a few exceptions, in all the colors I need.
So today I have started gathering all the fabric scraps from their various places
and sorting into my new bins.
In the process I came across this selection.
These are from a favorite quilt top I made but is not quilted yet.
Seeing these scraps made me very happy.
I will be making the quilting of it a priority.
I'll show you when I do.
