Just thought I would share what my issue was here.
And that is not all of it. That is just the mess, there are more tubs that need gone thru and organized. I do have a strategy set in mind. My daughter, yep the one who got me started on finishing ufos last year, is going to help me sort the fabric scraps. Should I put in my small fqs with the scraps to just get them used up? Not the large yardage, that will go in a cupboard so I know where to pull from when I need a base for scrap quilts. Back to what I was saying there, sort scraps by color ie: red, blue, brown, orange, etc., then sort by light, medium, dark, via each color. How best to store them? I was looking at a 10 drawer storage unit, but not sure if one would be enough becasue there are a lot of scraps. Maybe use the storage unit for the sorted scraps then use the bin for the cut squares when I am done. I want it to where I can just grab that size square and go. Then do I cut them by the 1/2" or what is best? Suggestions? The one photo of the cupboard of fabric is my Buggy Barn and that is at least sorted by the type of fabric it is.
