Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I tackled scraps of flannel today by creating crumb strips of fabric. You will find yourself creating more and more things because there are workable units available for immediate usage. Congrats on your determination to organize your scraps. It takes time at first, but soon becomes a habit as part of the gathering/cleaning after your project is completed. With a fresh slate, your creativity will soar and you will have the satisfaction of using all of your fabric. :-)
I keep asking how this organization wears me out and how I make even more mess and can't see progress. (not to speak of the comments coming from my family.) How have I made a mess in four rooms and how can I get back to one room.
I think you are making real progress.
Congrats, great job!
cedar city ut and i am a fabricaholic & i have a few other addictions-scrap booking is right up there w/ fabric
great job whipping them into submission,lol
Congrats on making progress with your scraps!
Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
Bonnie Hunter swears by cutting up the scraps from each and every quilt she makes as part of the cleaning up process. I wish I had the discipline to do this. I usually am deep into the next project before the first one gets close to being put away! But I too am determined to keep my scraps under control in the future. I now have a bin I keep on the cutting table for scraps too small to go back into the FQ bins. From now on, when it gets full, we will have a scrap cutting day!
"Piecin' a quilt's like livin' a life...The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out and put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a heap more in the cuttin' and the sewin' than there is in the caliker...I've had a heap of comfort all my life making quilts, and now in my old age I wouldn't take a fortune for them." (Eliza Calvert Hall, Aunt Jane of Kentucky)
Great job!! Love it when I get something all organized.....
Great idea! I am going to start doing mine tonight. so much neater and seems to take less space.
It is looking good. You will get there; keep up the great work!
