    The author Joan Ford has a website, youtube videos, and blog. Most of her ideas are there and lots of info.
    Got fabric?

    I cut mine 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 strips, plus 5 inch and 10 inch squares. I watch movies while I'm doing the cutting, and its very satisfying making headway through the scraps. Making quilts from those supplies is wonderful -- its just 'shopping my stash' and it goes quickly.

    Yes this reminds me of Bonnie Hunter's method.

    My challenge is I'm afraid I'll need larger sqs like 5 in or 10 in, not just 2.5, 3.5 or 4 and then 2.5 strips! If I cut up all my scraps into the smaller segments, then what, LOL .... decisions, decisions ...

    I've been cutting my leftover fabrics into the best combination I can get - starting with the largest square then moving down to 1.5" squares. If I have good strips, I'll cut them down to 2.5" strips. But I like the idea of cutting them into 5" and 10" squares. I'll have to set up a couple more bins for those.

    thanks for the tips!!

    Bonnie of quiltville says to cut scraps at 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3 1/2, she says 3 inches does not play well with others.
    This is the way I have always done mine and then store in labelled plastic shoe boxes. I do this with squares as well.
    When I just have a little fabric left over I just cut it up and put with the same size scraps. I cut squares starting at 10 inches and go down from there. I have mostly 6,5,4,3,2 1/2, and 2 inch squares.

    I just ordered this from the web site, thanks so much for the link. I have the Bonnie Hunter books but am always on the look out for new scrap patterns.
