    Keeping my accuquilt busy. I've been cutting out shapes with no real plan in mind. Just a little here and a little there. I decided I would use up all my fabric. I think 5 bookcases full and several totes is just a bit on the nutty side. I even went so far as to wrap my fabric up on the boards and make it pretty. I decided that was a waste of time. I have Scrap quilts in my future....LOTS & LOTS I hope! It may take me a while but I am finding lots I forgot I had and remembering some of the dreams I had of quilts when I bought the fabric. Ya know what? I'm having a blast! And knowing that the cutting is done is just plain exciting! And these little boxes I picked up at the Dollar Store take up a lot less room and require very little maintenance & upkeep. =)

    What a great idea, I just bought an Accu-quilt, but haven't done much with it yet, I'm waiting for a rag die and a round flower die that I ordered, then I'm hoping to make a rag quilt or two. not sure what else I'm going to make right now. But thanks for the ideas.

    I have started to do something similar.
    My stash has just gone too far out of control - It is easier to buy something than look for it.
    I have so many silly bits and pieces. Even got a roll of cash register paper to sew the small bits I can't bear to throw out on.

    Ronna -

    I just got a Go baby and am in the process of doing the same thing. It is so much nicer to be organized and takes up a lot less space. Let us know what scrappy ideas you come up with !

    I love the way you did that.
    I need to buy those containers too. I have a lot of squares that need to be organized by size.
    Thank you for the idea.
