    This is how I organize my scraps. I cut them all into strips and squares. I have strips as small as 1" all the way up to 5" and squares from 2" up to 6" and a few 10" squares from a swap. I bought the stacking drawers a couple of months ago so I have 9 drawers and I just love them for the squares and strips. I make a lot of scrappy quilts and this makes it so easy!

    That is fabulous. I wish I had more more to use the stackable drawers. May have to seriously get rid of some furniture. LOL

    Wow, what a wonderful way to have your scraps all organized. I've tried to cut my leftovers into strips when I have a little left & actually have them in one drawer.

    Fabulous! So organized! What a wonderful fabric stash you have & love the idea of pre-cutting all of the scraps to squares and strips!
