Dear, you hold the heart of a true quilter. Waste not want not. I wish I had my scraps in such a organized state.

Waste not, want not is how I view food, fabric, etc.
Living awhile before I married, with a grandmother born in 1889 that quilted and had to be frugal out of necessity taught me not to waste, but always be thankful for what little you may have. Iíve always appreciated that lesson.

You are doing great in organizing your scraps. I have gotten into the habit of cutting leftovers from a project down into 5" squares,2 1/2 inch squares, and 2 1/2 inch strips. It seems to help me in finding fabric for a project.

The dark background really sets off all the color from the prints. Great choice!
