How do you organise your quilt scraps?
After recently washing my entire fabric stash (read: don’t do this if you ever want to look at your pinking shears, washing machine, dryer and iron in the same way ever again ..), I’ve realised I have a lot of quilt scraps in a big bundle under my sewing desk.
It doesn’t look that bad, but it’s like this big gnarly beaPreviewst that has been in the back of my mind.
So. I’m going to wrangle the beast. And by that, I mean organise my scraps so that they’re usable.
Right now, all I do is through them into this bag when ever I have a scrap. There are all sorts of sizes .. From tiny little bits, to decent size bits.
I’ve seen lots of scrap quilts around and I think to myself, ‘wow – that looks great!’ and I’m inspired .. but the inspiration dies a slow death as soon as I look at that scrap bag.
I’d love your feedback on how you organise your scraps – by colour, by size? What size squares / strips do you keep?
Here’s a bit of my research if you’re inspired like me and looking to organise your scraps.
Scrap System .. So jealous of this lady’s storage! I wish I had that space!
