I'm a day late, but still wanted to share. I needed to clear out some scraps and decided I wasn't sick of rainbows yet, and made this rainbow quilt. I always think it will make a bigger dent in my scraps than it does, I'm still almost overflowing.
I try to keep my scraps from getting too out of hand, so I have a method that seems to work for me. Scraps first go to a drawer in my sewing table. The scraps in this drawer get used a lot, it's kind of my go to bin for fabric. Once that drawer is full, I start sorting by color. I have a shoe size bin for each color (2 bins are missing from this photo). This is my limit--if the bin won't close I just have to start a scrap quilt. Currently my blue and pink scraps are really, really full. I've got to figure out a blue and pink scrap quilt I guess.
anybody have any great tips for managing scraps??
