As a scrap quilter I don't think of this as purging, but the way I work my scraps normally. BUT, I really need to tame these. Blue basket is a mix of civil war, mini prints, blenders, and modern. Green basket is a mix of brights and juvinile and novelty prints. Old apple basket is lights and lots of muslin scraps - LOTS! A little baggy of skinny whites and white on whites and a baggy of a few strings. Those strings have been going into those phone paper blocks(see a few papers there - I needed a few more blocks - can't count).
I don't like to take my scraps and cut them down - they are yardage to me. I wait until I am down to the last useable or maybe I have just used that fabric too many times - then they are cut into my system. Snack barrels for 1.5", 2", 2.5", 3.5" and 5" sizes. I admit that I don't use the 3.5" too often - usually when that barrel is full, I pass them on. The 5" barrel is for left over charms - I tend to pick those packs apart and the odd balls go into the system. I can get a lot of mileage out of a 5" square of scrap, so I don't pre-cut those.
A lot of my projects come from those baskets and barrels. My 'Let's Book It' project is being made from them right now. Most of my doll quilts come from those and the latest Moda Bake Shop 'Trifle Dish' quilt - see, not a dent and that was a big quilt!
Now I did pick up a couple of strip bundles during Connecting Threads clearance (not sure of the line name - think a mix). But I am mixing them with some left over various FQs (yes, I tend to strip bundles like my charm packs), and I have a few different baggies of solid strips from jelly rolls.
Those are going into the 'Nested Churn Dash' blocks. Yeah, I was going to make just one, but I had all those pieces of fabric to play with. All my centers are the same as I find working with small pieces easier to strip piece and chain thru the machine. Ready for the next round.
The Purge project (see button on side bar) goes into the middle of September, so it will be interesting to see if I can clear out those baskets and baggies - NOT taking bets.
