Cut The Scraps


Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict has a fabulous challenge for helping with that scrap problem.  Now as a scrap quilter, I don't want to use them up and I do have a very good working storage/management system.  BUT, I found I had an area that was in need of taming.


I have a lot of green.  Now this tote doesn't look that bad as I have worked some out of it, but I need to tame it more.


And I had a large donation of greens that are overwhelming the shelf.


Some sorting and some pressing starts - yes, I have a plan and pattern designed.


The cutting begins -  2.5" x 4.5" bricks for geese.  I need close to 300 of them, but I have plenty of greens to play with.


And those 'down to the last bit' pieces are getting cut for my barrel system which I use quite a lot.  It's a start.

Consider joining in - see what others have Linked Up for their monthly scrap challenge.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. If I can stop making and saving scrap's my job would be half done. I have started to cut up my scraps into 2" and 3" squares as soon as I make something. Save on the large scrap bucket I have.

  9. Every time I think I've cut all my scraps into usable units, I move something and find more. Think I'm part squirrel.
