Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Scraps!

If I can cut a 1-1/2″ square out of a scrap — or get a 3/4″ wide string out of a scrap, I don’t toss it. I started quilting in the early 2000’s and by 2009 I had a huge pile of scraps, plus scraps given to me by friends. By the end of July 2009 I managed to tame all of my scraps.  I even kept them caught up as I generated them until January 2012 when I got lazy again.  So, here we are 10 years later and I’m moving.

As big as my new Quilting Studio is, I have not worked out the fabric storage yet. So, I made the executive decision that any scrap not currently tamed has to go.  After all they do multiply when your back is turned.  I some of the scraps sorted by color, some bags were not.  There was that whole drawer of shirting scraps under the ironing board. I simply cannot believe I have 5 big bags of scraps!

Fortunately with a Facebook post I was able to find takers.
