Sew... I've worked over 40 hours in culling my 18+ years of a "scrap pile" of quilting fabrics and beyond. This project has required me to stand, either at my ironing board wrestling with all the wrinkled fabric that was squeezed into bags, boxes and other vessels to "contain" them all, or standing at my dining room table where my cutting mat lives. It's been a great exercise in organizing stuff that I told myself I would get to it "some day." I can thankfully say that this week has been that "some day."
Kudos to several members of my guild who graciously shared their thoughts on how they organize their scraps (by sizes, colors, types of fabrics etc.) that I truly appreciated. However, bee-mates, Mary Nielsen and Carrie Casto, have inspired me to stay the course and keep wrangling through my stash of scraps. It was great to stay the course, because as I found out, it has been way more tedious than I thought (and probably why I put it off for soooo long.)
BSoleille! The bright side of safely saying that I'm all scraped out!
Photos below indicate my piles, including the "Jenga" pile of 2.5" squares, and then how neat everything is now. Whew! Back to NeedleOnFull Tshirt Quilts and Long-Arm Quilting!
