Cleaning, organizing, sorting, arranging, catagorizing, removing, eradicating, purging, pitching.
I am B-A-D, bad in this area.
I am not a hoarder, per se, but it's hard for me to get rid of it if I might be able to use it.
I keep it all.
I might use it someday.
One inch scraps, 'cause I'm going to make a postage stamp quilt someday.
I supppose it's the way I grew up.
I didn't know it, but I was raised a poor farm girl.
Poor monetarily, rich in every other way.
Anyway, we had what we raised and reaped.
So we used it all, including the scraps, no matter the size.
And I recently had an email from a friend asking about saving fabric scraps.
This basket is full of SOME of my scraps.
There are many different sizes in here, but most fit into the at least 2" wide by something category.
This picture on the right is a bag of scraps from a quilting buddy. A bag of scraps that is 15" by 15" by 24". She has no problem at all when getting rid of scraps. She just gives them to me. Some of these pieces are big enough that they would fit into my category of "fold and shelf".My question to you is this: Fabric scraps...
Fat quarter size, fat eighth size, four inch by four inch, one inch by one inch?
What size do you keep?
Let me know... I may try to get a handle on these scraps in the New Year.
Happy snowy Monday!
