My scrap pile has been waaaay out of control for a long time. So last week I decided to do some thorough cleaning out. I cut out a BUNCH of 2.5" squares to make some type of scrappy quilt, and anything smaller than that is going in the trash.
Yes, I did have LOTS of pieces that were too small to cut a 2.5" square from...! I have this problem that I think I'll make quilts with those itty bitty pieces, but in reality they all just make my bins so full that I can't find anything without half the contents spilling!
So here they are now, all nice and cleaned up and only 2/3rds full. I've been coveting those vintage wire bins that some folks store their craft supplies in, but I knew I'd be searching for years and paying big bucks to find them, so I settled for some nice shiny ones from SuperStore. These scraps were in plastic tubs before, which were all fine and practical, but this is so much more fun.
and the kids have been playing fabric store with all my tiny reject scrap pieces! (please don't be jealous of my rusty orange '70's carpet)
