It was time to hit the scrap pile again ;-). This top's now completed. I got the inspiration from the stripe piecing that I did on the back of this one.
I LOVE scrap quilts ... I give away almost all of my quilts to friends and family ... so when I make a scrap quilt, it's a bit of a trip "down memory lane" for me. It's not just what fabric was in which quilt, but also who I made it for and what we were celebrating ... a new house, a new job, a birth, a passing ...
As much fun as scrap quilts are for me ... the keeping of the scraps needs a little work.
I keep my patterned fabrics in plastic bags based on color ... seems green and blue are my most used colors.
For my solids, I keep them in a bag that came with a FQ set I bought last summer when I first started quilting.
Does anyone have a system that works well for them? I would sure be interested in hearing about it!
We're off to the cabin this afternoon for a long weekend ... taking the sewing gear, but the weather promises to be nice ... so we shall see.
All the best
