Scraps Galore

Ok, so I'm trying to figure out where you draw the line when thinking "this is a scrap I should keep?" I have lots of little piles and baggies of scraps. Not because they're large, but because some crazy section in my brain thinks I can actually MAKE SOMETHING with them someday. WHO AM I KIDDING???

I'm busy making 4 blocks this evening, each a little different than the other, and I'm making plenty of little scraps. I finally figured it out....... If the scrap piece is smaller than 2" square, it is in the trash!

Wow - my trash is full of unscrappy fabric and I feel.....
FFRRREEEEEEEEEEEE

I'll post photos of these blocks eventually.

:-)

(feel free to leave a comment if you have any glorious ideas for your own scraps!)

Since you use only cotton fabric, you can make paper out of it and start a new hobby, Scrapbooking!!

Anyone who collects scraps has this dilemma. I have a friend who can make a quilt out of the smallest pieces of scrap...saves it if it is at least 1 1/2 inches square...if you want scrap ideas check out www.quiltville.com for a start!
Love her scrap quilts and you will get many ideas to play with...when you have the time LOL

If your like your father you will save everything until you reach 60+ years old. Then you will realize that you will not ever do all those things. So, you sort some of them and look for ways to get rid of others until you realize that it's easier, cheaper and faster to throw them all away.
