Managing Scrap Bins

As any quilter knows scraps have a way of multiplying.  Before you know it you have bins that are overflowing with bits of goodness.  What’s a girl to do.  Make a quilt of course.  When my blue bin was overflowing I made this one.

When my green bin couldn’t be contained it became this.

 My low volume bin has a way of filling quickly and I’ve been able to make this quilt

 and this quilt.

 Well, I can no longer put the lid on my grey and black bin so I’ve dumped it into a laundry basket so I can see every little bit more easily.

And today I hope to find a solution to that overflowing bin. Save 20% at Keepsake Quilting with Offer Code KQ1512
