My method of managing scraps is that when a bin gets full it’s time to design a quilt around what’s in the bin. I organize my scraps in bins by color, for scraps between the size of a fat quarter and charm square. Those smaller than a charm square go in a bits bin. I also have a bins with 1 1/2″ strips, 2 1/2″ strips and random widths. Well, my random widths bin can barely be contained by it’s lid. So it’s time to design a quilt using these strips.
I by sewing those strips into stratas and then cutting them into little sets of coins. I have a couple of planes for these coin sets. But so far this is all the progress I have with this new project.
I’d love to see what you are moving forward. Are you tackling an unruly scrap bin? Is a new brain child forming in your head? Or are you making progress on an existing project.
