My scraps are out of control. A serious mess. About the only organization that exists in them is that they are stored in plastic boxes by size. But, I missed some serious fabric opportunities with this current scrap quilt that I am working on. And, I am so disappointed in myself for not spotting them when I dug through the box of 2.5 inch strips. I went through them too quickly.
So, I have devised a plan for that to never happen again. I am taking one box at a time and sorting them by size AND color. It’s a lot of shoe boxes (and a lot of time), but they will stack nicely under my cutting table. I do not want to ever miss that opportunity again!
I am a firm believer that the more varied the scrap fabrics the better the scrap quilt.
Onward…February proved to be a solid month for me. I finished two quilt tops on the Juki, and a third one is in progress. All “giving” quilts.
March is moving along nicely. My Monkey Quilt for my youngest grandson is completed. A year later, but done!
I still have 4 quilt tops to quilt, to be quilted before I am caught up to that stack.
And, two baby quilts to make for friends this year.
Why cant I win the lottery? I need more quilting time. lol
