I love walking into my quilting room and seeing these nice neat little stacks. Somehow my stacks have grown ... even though I haven't added any fabric. I think when I was over in the cottage, I was able to spread out more. I had some cabinets and a shelving unit in addition to a bookcase full of fabric. Now I just have the bookcase ... it is making me get organized and pare down ... that is good.
I have told you I am a saver of scraps, but I take my scraps and cut them into strips ... from 1" to 3 1/2" and then put these strips in bins
Obviously just a picture of the strips, but the bins are full and overflowing
A couple months ago in preparation for a new class I'm going to be teaching this year at the store, I made a table runner out of my stash. I loved what came out of the creation ...
Dip into your stash ... start with a small project to get your feet wet. Find a block that you like and make a few of them. This block was set on point because it really made it stand out even more. But you don't need to do that; just make a few blocks, add a border or two, and step back and admire what you created! This little venture helped me use about 3 1/2 yds of fabric. So there you go! Please let me know what you're working on and what you create. I would love pictures and also your permission to share it here and get all of us going in the right direction.
As I've said before ... the more fabric we can use, the more excuse we have for adding to it to deplete our losses!
