Oh the overflowing scrap box. It was time to do something about the mess, so I bought two of these rolling drawer carts and stacked them up to organize my scraps by color. Before, I had two smallish boxes with all my scraps crammed in them and everytime I wanted something, all the scraps I didn't want would come falling out. I'm loving this set up much better, it's much easier to find what I want, one color at a time! Hopefully this will help me stay more organized.
My organization streak didn't last long though. Seeing all my scraps out made me want to play! I have a lot of pink and blue scraps so I decided to see what I could come up with.
I've been wanting to try the strings score from the Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters. Since I already have all these cut up strips, I decided to start sewing them together. I only know that I want long, vertical strips at this point.
It's pretty wiggly and fun so far!
I've got more pink scraps but I wonder if I'll have enough to make a throw quilt? This project will eat them up fast. Woo scrap busting!
