My Dear Friend (DF) gave me this awesome AND unbreakable wine glass for Christmas. As I was sipping a beverage this weekend, thinking of quilting (of course!), I decided this will be my new quilting motto.
How to always be prepared you ask? Well, Sandy is always prepared! She has scraps all cut out in different sizes, just waiting to be added to a quilt creation. Me…not so much! This is what my scraps looked like…and there was another bag overflowing in the closet!
Even Norma, my Bearded Collie, was saying, “Please do something with these things!” OK! I got the message! I spent at least 4 days cutting all my wayward scraps under 5 inches wide into 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 inch squares. Scraps under 1 inch wide went into the pile below to be used as stuffing for a dog bed. Lucky for Norma and Sadie!
Small pieces and parts went into my “starters and enders” bowl.
I found a lot of binding scraps in my scrap pile. I
stuffed organized them in a zipper bag for when I need a scrappy binding.
Scrap management is a good thing.
I am now prepared for any quilt design that pops in my head!
