How long will it take to use up all these scraps? Walking down memory lane to a day when I was envious of the quilters stash, dreaming of the day that I could just open up a cabinet and make a quilt. No running to the store for fabric. What on earth was I thinking! What you see below is just the tip of the iceberg. My honey stash of fabrics I love most....at least for now. There's several more of these bins scattered about the studio with not so loved scraps. Is it possible to use up all the fabric purchased over 20 yrs? Not if I don't stop buying it!
Well one things for sure, whining about my quilting disorder doesn't make a bit of difference if there's no action. The best way to use fabric up fast is to make quick simple quilts, right? Well I spent all day yesterday sorting and cutting.
(68) 4.5 squares and (136) 2.5 squares is all I managed to get cut. Barely even made a dent in my stash. But they sure look pretty, and I'm anxious to stitch them into a quilt today.
So do you have any tips on scrap reduction and storage? By the looks of my scrap bins I could use some good advice!
Linking up with SheCanQuilt for Scraptastic Tuesday in hopes of getting some scrappy ideas and advice.
