ok, so I HAVE to know. WHAT do you do with all of your fabric scraps? I have mine in a big bin. It's the only thing I could think of that didn't have me tweaking out in an organizational fit. I could spend HOURS sorting them by size or color or designer or theme...for now they're in a heap.
Help is on the way! The amazing Anna Maria Horner has started a project to help those in need after recent flooding devastated parts of Tennessee. It's called "Rainbow Around The Block" and you can find more details here. Basically, the premise is that while people may have the money/aid to get back on their feet, many of the sentimental items from their lives are lost forever. This is a much more personal way to reach out.
They're asking for 12.5" by 12.5 inch quilt blocks of single colorways and the blocks will be sewn into quilts for families in need. I LOVE this idea and am going to attempt to sew at least 1 block/week until the submission dates are over. I think that's reasonable...we'll have to see, though! I mean, I guess I do have a job and all....but this seems so much more worthwhile! ;-)
Really though, outside of the project, how DO you keep your scraps? And how do you decide what stays and what goes? How small is too small? How big is too big to be in the bin? Is there a method to the madness???
