I May Have A Scrap Problem: A Goal Recycled!

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

Well, back in April I didn't meet my Scrap Challenge goal.  In fact, other than picking up these over flowing boxes of scraps and moving them around the room over and over the scraps were untouched.  After 60 additional days the scrap piles in those boxes are even a bit higher!

May was so nuts I didn't even try to touch my scraps, but now it's JUNE, and by the end of June I will have those black and white scraps sorted, pressed, and ready to use!!  I am determined, my Netflix queue is full AND I have a new iron!  

Are you working on a scrap problem?  
How is it going for you?

Happy Scrapping!

I "had" a trashcan full of scraps earlier in the week - a trashcan full (medium size) even though I've made four scrappy quilts this year. So I decided to iron the scraps and cut them into usable sizes and give myself permission to toss those scraps that I just couldn't stand the site of anymore. I am happy to say that the only thing the trashcan holds now is leftover binding (which I need to measure and tag). The rest has been ironed, cut, and sorted. Whoohoo! Good luck with your black and white scraps.

scraps al sorted but then more emerge and back in a mess again, did take some strips and join them together then chopped them up so have done something with them, also used bigger ones in blocks that I waa trying out.

I just love the graphic - I may have a scrap problem. I too have a lot of scraps I need to tame. I have decided that rather than trying to organize just for the sake of organizing (which leads me to internal debates about the proper size to cut for future potential quilts), I am just going to make a scrap quilt, and then another one. That way I am reducing the pile, and have specific size or plan for them.

I haven't done much with my scraps but I did use all of my white scraps, surprisingly it was a little difficult since I had a few different whites and had to careful in a couple of quilts, the difference would have looked odd.

I really don't! LOL I've done a lot of charity sewing in the last year, and I've also been cutting scraps into strips to make some kind of quilt. I'm hoping to find some more scraps and pieces at a yard sale or estate sale that I can use to replenish.
I've never been one to just buy a lot of fabric not knowing what I'd make with it. Since I'm not sewing for my granddaughter as much, I've had time to delve into some other stuff.

Do you have a plan for your black and white scraps? I find that helps - if I'm anxious to make something in particular with them, I'm more motivated to cut them up!
