  1. I have a basket in which I collect them. I've made one quilt from its contents, but it's starting to overflow. Time to work on that again, or get a second basket. We're all collectors, right? I follow you on Bloglovin. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  2. I keep them organized by size-if super small I cut to a square, otherwise I keep by color. (Or I give away to someone else!)

    ReplyDelete
  3. My scraps are only partly organized (by color) and even though I regularly use them to make small and large projects they seem to multiply! It's a common problem, I believe. They are too pretty to get rid of though!

  11. I guess I don't deal with them good enough as they keep growing!! But right now I piecing donation quilts like crazy with those scraps. I did go through them a couple years ago and cut certain sizes for 5 different quilts, that helped to have them ready.

  22. I am obviously not dealing with my scraps very well as they are accumulating faster than I can use them. I try to make string blocks. Between projects to keep them in check. I store them in huge totes until I can get to them.

  28. My scraps are sorted by shape- squares and rectangles. Anything that can't be made to fit one of those categories is put into the scrap pillow- basically a rectangular bag that I made out of extra blocks that is being filled with tiny scraps and cuttings. Once it is full, it is sewn shut and becomes a bolster pillow.

  29. I put them into a basket as I sew and (in theory) sort that basket by color when it gets full. I keep the colored scraps with their larger cuts of the same color fabrics - I LOVE scrappy looking things so I find I use them more when I see everything at once!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Kepp scrap strips in a plastic container. Keep other scraps in a smaller container. Small scraps are always great for applique!

  33. Perfect prize package for me, Afton! I consider all of my fabrics scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I sort my scraps by color or style. I don't cut them until I know what size and shape I need for a project. Once they are down to string or crumb size everything goes into the same bin.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love scraps! I cut everything into strips and have at. I just made my first big scrap quilt last week...twin size is big for me. Love it. Need more ideas! And I follow via email.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I keep every last bit of fabric I can. I throw "left overs" from quilting and sewing projects into a bin and when I start another project I sort through the collection, looking for those I can use. I hope to some day switch to "pre cutting" the scraps into usable sizes and storing them that way. It will be much neater and easier to see what I have. I love my scrap bin!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I throw all scraps into a plastic bin or one of my drawers, & eventually go through them & make scrap quilts out of them. Organized I'm not

    ReplyDelete
  54. My scraps are getting a bit out of hand but right now I have then separated by color in cloth bins on a bookshelf. A friend and I are planning on having a scrap-tastic quilting year in 2018 to get rid of our scrap but I don't know if my poor bins will last until then.

    ReplyDelete
  125. After getting tired of digging through scraps lumped together I have started cutting them down before I put them away.

    ReplyDelete
  156. I love scrappy quilts and have a few going at once, so I try to cut up my scraps into the needed sizes right away--though I have a basket on top of my sewing cabinet where they accumulate until I cut them up, as well as a bin for strings and another for selvages that are both overflowing at the moment!

    ReplyDelete
  157. I love my scraps and as much as I'd LIKE to be more organized, it never really seems to happen. I tend to sort and store them by color, but the tiniest bits are in a jar near my sewing table. I love to see all the colors and let them inspire my creativity as I work!
