Now all my 2 1/2 inch blocks fit in a velveeta container. I have finished the 30 blocks I need for wonky wishes
quilt. Any squares left over, that I just wanted gone, I have paired together to make scrappy 4 patches. Any that I had 5 alike, I made sets for scrappy plus blocks. Slowly, but surely, I am sewing them gone. I went from this...
Here are the neutrals that are left.
I was in the organizing mood so....
I keep 4 drawers under my cutting table. One for 1 1/2 inch strips , one for 2 inch strips, one for 2 1/2 inch strips, and one for 3 1/2 inch strips. When I am cutting the last of scraps, I cut these sizes and drop them into the right drawer. When the drawers are full, I sort them by color into their more permanent home. I sorted the 2 inch and 1 1/2 inch strips . It feels good to get them into the right color drawer. I discovered early on, I am a drawer person, not a box person. If I have to unstack and open, I won't. It has to be easy, and pulling open a drawer is easy enough.
If when I cut several different fabrics into strips, I had to put each color away, I wouldn't. But I don't mind sitting and sorting a big bunch and then putting them away.
Next 2 1/2 inch strips
