From pieces and parts, I am slowly making 72 florabunda blocks. I am mostly cutting the old florals if I come upon them in sorting other scraps. I need a 3 1/2 in strip to make the HSTs and a 2 inch strip for the 4 patches. If I find a piece that has that much fabric, I cut it, and stack it in the box. Finding the yellows isn't as easy. And I don't have that many yellows in my stash, it is time to shop for more. Bummer:).

I had enough for 3 of this fabric combo.

And I might get 3 from this one too.

My 3 1/2 inch strip drawer was full and wouldn't close. That is the sign I needed to sort into colors and launch them into the big tub. I keep an easily accessible drawer in my sewing room near the cutting table. I have 1 1/2 inch, 2 inch and 2 1/2 inch drawers as well. I just throw them in as I cut them. I keep a bigger set of buckets further away from the work area that I sort into by color.
When those are full it is time to cut a new quilt.
