top of the green

 I found a big bag of green scraps that I wanted to sort and decide. It was a nearly full 2 gallon ziplock bag. I spent 2 evenings folding and cutting. green is the  color for March for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy.


By the time I emptied the bag, I had a tray full of new additions to my scrap user's system. These weighed 2 pounds = 6 yards of fabric= at least 60.00




Now to see if the new pieces will fit in my drawers. 5 inch size is a new addition this year to the cutting process. I haven't found the way I want to store them yet. I really haven't used 5 inch very much.

I also worked in my 1 1/2 inch strip bin. I needed green waffle stamp pieces cut for the month and any short pieces I found, I sewed with a neutral piece to use later. no plan, I just knew I didn't want them in the bag any longer.


I had a few additional green cut, so I made quite a few this month. It looks like most of the previous cut ones are blue.






This time I needed to make more strips of 5- 1 1/2 inch squares. I didn't have any left from the last time I made them. Hopefully these will last through next month's color of the month.
