I decided to make a cutting hit list for scrap management. You can read about it here. It has been a month. and, I am surprised at how much I have gotten done. I made a list of what I would need to cut for a few quilts in my ufo and maybe someday lists. With a pile of scraps, I move down the list and cut what I can to fill the need for these quilts.
It went from neat and tidy stacks to zip lock bags as I cut more and more. I am not worried about numbers yet. If when I am ready to make these quilts, and I have cut too many, I can always feed the extras into the scrap users system I have used for years.
Diffusion is a quilted twins free pattern that is simple 9 patches. I am cutting in fall colors with 2 inch strips. If the scrap is not fall color, I go to another quilt on the list. I have a gallon zip lock bag full of strips.
I think I can say I have cut enough for unity clue 5, and, will retire that until I have a chance to sew that clue.
I am sure I have enough cut for Suzie's snowball so it will go back to the ufo list.
The rest are still active, but, I need to add some projects to the cut list.
