I’ve been working on a lot of scrappy blocks lately (secret blocks)
And they are sorted by color.
I figured I’d show you what I’ve come up with.
As you may have seen before, I have these nice red study boxes for my scraps, but I only have 6 of them, don’t have room for anymore.
And they are STUFFED!
Many of the boxes double up on colors.
Like this red one also has pink and purple in it.
And the blocks I’ve been working on I didn’t want repeats so I’d toss the “used” fabric scrap into a plastic bag and plop it on top of the box.
Then I got this idea about dividers and the only cardboard I had on hand were shipping boxes, so I cut 11 3/4” squares ( the boxes are 12”) and then in the middle I cut a slit up half way and the same on a 2nd piece and they fit together perfectly!
See how in my “black” bin I have Black, dark brown, light brown and tan.
Ahhhh! all nice and neat now- not pretty but it works!
Now onto quilt tops.
I have hangers with my quilt tops on a wire shelf, now I’ve added a zip loc bag on top so it can store the binding and quilt label.
Meanwhile I have a dry erase board with the tops listed.
Name of the quilt, B = binding, I either put a check mark or a number of strips needed for the binding, size of top, batting and backing and R= ready to quilt.
