Hello hello and welcome to my stop in Jennifer's Scrappy Stash Quilt Along blog hop! i have had such a great time seeing how everyone else stores their scraps. I was amazed by my lovely long lost sister Dana and her ability to get rid of scraps and only keep the most precious in that amazing little case! I don't know how she does it. And I loved Mermaid Sew's story about her sneaky storage, her husband seems awesome.
I am pretty excited about this quilt a long... as you will see very shortly, my scraps are one hot mess and I really should do something else with them. But I am sure that Jennifer is going to blow my socks off with this quilt along and my scrap basket is going to be empty by the end of it!
scrap basket you ask... yes, scrap basket.
this is my basket. it is a lovely vintage painted wire potato basket that my grampa gave me.
and it holds this huge mess of my scraps... there is no rhyme or reason to it. it is all just stuffed in.
like a stuffed pepper. mmm... stuffed peppers... reminds me of these...
sorry... off topic.
there are small pieces and large pieces and triangle pieces and square pieces...
basically, it is all here.
all of this madness does have a method to it.
you see, i reach down (as this basket sits at my feet as i sew) and randomly choose a scrap...
and magical things happen...
so... i think i will keep it crazy for now but it might be a good idea to at least try to come up with something more organized so i can be ready to sew along...
