Scrap Organization

I took the last few days and decided that I would organize all my scrap fabric. I do not have a ton of scraps, but for me, they were getting in the way.  I did not know how much of what fabric I had,  so I decided that I would take the time to cut up all of the extra fabric.

I took my Omnigrid square rulers and made piles of fabric according to the size of the templates.  I took a scrap and cut the biggest square that I could manage according to the ruler size.

Once all of this was completed, I found that I now have quite a nice collection of different sized squares.

  • 9.5″ Squares
  • 6.5″ Squares
  • 5″ Squares
  • 4.5″ Squares
  • 2.5″ Squares
  • 3″ Strips of fabric
  • 2.5″ Strips of fabric
  • Bag of odd sized scraps

These scraps will come in handy the next time I need something small, or I can turn them into a beautiful scrappy looking quilt.

Now that it is all organized, I can begin my next project.
