I am working on several quilt projects that I can’t share but I’m the type who works on several things at a time so usually have something to show. Anyone else like that?
I keep all of my scraps sorted into sizes that I seem to use all the time. Being an ambassador for Island Batik and also designing patterns with their beautiful batiks keep my scrap bins full. I took some of my 1½” batik squares and started making little 9 patch blocks to mix in with some square on point blocks. I’m not sure what I’m going to make yet…..maybe a pillow!
Here are the sizes that I usually cut my leftover batiks and then store in the storage bins under my cutting table in my quilt studio:
- 1½” x 1½” squares
- 2″ x 2″ squares
- 2½” x 2½” squares
- 5″ x 5″ squares
- 2½” strips
It makes it so nice to have the different sizes already cut and ready to use in a project. How do you store your scraps?
