Happy Tuesday…and welcome to what is really the Scraps Monday post! It was cloudy and rainy yesterday (so appreciative of the moisture), but it didn’t make for good photos!
I’m taking the last week of the month to only work on scrap projects, nothing new until next week. But since my “Go Four It” quilt along quilt is a scraps project, I’m working on it. I still have background squares to cut, but I took a break and put a couple blocks together…240 more to go!
And I have a fun tip to share today too…
I can’t claim credit for this…but I asked YellowFarmHouse if I could share (I saw it on her Instagram first) and could hardly wait to get to Target to pick up an extra drawer divider. You can see the bin my strips were previously in on the left and compare it to how wonderful it is to have them separated by color on the right. I’m thinking of heading to our local dollar store today to see if I can find a couple more dividers. I can organize Christmas strips this way and on and on…the possibilities!
I really think this is going to be wonderful for scrappy strip quilts…I can separate the strips by color and have different bins for different sizes of strips. I just love it when a little idea motivates me to use those scraps.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
