Those of you who hang around here often will have seen my sophisticated storage system before, but if not, welcome.
My scraps used to just live in a big mess until the beginning of the summer, but now they reside in the complete luxury of colour-sorted plastic bags!
I have a few extra bags which hold specific things, like selvedges or precious scraps of Heather Ross, but anything bigger than a 5" charm tends to just live with the rest of my stash; scraps are scraps, I save anything from 3/4" upwards. If you can fold it, that still counts as yardage!
I love scraps though, and am a sucker for online stores selling scrap packs, all those little pieces, and the fun of working out what they are, what fun!
I use my scraps to try out new things like fiddly paper-piecing, right up to quilts.
The Happy Scrappy says it all for me...
Seeing as I have had scraps on the brain, I just had to make another of these blocks for Bee Blessed; there's still time if you want to contribute too...
Just in case you need a reminder of why Jennifer has us sorting those scraps, here are the important bits again...
