Scrappy Stash Quilt-Along Blog Hop


Today is my stop on Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts Scrappy Stash Quilt-Along Blog Hop! This is going to be a great opportunity to dig into your scraps and make something really special. Jennifer will be posting a tutorial beginning October 9th so you can make a quilt from Monochromatic Improv Log Cabins. Love it!

For the blog hop, Jennifer asked us to share our scraps and how we store them. I have a lot of scraps. It might not look like it, but they are so compressed in these baskets they are probably forming diamonds at the bottom.

I’m not sure if I mentioned it ever, but I am really spoiled to live about 10 minutes away from the Crate and Barrel outlet store. These green wire mesh baskets came from there. I love the bright colors and the mesh is perfectly spaced so I don’t lose small pieces of fabric. Because yeah, I keep everything for some reason.

I attempt to keep my scraps organized by warm/cool/solid colors. But my kids also love to play in my bins, so usually there is a bit of mixing up going on.

    Love your scraps. If I lived close to the Crate and Barrel outlet, it would be a very bad thing.

    Your scraps look pretty well sorted to me, mine are all lumped in together and I’m a bit afraid of going in there!
