And when you decide what's not too small, how do you organize what you're keeping? Shoe boxes? Plastic bags? 55 gallon garbage sacks? I have a 30 gallon tub in the fabric cave that's overflowing with scraps and other miscellany. Not exactly user-friendly, and now I question whether I will ever do anything with them, mostly because I don't know what's in the tub! Please, don't let the little ones see this:
One bin is sitting on my sewing table; it's the one I took with me to the quilting retreat. There were 5 projects in it: the Barn Chicks quilt from my last post and its remnants, my practice blocks for the Trick or Treat quilt (I had planned to make a pillow with them), another Buggy Barn project--I used their Crazy Cats quilt pattern to make 3 flannel cat blocks to make into a pillow (hmmm....I'm beginning to see a pattern here), a Civil War reproduction quilt project, and the leftover blocks from our retreat quilts and leftover log cabin strips to make shams for the quilts:
There are 27 (yikes!) more bins.
Let's see what happens.
