Sunday Stash May 30, 2021

No fabric in or out this week.

I seem to have a scrap problem in the sewing room. I swear they multiply when I’m not looking. It may be getting out of hand.

Every container on these shelves is full of scraps.

I’m debating what I want to do with them. A couple of different patterns come to mind, plus I need strips for a Guild sew in where we are playing with Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s techniques.

The scariest bin is the green bin. I made three quilts out of that bin and it’s still overflowing.

Fabric In: 2 yards

Fabric Out: 2.25 yards

Net Fabric Out: .25 yards

How did you do this week?

    Scraps definitely multiply when we aren’t watching! I love using mine, but sometimes get overwhelmed by the vast quantity of them.
    If you need inspiration for scrap quilts, I recommend Cathy’s blog Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting. She makes amazing scrappy quilts, frequently using very simple patterns but getting incredible results. https://saneandcrazy.blogspot.com/?m=0

    Wow! I can usually make a pretty good dent in mine with just one project. But lately I’ve been messing up a lot and have unintentionally filled the scrap boxes.

    The scraps multiply and I’m always amazed at how many quilts come out of a box. A drawer I think would make two quilts will end up making 10 and scraps leftover. I don’t know how it happens, but it doesn’t.
    Here is my report. https://melsquiltingblog.blogspot.com/2021/05/stash-report-22.html
    I’m still recovering, so not much is going on.

  6. I’ve been cutting a box of gifted scraps in to my scrap saver system. I live in a 650 sq ft apartment with my DH so space is at a premium. It had to be dealt with right away. So much fun.

    I hear you! I’m always surprised how far my scraps go! I was wondering how to add your cool Sunday Stash image to my own blog?
