Scrappy Sunday – scrap reduction?

An almost momentous event this week at the Overseas Office – various bags of scraps were emptied onto the worktable with the aim of sorting and reducing the heaps and making them more manageable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Resisting the urge to press everything   -!! – Barbara spent a happy hour or so straightening and sorting ALL this jumble into categories.

Category 1 – Far too small to be of any use to anyone.

Category 1a – Small weird shapes, 1inch or more

Category 2 – Very narrow strips, any length

Category 3 – Less narrow strips, any length

Category 4 – Slightly wider strips, any length

Category 5 – Wider strips and chunks

Category 1 is covered by scissors, Category 1a is to the right, Categories 2 – 5 middle and above.

Categories 1 and 1a have been combined and are off to a good home with another quilter who collects improbably tiny scraps.  The rest have fitted neatly into one medium ziplock bag –

Overall result of this sorting and organising is that it makes room for more fabric! It may be time for a little online retail therapy…..
