The pieces you see here will soon turn into fun and exciting zipper pouches
I'm really excited to see how the blue and white ones turn out. I love those fabrics so much!
Another development that is actually quite surprising is that I've started an official scrap pile! You might wonder how I could go so long as a quilter without having a scrap pile so I will explain. I'm a little bit of an anti-clutter freak. So as I've made my quilts in the past, unless it was a large enough piece to fold and put away, I didn't keep the little random, odd-sized pieces. The funny thing about this is that I love scrappy quilts and have really been wanting to make one. That's hard to do without scraps. hehe. This week as I was making my placemats for the swap and the zipper pouches, I ended up with the cutest little scrap pile.And all of a sudden I was inspired.
Scrap piles can be beautiful!! :)
Now, I just have to find something to keep my scraps in. I would like it to be attractive yet functional. What do you use for your scrap management? Do you sort according to color or keep them all in one place? I would love some ideas on where to start.
One last thing that I want to share is that I won a giveaway this morning! Amy from A Quilting Sheep had a giveaway and I won some yardage and fat quarters! What a fun way to start my Friday. Maybe that's why I was singing that song. ;) Thanks Amy!
