Behind the big old net o' scraps you can see the shelving with the rest of the scrap sitting scowling at me waiting to be used.
The "Rule of thumb" is anything smaller than a FQ goes in the net, which is right next to my cutting table (so no excuse not to use it) and larger than a FQ but less than a 1/4 yard is stacked on the shelves....I'll let you know how long I keep it up for lol
With this scrap management in mind (and the small issue of loosing the fabric I had planned to use for my month in the house move) I'm sending out my scraps to my sewn together bee mates for my month with the hopes that when they come back to me they'll be quilt blocks rather than a storage pain :D
