Spiderweb and Scrap Patrol
In general, I have settled on keeping fabric as whole as possible for as long as possible...keeping those larger hunks in Elfa racks. For example, to make a chicken, I need a 6 by 9 inch rectangle of light fabric and a 4.5 by 5.5 rectangle of wing fabric, plus neutral background strips. This leaves each larger fabric hunk looking partially devoured by locust, but it keeps the scraps down.
But now that I'm making a thimble quilt and have plans for a postage stamp rainbow quilt, I thought it was time to get this stuff sorted consistently.
Buddy and Molly prefer the piles of scraps on the floor method...ideal for sneak attacks and hiding toys and general mayhem.
