Today we are talking about our fabric scraps, sorting, storing, and using our scraps. Join April and I as we try to make sense of our scrap stashes!

Shout Color Catcher are a great save for washing quilts with lots of color, or less quality dyes.

Plastic storage boxes might be a good option for me to get started sorting my scraps.

Scrap Swaps take a little time to coordinate, but given a theme could be a great way to acquire more variety in your scraps.

There’s lots more great info in the podcast – I hope you will listen and find the gems, like this one :

    Hi ladies, Many samples of scrap quilts can be found at Quiltville.com. This is Bonnie Hunter’s web sight. I see lots on her Facebook page. Another thought about using scraps is to sort by color intensity. Light dark, pure colors and dull ones. When the values are planned the various color ways can work. Have a great week. Jill

    Thanks so much for the podcast! I always enjoy it. I’ve been trying to use Bonnie Hunter’s scrap system whenever I have leftovers. It can get pretty labor intensive doing all that cutting, but it’s also been fun to pull already cut strips and squares for a project. The problem is you really need to have a lot of scraps for the variety needed to make a scrappy project look good…I think.
