Saving Scraps posted: 5/23/2004

This is something I've been doing for years and it really pays off: When I am finished piecing a quilt top, I invariably have extra blocks, fabric scraps and yardage. I put it all into a box or zip top bag. Later, when I'm looking for coordinating scraps to make a small project, boutique item, trial quilt block, etc, I can grab one of these bags and know that all the fabrics successfully go together. What a time saver!

Working with these fabrics again brings back fond memories of the original project. And sometimes the "scrap" project turns out better than the original project!
