I read Bonnie’s post “Scrap User’s System” a few years ago.
It came back to mind this week when I wanted something to do while watching ‘Game of Thrones’.
I liked her system and decided to tweak it to future projects I have in mind.
For one I decided i wanted a few different shapes for appliques on purses or whatever.
I haven’t made any quilts yet, but hope to at some point so I will save squares, rectangles, and strips for future use as well.
I printed up some template to use while cutting scraps: owls, leaves, flowers, a mini stocking, peace signs, and drew some various sized squares and rectangles.
The 6×6 squares I like using to make patchwork scarves. The 4×4 I had cut to make a twirly skirt but never started that project yet, maybe some other time.
I plan to store the pieces in ziplock bags soon.
