An advantage to retirement, I can participate in a Quilt-along in addition to sewing my own designs .... sometimes more than one. I always have a leader/ender scrap quilt going, however some of the scraps are starting to overflow. I keep them in several 20-quart plastic bins by color and/or type.
About half of the batik scraps are now pressed to get started. I pulled a piece of greenish/ gray yardage for the spools and very quickly, the first 8 blocks are done.
