Green and My Favorite Sewing Essentials!
As promised yesterday, I have put up my 16-patches on the wall with two X-blocks, which is my GREEN for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I had hoped to have more done, however it was time to do my taxes! Have I mentioned that I am an accountant -- sssshhhh, don't tell anyone that I waited until the last minute to get a REFUND!
The Zip Bags are the perfect thing to keep the various size strips and squares -- the bag is marked and thrown in a box with other scraps. When I am looking for something, I am a messy digger -- the bags keep the fabric from tangling.
The 2-gallon bags are perfect for storing quilt kits. The big bag above is holding a Short Stacks Quilt, with paper towels separating the blocks needing to be sewn together.
Do you see the clear glass vase? It is so perfect for throwing those little scraps that I am not ready to throw in the garbage -- even though they are VERY TINY! This gives me one more chance to dig through them before tossing. The colorful display is also decorative.
And last, the little square and rectangle trays -- they hold little projects I am working on that I don't want to lose in all of the chaos.
