If you want to be a scrap quilter, you really need some kind of organizational system to make good use of your bits and pieces. Most of the time my "system" looks like this photo of scraps in bags!
But on occasion I enjoy organizing scraps into my favourite collectable tins and boxes. I especially like tins that have a little window so you can see what is inside. This tin holds my waffle blocks.
And I have this gorgeous tea box which has such a pretty embossed design on the lid that you can only see when you have it tilted at the exact right magical angle.
This Harney and Sons tea box is the perfect size to hold my collection of 1.5" squares and organized sets of blocks. I can open the box and start sewing up these leader-ender blocks whenever I have time.
And these are the blue Easy Breezy blocks sewn this month so far - so pretty! Blue is definitely a colour that needs more representation in this quilt, so there will be several more made over the month.
What are you sewing on this lovely April day?

your blues are lovely - If I put pieces or parts in - I forget them.ReplyDelete
Very clever way to use boxes for your projects and scraps.ReplyDelete
I can relate to the first picture, haha! ;^)ReplyDelete
What a wonderful variety of BLUE scraps for your Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks, Kathy!!ReplyDelete
Sadly, most of my small pieces are in plastic bags, not at all appealing, unlike your pretty tins and boxes.ReplyDelete
You are very organized with those small pieces! I have trouble organizing even my big pieces...you're amazing.ReplyDelete
Beautiful blues, Kathy.ReplyDelete
I also worked on my Easy Breezy for the RSC this week. Love the idea of the Tea box for tiny squares.
I've been known to buy a cookie tin, mainly for the tin (ok I eat the cookies for sure too;). I really like how you've organized your little squares in that beautiful tea box.ReplyDelete
Oh, I love your storage boxes! It feels good to be organized.ReplyDelete
Love your storage boxes! I love to re-cycle colorful boxes and tins to store my quilting projects!ReplyDelete
