Nightmare or Delight ?

I've always saved useful scraps

And now 2 boxes of something  maybe useful for sometime

Inspired by Bonnie Hunter Leader Enders.

There is a happy caotic mess in the sewing room.  I have always made use of my scraps and explored variations on chain piecing. Recently I came across Bonnie Hunter's blog.

Her scrap saver system ( under techniques on blog).  Just the thing to wrangle this messy treasure.. while cutting 2" strips for a swap 2 1/2" squares are mounting up  as well.  Getting organised for the Grand  Illusion Mystery Quilt and summer stitching.

I love making things with scraps. It's like free fabric!

Maybe I need to read Bonnies tips, I can hardly get the lid back on my scrap bin. I like her idea of 2.5 squares and strips. Have fun playing with your scraps.

Great that you're also joining in the mysterie!
I also really love the way Bonnie Hunter works; her scrap-user-system is such a great way to stash scraps.
Have fun! Love, Ria.

I have so much of them and now just need time to make something with them. I like Bonnie's techniques and got a few of her books too. Hugs Nat
