Have you ever noticed that scraps seem to breed! When you use some, it seems harder to put the unused back into their container even though there are fewer of them?
How do you handle these unruly items? What works for you?
Well, it took me awhile, but I cut my scraps into squares 2.5 inches and larger. Then I sorted them by color and stored them in baggies. The strips that are between 1.0 and 2.5 inches are also sorted by color so I can make strips. I have found this method to be easy to use for scrappy quilts. For larger scraps, I store them folded up in the main fabric. The lack of air, since they are trapped in plastic bags, seems to have handled the "breeding." LOL
