Just a reminder of where I started!
And today it happily looks like this!
6.5" and 3.5" squares
2.5" x 6.5" strips
On the left, 2.5" squares, most of which have been sewn up into 16 patches for Bits and Pieces II. On the right, 2.5" strips for scrappy bindings. I use scrappy bindings in all my scrap quilts.
My scrappy strings (less than 2.5" wide) have all been used up in my scrappy strings quilt.
It's such a relief to have this done. And now I feel like my scraps will actually get used instead of intimidating me with their mess. As to whether they will stay this tidy, who knows. I know I am motivated to deal with them after each project when they are small and manageable. But I also know that when I need to complete projects on a deadline things get messy.
