Life is giving me some scraps, so I am sorting & flinging scraps !
Nothing is like a good fling !
What got flung was small scraps, smaller than 1,5" x 6", odd shapes, white on whites not longer so white, more like yellowish, and coarse / stiff fabrics.
I also flung some poly/cotton blends from my aunt's collection,
and organized the rest of her collection (now mine) to my liking, sorted on colours :-)
Even DH was impressed.
I have been quilting for 20 years and have had access to good American quilting fabrics for about 12 - 14 years.
I have saved every snip and cut, and I have used a lot of it for making miniature blocks over the years, but now it was time to let go of a lot of of it.
Rest assured, I have a lot more scraps to use - the scraps of good quality fabrics, in usable sizes and with pleasant prints. Headless cats do not make good blocks, even on the best of days ......
This is a view of some of the saved scraps, after I flung 4 grocery bags full - about 4/5 of the amount I sorted today was flung.
The rest is sorted by colour and put in zip lock bags.
I have a lot of other zip lock bags from before, so if I need a sort and fling again I will not be out of work ;-)
I am looking forward to do some string quilts in the future with my newly sorted scraps !
I messed up the sidebar of my blog earlier this evening by putting in a gif that did not fit. It made the sidebar to wide, so it was pushed to the bottom instead of staying on the side.
Whatever I did I was not able to find the gif and remove it,
which proves I am not very good with coding. DD1 could not help me either.
DD1's boyfriend, who is a computer wiz, fixed it for me from his computer, over the telephone. Again he has proven himself a keeper, in his own friendly way. He is not making fun of me - he is sweet (and smart as well) :-)
