WIP Wednesday ~ Scraps & Design Walls ~

I’m so happy that Lee of Freshly Pieced has started up her WIP Wednesday’s again!  Last year I started to use Wednesday’s to share what I was working on, but posting it to share with others really helped me get through my checklists and become more efficient.  So today I have one big (at least to me) WIP that I completed last week.

My overflowing scrap bin:

IMG_0377This scrap bin has been accumulating fabric for what seems like years.  In the fall, I started going through it in hopes of trimming things down.  But while it’s fun to look through a bin of random fabric,  I got bored.  To motivate me to get this job done, I brought my bin with a little sewing station upstairs and while watching my FSU Seminoles play each Saturday I sorted, measured, cut, and tossed.

By the end of the season, I was down to this:

IMG_0556From my giant bin I was able to cut over 6 baggies full of usable scraps!  Woo-Hoo!  I am so glad I stuck with it and have been able to knock this out.  One big goal – CHECK.  All it took was some great football to keep me going.

IMG_0796Here is a shot I took this morning of my scrap stash.  These scraps are:

  • 1 baggie full of various sized triangles
  • 2 1/2″ squares
  • 2″ squares & strips
  • 1 1/2″ squares & strips
  • 1″ squares & strips

Now I have all these scraps in a bag on my shelf and a big chunk of space under my table open.  Success!


So what is going to be my next WIP?  This *kinda-sorta* design wall I just made.  I have 3 WIP on there so next week I will tackle one and get it done!  Have a great Wednesday.
