Unfortunately, this sewing room is so small and full of "stuff" that I moved my sewing machine, table and supplies to our den/family room several months ago. I positioned my sewing machine about three feet away my husband's computer so that we can talk and watch television while he is working and I am sewing.
I just want to add that as I am going through the scraps, I am remembering the quilts that I made. I am feeling very nostalgic but.... I must get rid of it! I must set those feelings aside! Approximately, two years decided to throw away the smaller bits of fabric as I finished the project. So the scraps that I am throwing away now are from quilts that have been done over two years ago.
A few years ago, I had some fabrics that were large pieces. I cut them down to strips because one of my quilt instructors once told us that she cuts her left over fabric into 1 1/2 inch, 2 inch and 2 1/2 inch widths just in case she might need to make a log cabin quilt or anything that requires strips. I did cut some of my left over fabric but I must say I did not use any of them, not even once!
The bin on the right is 7" deep x 15" length x 11" wide. The bin on the left is 7" deep x 21" length x 16" wide. You can't really see it but both bins are full up to 10" high (from the top of the table). I am ready to throw it all away!
By the way, I found four quilt tops that are close to being finished. I have a couple that need a border or two. I think that they are from the early 2000's. I will try to finish them but I am working the next two weeks at our local high school, Rio Americano. I will have very little time to sew but I will do my blocks for the Vintage Quilt Revival! I am really enjoying this "Block Along."
