Scrap wrangling

I recently pawed through all my scraps and relegated them to separate bins by color.

I figure this will help me make more crumb blocks.

I had to combine yellow with off white, orange with brown, and purple with pink, because there's a lot of overlap in those colors. Black and white are together as well.

Part of me wonders if this is too much organization. But the truth is, when I go into my scrap bin, it's usually for a particular color. So why not have scraps already sorted by color?

No, you were right to start with.......that's a good way to store them, and as long as the bins are together, you can still pull multiple colors ! Smart girl !

I sort my scraps by color for the exact same reason. All in little plastic bins so I have easy access to them. :)

This is right up my alley. First, I'm a container girl. Second, the fact that the colors are sorted makes for pretty presentation. Oh, and of course, there's the best reason--it's practical and makes for efficient sewing especially when you are stealing a quick minute.
