More than a year ago I won a box of scraps. They seemed to be most of a line of fabric and enough to make a big bed quilt so I just pushed them under a table and forgot them.
Recently I opened the full box of scraps, and washed them resulting in a need to sort them into pattern and color to find out what I have to work with...
so I sorted the colors and styles into piles all over the family room...
And got out the ironing board

I began pressing the strips and sorting them. I realized there are about 22 different colors and patterns!!
Most of a fabric line probably! They are in differnt length strips by the whole width of fabric. Some are 6 inches down to about 1 and a half inches, different yardage according to color as well.
"Here, let me organize them!"

I wonder how they will look cut up, with the pattern they could look interesting.
Anyway it fills a tall container with approx 22 yards in varying strip size.
I like variety. These are all from the same fabric line and all go together. What shall I make? Whee!
Sometimes too much choice makes it harder....
Working around a 9 week old active standard poodle puppy who also likes fabric and has opinions and wants to "do it myself!" gives me a degree of difficulty rating of 10 !
