More Scrap Vortex

No automatic alt text available.

I've steadily been working on Scrap Vortex. It takes quite awhile to look through my scraps and figure out what I can actually use. I have those portable plastic drawers that have most of my fabric. I try to keep them assorted by color. I said "try", because there are times when I'm working on something I just mess up my whole system! I also have a scrap bag with smaller pieces.

If a small scrap doesn't get used, I put it into the scrap bag. My scrap bag doesn't look much smaller but my drawers look very neat and tidy!

Here's my pile of pieced scraps I've made so far for Scrap Vortex. I'm going to have one more session of sewing scraps together and then I will be onto Step 2! Step 1 has taken me so long but I think it's a great way of combing through my fabric collection. 

One last observation, I could probably make a few more of these quilts! These scraps never seem to ever go away! Maybe there will be more Scrap Vortex quilts in my future!!

  1. WOW--you are really moving along on this scrap vortex Rosemary--I think scrappy sewing like this can be very relaxing--I still try, though, to do a little matchey-matchey--can't help myself--shhhh don't tell...lol

    It's looking very good...everyone's reflects so much of their "type" of fabric which is why they tirn out so "individual" I think hugs, Julierose

    1. I think it looks sort of messy. I'm hoping to clean it up in the next step. My fabrics look dark to me. I'm looking forward to see how this works out. Thanks for the nice comment!

  2. That's a lot of scraps used! Must have taken some time just to lay them all out. I imagine the cats would have had a field day romping through there.
    I think you have a good assortment of color...it doesn't look "Dark" to me.

    1. Thanks, Em! It did take a long time to lay out. The cats never saw it or I'm sure there would have been quite the mess! I'm looking forward to putting these scraps together!
