This box weighed a Ton!!
Beautiful Clean fabrics waiting to go into a quilt!
I have a system to keep these and help me quilt them up. Odd shape pieces go into a "Bits Bib" large pieces go into my "To be Cut Bin" The string get sorted in color order and theses stay on a shelf until I am ready to quilt.
to give you an idea what a heart string quilt looks like, here is one I made a few years ago: This is one of my first ones. It isn't perfect but I'm not sure the guy at the Springfield rescue mission that received it cared much. It was pretty, made with Love and Warm!!
After 30 minutes of sorting I still wasn't through this jam packed box!!
After the box was emptied my Bins were full and so weren't my string bins!! I have a lot of fabric here and I look forward to getting these quilts done up when my friend Pam comes back from vacation!
