Oh, Scrap! 😜 Don’t miss this scrapalicious blog hop (+ a OOAK giveaway!)

We’re thrilled to be a stop on Lissa Alexander’s blog hop for her new book today! Oh, scrap—after all the buzz, all the anticipation, and all the teases and sneak peeks, Oh, Scrap! is finally here!

Oh, Scrap!

Lissa Alexander is a wife and mother of five, a quilter since 1980, the curator of the “Moda All-Stars” series, and the director of marketing at Moda Fabrics. Whew!

Oh, and did we mention she’s also a scrap-quilting master? Oh, yes, that too!

Quilts from Oh, Scrap!
Quilts from Oh, Scrap!

If you want to think like a scrap quilter, look to Lissa. She’s spent three decades honing her scrap-quilting skills, and in her first solo book, she offers page after page of tips for making dazzling scrap quilts bursting with colors, prints, and textures.

As you make 12 exquisite quilts with Lissa, you’ll learn her secrets for deciding which fabric combinations work—and (sometimes more importantly!) understanding why others don’t. She’ll explain how to use your unique stash to make scrap quilts that sparkle. Take a look at this handy visual “swatch card” for Lissa’s quilt, Sherbet Stars:

The swatch card (right) is invaluable when it comes to choosing fabrics like Lissa does—it features the actual colors and prints that she used in her quilt.

Oh, Scrap! also includes a preface by renowned quilt historian Barbara Brackman, who muses on the history of scrap quilts. Fascinating!

And then there are the QUILTS!

So many fabrics, so many colors, so many prints . . . so many possibilities!

We’ve also got a SPECTACULAR giveaway today, like nothing we’ve ever done before. The prize? It’s like Julia Child sending you the finest ingredients to make her latest recipe … like van Gogh gifting you his favorite paints and a canvas (graced with a few paint strokes to start) … it’s like Beethoven shipping his piano to you, along with sheets of music on which the beginnings of a sonata are written. Find out more at the end of this post!

But first, here’s Lissa to introduce you to her new book and give you some tips for making your own scrappy quilts.


Lissa AlexanderI hope many of you know me, but for those who don’t, let me give you a short history of what brings me here today. I began quilting in 1980 the old-fashioned way—tracing patterns, adding seam allowances, cutting templates, piecing by machine, and using the quilt-as-you-go method.

I was thrilled when my sister-in-law gave me a rotary cutter and the book It’s Okay If You Sit on My Quilt by Mary Ellen Hopkins. In the book was a little note from my sister-in-law, saying there was one other item I needed, but the shop was out of it. I had no idea what was missing (and this was before Google existed) so I just waited. After a little research, I discovered the rotary mat was the missing item. Once I got that all straightened out, I was on my way.

A few years later I got a part-time job at Jenny Lynn’s quilt shop in Dallas, Texas, where I also taught. Later I was hired by Melba Hamrick to start a quilt shop in her existing shop, The Old Craft Store, in Carrolton, Texas. Nine years later, Mark Dunn and Cheryl Freydberg from United Notions/Moda Fabrics hired me. I just celebrated my 20th anniversary with Moda. It seems like yesterday when I came on board. I’ve been able to work for what I consider the best fabric company in the industry. My experience running a shop ties in with Mark Dunn’s vision of supporting independent quilt shops.

Then something happened that turned my world upside down. Two years ago, I spent the night at my son’s house to help with my new granddaughter. The following morning, my husband came by just in time to witness me having a seizure. The rest is a whirlwind, but I was hospitalized, and on March 16, 2016, I had brain surgery. After I recovered, I decided I was ready to push myself and take on the challenge of publishing a book about what I love most about quilting—color.

So, why is the book titled Oh, Scrap!? When I started writing the book I was thinking, oh, crap, I’m lucky to be alive. I’m lucky to have a wonderful family and many quilty friends. That’s why I decided to take Martingale’s Chief Visionary Officer, Jennifer Keltner, up on her invitation to write a book. But what kind of title would Oh, Crap! be? So the working title became Oh, Scrap!, and it just stuck.

I should’ve known I was suffering from QuiltPox or ScrapPox when I started saving the tiniest pieces of scraps in a shoe box. Come on, you’ve done that, right? I thought I’d need them someday because I was going to paper piece mini-quilts. When the box was full, I came to my senses and threw the scraps in the yard for the birds to build nests with. That season my neighborhood had very colorful nests.

My favorite thing about quilting is color, and my second favorite thing is mixing and matching fabric lines from different designers to achieve a scrappy look. My definition of scrappy doesn’t mean everything including the kitchen sink—it means color-coordinated quilts with lots of different fabrics. A variety of fabrics ensures different values, a nice range of scale, and a flow throughout. But you don’t need a degree in color theory to make scrap quilts.

Surrounded quilt

My scraps are mainly bits and pieces left over from Moda precuts. Precuts build color confidence, because if you use all of the fabrics in a bundle together, you’ll have a beautiful quilt. Having scraps ready and accessible to cut is the biggest trick. The majority of my pieces are folded and stored in plastic containers that measure 5″ x 14″ x 5″ tall, the same container size you’d use to store canned soft drinks in the fridge. I pull containers out by color and cut away. Fat quarters or smaller pieces fit nicely. Organization is always a big topic for quilters—how do you store your fabrics?

Stair Steps quilt

The patterns in Oh, Scrap! are traditional and made in a wide range of fabrics. I hope that, using my tips throughout the book, you’ll expand your vision about what fabrics can go together in a quilt. If you’ve been following the Oh, Scrap! blog hop, you’ll see that some of my friends have made quilts from the book in their favorite colors. We’re all constantly learning and looking at things from different perspectives. I hope Oh, Scrap! finds a place in your quilt library and helps you use up the scraps you’ve saved.

  • My scraps are not in order by size, but they are definitely sorted by color. This book looks like a breath of spring air—such beautiful, refreshing color!

    —Carole S. on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are stored in clear shoe boxes by size and shape, strips and squares. No color order, cutting them to size and putting them away is a huge accomplishment for me ☺. Thank you for a great giveaway and the book preview.

    —Kris Perez on March 26, 2018
  • I store large scraps in boxes by color the smaller ones, what a colorful mess!

    —Sally Christiansen on March 26, 2018
  • Love every quilt in this book!

    —Terry on March 26, 2018
  • The quilts in this book look awesome! I store my scraps, by color, in wire shelving bins.

    —Lin McQuiston on March 26, 2018
  • I am semi organized as my storage is limited! Congratulations Lisa, on your new book!!!

    —Karen Sikes on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins. Not by color but by size. I cut scraps into squares and strips. Perhaps I should switch to storing by color…..

    michele breault on March 26, 2018
  • I store by size, but after reading this post I think I should store by color

    michele breault on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in assorted containers, although I have started cutting them into sizes I use regularly a la Bonnie Hunter. I have a three-drawer cart under my cutting table where I just cram stuff in!

    —Sue on March 26, 2018
  • Organized bins…it’s a work in progress. What an awesome giveaway. Thank you.

    —Angela Schultz on March 26, 2018
  • I organize basically the same way in containers about the size of shoe boxes by color on shelves, I make scrap quilts and have been quilting for about 30 years like Lissa – I would love to be one of your winners

    Karen on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps by color in plastic gallon-sized bags, nothing smaller than two-inch cuts. Lissa’s book looks wonderful!

    —Marianne on March 26, 2018
  • I just have several totes that I dig through.

    —Judith J on March 26, 2018
  • Wish I could say my scraps are organized, but they are not. They are for the most part in plastic bins, but I just dig through to find what I want. The quilts in the book are so beautiful.

    —Jackie Stevens on March 26, 2018
  • One way or another, I am looking forward to having this resource book on my shelf! My scraps are organized by colour in the drawers of a cabinet.

    —Christine on March 26, 2018
  • As a new quilter, I am still picking up tips and tricks. I am not organized at all but headed to the $ store for some plastic containers

    Pat Urbaeck on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are stored by the project that generated them. Not the most efficient method, but it works for me.

    —Ann Borger on March 26, 2018
  • I store smaller pieces & fat quarters in clear shoe boxes, and yardage and larger pieces in 2 tubs for lights & darks. This has been a wonderful hop – many congrats to Lissa!

    —Cathy on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are organized by color in bins. I used to organize by size but I found myself always looking for particular colors, so the way I organize them now is more convenient.

    —Allison Evrard on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in containers in a closet.

    —Kristen on March 26, 2018
  • Stored by color for the most part. Civil War in one bin, batiks in another, wool in another.

    —Janie Steele on March 26, 2018
  • I now store all my fabric and scraps in what used to by my daughter’s bedroom in her old basket wardrobe system, so I have lots of drawers to sort into colours, fat quarters, jelly rolls, scraps, etc. My daughter got married last year, and before she left home, she got me a little wooden sign to put on the bedroom door which said "Craft Room" giving me her blessing to use her room, even though she knew I’d miss her! I can’t get your book in the UK until 28th May!! I can’t wait to start using some of my scraps to make a quilt…may be I should make it for my daughter :’)

    —Pippa on March 26, 2018
  • My fabric is totally disorganized!

    —Sharon Morton on March 26, 2018
  • I’m pretty organized with my scraps keeping fabrics by size/color in containers and fabric totes. I love the Stair Step quilt. It would be awesome to get it started with scraps from Lissa!

    —JennyM on March 26, 2018
  • I organize my scraps by color as well as size of scrap. I cut ahead strips and squares in assorted sizes and store in plastic boxes. Then I am ready for a project with out a lot of cutting.

    —Barbara Adams on March 26, 2018
  • Oh my! I use an old clear zippered bag that a queen-sized comforter came in. Holds a lot, although it’s not organized.

    —Diane on March 26, 2018
  • WOW! This book looks fabulous!
    I have a LOT of scraps – some are in plastic shoebox-style bins organized by colour, and some offcuts of half square triangles, etc. or extra small finished blocks are stored in (new) pizza boxes on a closet shelf. I always have to remind myself to check the scraps first before cutting into a new piece of fabric – the scraps tend to multiply quickly…

    —Laurie Palozzi on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are fairly organized in bins and drawers. I will admit to having a large box of pieces that still need to be cut up into usable size strips and squares.

    —DebrafromMD on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in tubs, on shelves, in closets and anywhere I find a spot. I think I’m ready for a string quilt!

    —Judy Anderson on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in bins, on shelves, in drawers, and in fabric bags. So no not very organized. I don’t usually buy books but think I will if I don’t win one.

    —Elizabeth Davis on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in plastic shoeboxes in no order.

    —Peggy Shepard on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are a little bit organized in bins and containers. Need to learn how to really organize by color so I will be able to use them in my quilts. The Oh Scrap quilts are absolutely amazing and looking forward to using this book to help me learn more about scraps and what sizes to keep. Thanks for the giveaway. Thanks to Lissa for a great book – absolutely love your quilts.

    —Becky on March 26, 2018
  • I organize my scraps in plastic 12×12 cases by color, in clear plastic project bags by fabric line, and fat quarters by themselves in long bins.

    —Donna Magee on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins, and boxes and shelves and piles!

    —Martha Henrichs on March 26, 2018
  • yup, definitely a "bin" girl….really shoeboxes…so easy to find, get chosen to use more often, easy to see what is on hand and what size needs to be used…has really upped my game with regard to using them up! fantastic selection of quilts…that stair steps is definitely on my list as i’ve a stash of 4-patches ready to go…

    grace thorne on March 26, 2018
  • Right now I store them together in plastic bins, but I have a feeling I may need to spend some time organizing by color. I’m so excited about this book after following the blog hop. I’m starting with Sherbet Stars!

    —Linda Cates on March 26, 2018
  • I have a dresser drawer for my scraps!

    —Becky Hartley on March 26, 2018
  • I have tired organizing. Really I have, but I seem to be just incapable of organizing! I need help! If I ever won a prixe, I would wish it to be someone to come organize me!

    —Judi Reiss on March 26, 2018
  • I have bins, shelves, closets, clear bags, etc. I am out of control!

    —Erin Earl on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such. And jars – because I love the colors and they’re pretty on my bookshelves.

    Deb Graczyk on March 26, 2018
  • I love scrappy quilts.

    —Pam on March 26, 2018
  • I store my yard or bigger pieces on shelves and my smaller pieces in plastic containers.

    —Lee Goodman on March 26, 2018
  • Sadly, I throw my excess scraps in a tote. I only just started saving my scraps this past year so it’s a small collection so far.

    —Liz K on March 26, 2018
  • Scrap quilts are so full of our favorite fabrics left overs. I just started tossing small scraps into a large clear plastic duvet bag. It is easy to see, but not sure that it is a good idea. All my other fabric is on shelves in a closet or in bins.
    Thanks for such a wonderful book.

    —Donna Cutting on March 26, 2018
  • I use the plastic shoeboxes. There is at least one for each color and when that one gets full, I just go and buy another one. Every so often I will go through each box, fill up a bag with what I don’t wish to use anymore and swap them with another one of my quilting friends. This gets rid of what I don’t want to use anymore and infuses my scrap boxes with new choices.

    —Lewcrese S on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in bins sorted by color and kept on shelves in my sewing room closet. I love the ideas in this book.

    —Cindy Fraher on March 26, 2018
  • Oh my goodness! My scraps are not organized at all. But I can definitely see a reason to organize them to make one of the quilts in this new book!

    —Deb on March 26, 2018
  • In plastic containers

    —Sheila Hewitt on March 26, 2018
  • I thought I was organized…until I took a good look around my quilt room and decided I should have an organizing day. My scraps from recent quilts have overtaken the organized chaos I did have going on! I just love the Firecracker pattern and think I might have to add it to my list!

    —DanyseF on March 26, 2018
  • I’m in the Not so much category! One day I will get organized! I have started cutting different sizes and storing them: 2.5″ squares, 1.5″, 3″ and 5″ so that I can pull quickly from them.

    —Shari K. on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are all in a small basket in my closet! I don’t have very many yet! Probably not enough to make a quilt yet!

    —Judy on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in see through bins right next to my cutting table. I am way over due to make a scrap quilt before I have to go buy another bin.

    —Joanne O'Neal on March 26, 2018
  • I do have some organized bins, sorted by size, color, but the scraps do take over and I have a bin with stuff from my cutting table and a BIG tote full of scraps that need organizing, trimming, sorting. Somim halfway neat, half way slob.
    Love to use up more scraps. Fingers crossed I win.

    —Suzanne on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much—I just go digging! I have a few boxes and bins I throw smaller pieces in, and I go diving to look for what I need.

    —angie little on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins but things still aren’t quite as organized as I’d like. I have one bigger bin for long skinny strips, some others for specific sizes above my cutting table, and then others for fabrics I bought to go together, and other bins of "scraps" and I can’t quite categorize.

    Thanks for a fun giveaway!

    —Amber on March 26, 2018
  • I organize my scraps exactly like Lissa – in plastic boxes, by color. But sadly, collecting the scraps is easy. Using them, not so much.

    —Colleen on March 26, 2018
  • Semi-organized in bins and boxes and shelves.

    CJ Hines on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps have graduated from a shoe box to a pizza box!! Squares; strips; triangles; and so many other shapes. I just dump them out and the color that comes out on top is the one I use.

    —marie on March 26, 2018
  • I need to organize my scraps, they are here there and everywhere in my sewing room.

    —Shirley Brys on March 26, 2018
  • Well, I started out trying to be organized with scraps sorted by color family in shoe boxes. I quickly outgrew that, and now i have both the color families and two large plastic totes filled with everything!

    —Robin M on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are stored in plastic bins by color and sizes. The closet is full and the scraps are overflowing. I need to get busy and make more scrap quilts. I love all the quilts in the book.

    —Flo Burton on March 26, 2018
  • I cannot wait to get started with this gorgeous book! I have LOTS OF SCRAPS which I try, valiantly, to organize by color in plastic drawers, but, alas, sometimes they just get out of control. This book has given me inspiration to use all of those scraps to make something gorgeous! Would love to win this delicious prize!

    —Celene on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fat quarters and larger in bins by color, my very small scraps in zippy bags by color and my in between scraps are in a big bin, not by color but they need to be!!! I’ve been trying to use my scraps so they are decreasing a bit but then I start a new quilt and add to them again. It is a never ending situation!!!

    —Susan Smith on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such. Not quite as organized as I would like to be, but I’m getting there!

    —Linda B on March 26, 2018
  • When I first started as a quilter, I just put scraps into bins by color. Now I try to put the scraps into bins by size, such as 2.5 inch strips, squares, etc. Either way, I seem to collect more and more.

    —Julie S on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are mostly organized by color, some by pattern, and are stored in plastic shoe bins on a variety of shelves. I have enough to make MANY quilts. I would love to win one of these prizes!

    Kathleen on March 26, 2018
  • I store all my scraps in totes organized by color. Much easier to find what I am looking for this way.

    —Betty Larum on March 26, 2018
  • I can’t work without organization! I have some small scraps stored in tiered bins and built in drawers and larger pieces by fabric genre and gradation within each color stored in sectioned open shelving in a large walk-in closet I was fortunate to design and have built for me. I love the stimulation it gives me for quilt projects. Need to use up those scraps!! New book has terrific quilts 🙃

    —Mary on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in many bags, boxes, and bins waiting for the next exciting project. Totally love your new book. Looks like lots of happy quilting ideas.

    —Pat Petersen on March 26, 2018
  • I have the clear shoe box size containers for my scraps. They are sorted by color, but some colors are overflowing into bigger containers. I need to use them up!

    —Virginia Over on March 26, 2018
  • I have so much trouble “letting go” of the scraps! I sort and store in plastic show boxes I picked up back in the 80s. Sometimes if a box is getting full, I’ll take everything out and try to get realistic about what I’m keeping…sure as shootin’ if I ever do throw a scrap out, THATs the one I really need later!

    —Julie Saemisch on March 26, 2018
  • I am "sorta, kinda," and/or "not so much" organized when it comes to scraps. I need to work on that someday. In the meantime I love to see
    Lissa’s posts on her blog. Scrap quilts fascinate me and I really would like to pursue making some soon – I have lots of scraps to work with.

    —Judy Casteel on March 26, 2018
  • I’m a very organized person (just ask my friends) but not in the scrap department. Stored in a bin and I have to go digging! Love the guilts in this book … inspiring! Thank you!

    —Esther on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such. I also fold them over file folders and put them in filing cabinets. I love fabric and have way too much!!

    —Nancy on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are EVERYWHERE!! I’m not very organized at all! But if I win, I can use up lots of my scraps!

    —Teresa Woodall on March 26, 2018
  • Sort of organized in a small chest of drawers — but then there is the overflow that doesn’t fit. Those pieces are in zippered bags. I need to use them up!

    —Carol Vickers on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps by color in gallon ziplock bags which are then stored in large plastic containers which I have four of. This way it is easy to pull out the color I am looking for. I would love to have a copy of this book as I love making scrap quilts!

    —Judi Rizzo on March 26, 2018
  • Well…a couple years ago I organized all the scraps I had at the time into strips, squares, triangles, and "others" and for awhile they were pretty organized until scraps from new projects sort of overwhelmed the containers and now my scraps have moved into the "not so much" organized category.

    —Carolyn Sefkow on March 26, 2018
  • In a glass bucket before sorting and in tubs when done!

    —stephanie on March 26, 2018
  • I try to be organized but it doesn’t always work out. I do make myself clean up after every project. 😃
    Book looks amazing.

    —Candy Donohue on March 26, 2018
  • I’m growing so many scraps, I’m moving into a beautiful room five times the size as I have now. My scraps continue to bloom and I sometimes love to go down the memory lane of all the special thing that have been given away. I love beautiful things. With this new room I’ll have more room to be organized for more blooms. Thanks.

    —Karen Harris on March 26, 2018
  • Well, I used to have my scraps organized by color, but since my last move over 4 years ago, my scraps are so not organized; I must go digging.

    —Jane on March 26, 2018
  • Stored mostly in plastic bins and boxes. I am in the process of organizing by colors now. Would love the book.

    —Betty 4 4 on March 26, 2018
  • I cut them into squares from 1″ up to 5″ and store each size in a clear shoe box that sits on my wall shelf

    —Cathy Duley on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much—I just go digging!

    Mary on Lake Pulaski on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps organized by color in bags and the Batiks are in separate bags from the 100% cottons. So much easier to find what I need in a hurry.

    —Jill Ames on March 26, 2018
  • I wish I was more organized, we’ve moved twice in the last two years~ retired to one home, then decided to move out of state!! So, now, I have a wonderful sewing room, and many bins of fabrics! It’s my goal this year to work on my scraps!!! And this book may just be the incentive to get moving and create something wonderful!!!

    —Lou Wagner on March 26, 2018
  • I have a large sealed tote that I put on my small scraps in but in it I have organized bundles of leftover bindings, strips of various widths and lengths. If there are big pieces of scraps I just store them with the original fabric.

    —Rebecca Toman on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps organized in bins by color! It makes it easier for me! Love Lissa and love this book!!!
    I cannot wait to try one of these quilts!!’

    —Julie Hardgrave on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scrap fabrics in a big basket and go digging!!!

    —Connie Hoffmeyer on March 26, 2018
  • I store mine by color in plastic bins on shelves.

    —Rhonda McAninley on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric scraps in bins and boxes everywhere. Every box that comes in my house is a potential scrap storage! Love all the pictures I have seen in this book preview, would love to make them all.

  • I am in the process of sorting my scraps. Some of my scraps are in large zip lock bags and others are stored in square plastic gallon ice cream contains that stack nicely on top of each other.

    —Carolyn on March 26, 2018
  • I haphazardly store my scraps in five plastic tubs (different sizes), a stuffed 2016 Quilt Con tote bag, and a laundry basket. I suspect Lissa’s book would help me dive into them more…

    —Amy L on March 26, 2018
  • I have a dresser in my sewing space, a guest bedroom. I use the dresser drawers. I am a fairly new quilter so I don’t have a huge stach.

    Thanks,
    Mary

    —Mary on March 26, 2018
  • Not organized. What a waste of sewing time…

    —Judy Maggio on March 26, 2018
  • I try but am unsuccessful! Oh well! I do enjoy the hunt for the perfect scrap in my dark and light color tubs!

    —LoriLynn on March 26, 2018
  • I have three large containers filled with my scraps. I kind of like burrowing through the bins to find just the right colour or size for whatever project I am working on. It’s like discovering new treasures every time!

    —Jan Wills on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in ziplock bags and boxes-not organized at all. Thanks so much for the fun giveaway. I can’t wait to get a copy of Oh, Scrap!!!

    —Becky S on March 26, 2018
  • I have some scraps in bins. Some I store with the yardage which is wrapped around comic book boards in plastic containers. Those are organized by color. Trying to get more organized! It is an ongoing battle!
    Love the patterns in the book. Hope I win!

    —Sandy on March 26, 2018
  • I love the Indian Blanket quilt. I have been trying to use my stash in my projects and know that I have enough to make several of the quilts in the book!

    —Pam Gantz on March 26, 2018
  • I have two bookcases with baskets for color, then one basket with all scraps waiting for the book.

    Thanks

    —Maerilyn on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and boxes sorted by size and colour, then review these at least every month in hope of inspiration. A glimpse at "Oh Scraps" looks like it could help with my scrappy projects!

    —Liz on March 26, 2018
  • Some organized some not, but I wish it was all nice and tidy.

    —Janna on March 26, 2018
  • Small scraps get all tumbled together in a medium clear plastic bin; large ones are put into clear plastic drawers with larger remnants, sorted by color. Looking at colors/patterns and planning projects is my favorite thing about quilting!

    —Linda York on March 26, 2018
  • Not organized at all! Big tub under my cutting table so I have to go dig for my fabric choices! Lol

    —Barb C on March 26, 2018
  • I spent 2 months organizing my massive stash! It’s by color and size, used 1100 comic book boards and store in A glass door cabinet. Smaller scraps by size in plastic containers, odd sizes by color ncute wicker baskets. Larger pieces folded using the ruler method and stored in 10 built in cabinets in sewing room. The larger yardage ones are folded and on shelves in my walk in linen closet. I love it, I am blessed!

    —Anna Mae Remmick on March 26, 2018
  • There are about six quilts in this book calling to me! What a treat it would be to win.

    —Susan Reynolds on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps organized in bins by color. I LOVE scrap quilts. They are my favorite. I keep very small pieces and use them!

    —Kathy Timmons on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in plastic bins but not organized. We are moving right now and for the first time I will have a quilting room. I will be organizing my scraps when I finally have a place to store them.

    Kristie on March 26, 2018
  • I have three methods to store my scraps: Left over strips get thrown under my cutting table, smalls pieces are cut to size and stored with like sizes in a zip lock bag and larger piece are stored by color in bins that fit in a cubby shelf.

    —Robin on March 26, 2018
  • I am attempting to organize my scraps and have found that having plastic bins with lids and a post it on the end with the size is very helpful. I try to organize my leftover fabric after every project.

    —Donna on March 26, 2018
  • I love this book! Have always saved every scrap and they are all crammed in a big bin (or maybe 2 or 3..). Feeling inspired to organize them now though. Beautiful book!

    —Tracy Bell on March 26, 2018
  • This looks like the perfect book for me! I really need to gain control of the scraps and this book looks like the right one foe me!

    —Ellie on March 26, 2018
  • I love scrap quilts so I have lots of scraps. I store the small pieces in the clear shoe boxes by color or type. I have 30s prints together and batiks together, but other types are by color. I have the shelving units with the square shelves for the bigger pieces. I have too much fabric, but I love being able to make quilts from my stash. My daughters shop my stash when they quilt. I am fairly organized.

    —Kay Menefee on March 26, 2018
  • I have an oversize bin. My mom is coming to live with us so perhaps now is the time to organize! would love the book….

    Nancy Jo on March 26, 2018
  • I sort by color and fabric type in bins or stacked on shelves, and in bags. When working on a project the fabric gets all mixed together so eventually I have to sort again. Alas, I am not that organized.

    —Sue P on March 26, 2018
  • i have the ubiquitous IKEA open cubby shelving that I have attempted to color sort my larger scraps. I have another collection of old plastic coffee containers full of my leftovers from the cutting table and the tiny triangles from stitch and flip flying geese. Yesterday I found myself throwing away selvedges and gasped at the thought, so I pulled them out of the rubbish to start saving for a selvedge triangles bee challenge. In other words, I have scraps everywhere!

    —Jennifer P on March 26, 2018
  • I use boxes, bins, closets, shelves and filing cabinets to keep my fabric organized. Still have a way to go to get it where I can see it all!

    Susan Case on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? What’s that? Oh scrap… I just throw it in a bag of bin. I also use some of those scraps for applique.

    —Judy Thompson on March 26, 2018
  • I toss my scraps into tote bins, so they are disorganized and I dig thru them when I’m looking for something.

    —Deb G. in VA on March 26, 2018
  • I have plastic containers filled with scraps sorted by batik, civil war and other. When I need scraps I sort through the appropriate container. I like remembering quilts or projects I used some of these scraps on.

    —Judy Clark on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins, by color. What a wonderful looking book to help use up those scraps.

    charlotte m. on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps in a container that has small drawers, organized by colour. It seems to work! for now!!

    —Marg on March 26, 2018
  • I store in baggies, but not color coordinated.

    —Mindy Wolfe on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps in see through plastic containers, by color, so I can easily locate them. I need some help using them up and these patterns in Lissa’s book look like just the ticket. They are beautiful!

    —Kathy Richins on March 26, 2018
  • I "try" to keep them in containers!! Doesn’t always work.

    —Lori Isvik on March 26, 2018
  • Organized?? What is this "organized" you speak of?? I have some bins and bags I shove fabric into, but it doesn’t seem to have much rhyme or reason any more. All are overflowing too.

    —Jennifer Clink on March 26, 2018
  • I’m looking for the perfect scrap organizer. I just went from plastic bags to see through containers. They’re in color order, but not size. I guess I’m just doing "organized to me". I mostly need to use some of them, they tend to have a life of their own and gradually take over.

    —Arlene on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps go in big bins. I’ve never even used them, but plan to some day. This book looks like the inspiration I need!

    —Ayn on March 26, 2018
  • My yardage is on shelves, my scraps in a shoe box – not organized. Eeek!

    —Ann L. on March 26, 2018
  • I have bins for storing my fat quarters and partial fat quarters by color. If the scrap is smaller than I want to store in the bins, I cut them into various square sizes (1.5, 2, 2.5, 3.5 and 5 inches) and store them in containers by size. Then I have one bin for any strings that are leftover.

    —Donna on March 26, 2018
  • I try to keep them sorted by size. But I also have a basket of "other sizes" that periodically gets a sort. But not too often.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win. Congratulations on the new book.

    —Dee W on March 26, 2018
  • After a project I tie a selvage ribbon around all the leftover scraps and put this bundle in a large tote. When I want to make a scrappy project I know I can go to this tote to gather these treasured bits and pieces. My scrappy quilts with their unexpected splashes of colors and prints lead me down a memory lane of a quilter’s life well lived.

    —Betty Meyer on March 26, 2018
  • I am one of those “b” persons. Some of my scraps are cut into useable pieces, but they are here and there in boxes and tubs, etc. one of those someday projects, get organized so they can be put to use. Hoping her book will help me with the color choosing part of quilting. A very scary place for me. Thanks for this opportunity. Congratulations on all your accomplishments Lisa! You are an inspiration

    —Robin on March 26, 2018
  • Try to stay organized with shelves and containers but sometimes – can’t find what I know is there. Then I have to organize a treasure hunt!

    —Marsha Teter on March 26, 2018
  • I cut my scraps into a variety of sizes with a die cutter then store them in containers labeled by size and color.

    —Debra on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in two drawers underneath my cutting table. One drawer is organized and one is not. Would love to win this book and fabrics. I love scrap quilts!

    —Eleanor K HunzingerI on March 26, 2018
  • I try to keep my scraps organized by color in boxes. Those scraps keep accumulating, and then I have to work them into the boxes. I need to start using up more of my scraps. What a wonderful book to help me in trying to tame my scraps!

    —Ann West on March 26, 2018
  • I’ve always kept my scraps together by color, just makes sense to me. Some in bags, some in bins. Thanks for this amazing giveaway!

    —Teresa P on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps by colour and size. In storage boxes, shoe boxes and bins. No matter how many scrap quilts I make the supply does not diminish. Love the book!

    —Susan on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps by color, designer, and whatever else. Need to get busy and work on my scraps.

    —Velva on March 26, 2018
  • This book looks wonderful! In most books I only find one or two quilts that I want to make but "Oh, Scrap!" is full of quilts that I love already! I have quite a large stash stored by color in bins that are labeled clearly so that I can pull out just what I’m looking for…but if I don’t find it there I can go to my neighbor (whose stash is bigger than mine) and get just what I need there. Isn’t it great to have neighbors who quilt and love the same type of fabrics you love? God blessed me the day we became friends! I would love to have Lissa Alexander as a neighbor but I’ll be very happy with her book, "Oh, Scrap!" because I love her use of color, design, and scraps.

    —Bettye King on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in two drawers underneath my cutting table. One drawer is organized and one is not. Would love to win this book and fabrics. I love scrap quilts! This is not a duplicate statement. Please enter me in the drawing!

    —Eleanor K HunzingerI on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in color coded bins…and steelcase cabinets… and boxes…and the floor if I’m currently working on a project. I didn’t mean for it to get this out of hand.

    —Debbie Camp on March 26, 2018
  • Well, I started out organized by color, and looking at the bins, perhaps it’s time to REorganize by color. I love the idea of color coordinated scrappy..this book looks right up my alley!

    —Karin Callander on March 26, 2018
  • I have bins and try to be organized . Thanks for the chance.

    —Hanke on March 26, 2018
  • My system is NOT so much a system as a "starting point of organization" (which actually began about 10 years ago when I was TRYING to get organized!)
    I have my fabrics mostly organized by colour… but the smaller scrap bits are organized by colour (or theme) then placed in a large plastic bag. All of these bags are then stored in a large Rubber storage container.
    So.. I start a project by finding the larger pieces in my shelves… then I go to my Rubber storage container and pull out the small coordinating fabrics. I find this gives a little "boost" for the eye of "random" differing fabrics within the quilt!
    Certainly not the most organized or scientific method… but it works for me!

    Mary

    —Mary Garfield on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are collected and organized in "clam shells" but I don’t keep the really tiny ones – those go to a charity. Sometimes I keep a vintage scrap just because I like looking at it.

    Gail on March 26, 2018
  • some of my scraps are sorted by color, some by shape and some are just a little bit of everything thrown together.

    —jo on March 26, 2018
  • I sort my scraps by color and have them in see through storage bags. All the bags are then put into a large bin.

    —Debbie Eide on March 26, 2018
  • I just keep any scraps folded up with the bigger pieces of the same fabric.

    —Susan Green on March 26, 2018
  • Wish I was better organized – just been throwing all my scraps in tubs. LOVE the name of the book AND would love to have it!!!!!!!!!!1

    —KANDICE OHERN on March 26, 2018
  • I use clear plastic bins and then my husband built shelves in the closet in my sewing room to store them on. This method has worked out great.

    Sandy on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps go into three small bins based on size with the colors mixed together. This may need to change soon, however. In addition to having a pile of new scraps from the last couple (few?) years that have been waiting to get sorted and stored, my friends and quilt guild members have all learned that I save anything down to a 1-1/2” square, and they’re giving me all their scraps too! I can’t wait to see what I can make from all of it (someday), but I’ll need to find a new way to sort and store all of it in the mean time.

    Meredith on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by color and size and stored in bins or little boxes on shelves of an old wardrobe that had been my sister’s. My husband removed the sliding doors and replaced them with ones that close. It’s nice to have my fabric in one place (mostly), to keep sunlight off them, and find what I want without too much digging!

    —Linda Smith on March 26, 2018
  • I have a large laundry basket that I put them in….then I dig for what I need. I cut all my smaller pieces into 1 1/2″ squares for my leader and ender postage stamp quilt it’s all civil war prints!!! Then larger pieces are stored by color in baskets all folded and neat!!!

    —Twyla on March 26, 2018
  • How do I organize my scraps? I’m looking for ways to organize…. that’s why Ive enjoyed your blogs..Right now they are just thrown into a bin. Fingers crossed I win

    —Debra Stebbins on March 26, 2018
  • I have one huge tub that holds my scraps, and every once in a while, I refold and rearrange fabrics by color. But…then I dig and coordinate and love on those colors until I am right back where I started!!

    —Amy C on March 26, 2018
  • I use lots of shelves, but everything is usually all around the floor!

    —Margie Elliott on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps in a bin with the project until it’s finished. Once I’m done binding I fold the larger scraps and group them by color in dresser drawers.

    —Wanda Williams on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are mostly sorted into bins by color–I confess I have a pile that needs to be dealt with! This book looks wonderful!

    —Jean on March 26, 2018
  • My method is mayhem! I love the happenstance of discovering unlikely colours snuggling up to each other in a box of scraps!

    —Linda Macullo on March 26, 2018
  • by color in organized bins. makes so much easier to color design a quilt. thanks for a chance to win.

    —Marsha on March 26, 2018
  • Lissa has a wonderful sense of color! I store my scraps and fabric in clear bins, but it’s still a Big Dig to find what I want for a project.

    —Joann N on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are all in one big plastic bin. Sadly, I am not organized enough to divide them by color.
    Thanks so much for the blog hop. It was such a treat. I have so many new blogs to follow now!

    Grace Lombardo on March 26, 2018
  • I am mostly organized by color in big plastic containers and zip lock bags, but there are several rebel scraps on the loose here and there that need to be corralled. I also have some cut into strips and squares, but these are not color sorted and sort of a fabric jungle.

    —Mary D on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in totes, the big ones (I have a lot of sxraps). Right now they are all together, I do have my batiks separated in their own totes.i mostly make string quilts with them, I don’t have to think or plan! LOL

    But these quilts look beautiful. I’ll definitely get this book!

    —Darcey Tredway on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in small bins or boxes on shelves…pretty organized .

    —Carole L on March 26, 2018

    —Neena singh on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric and scraps in clear plastic shoe boxes. I do have a couple boxes mixed with every color little tiny scraps just waiting for inspiration.

    —Winks Krislen Horlings on March 26, 2018
  • I like to store all of my scraps neatly folded and on my shelf in my sewing room. They are colour coded and make up a very pretty wall in my room, kind of like art.

    —Gina B on March 26, 2018

  • I have been on a mission the last few years to be better organized. I start in earnest at the new year. I have finished some UFOs and really try to use scraps to complete some new projects. This book would be very helpful in my efforts!

    —Jill Auxer on March 26, 2018
  • I use plastic drawers to store my scraps.

    —Lori on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps sorted by size in plastic shoeboxes, but I’m thinking it’s time to upset the apple cart—it’s easy to keep them neatly stored (at least til I rummage through looking for something, but I’m always looking in every box for a particular color or type. Playing with fabric is fun! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Joana Simmers on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are semi organized until I start a new project and paw through them for just the right one. Sometimes I use them as they come out and it’s a surprise, most of the time I use the pulled out one unless it’s WAY off. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    —Grams on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in plastic drawers by color/style and boxes//not so much on the organized scale. I have trouble knowing where to start on making a scrap quilt and how to be sure it will look good when it’s all put together. Can’t wait to read your tips on colorizing a scrap quilt.

    —Elizabeth on March 26, 2018
  • I go digging.

    —Susan on March 26, 2018
  • Beautiful book! I store my scraps by color.

    —Christi on March 26, 2018
  • Organized, me?? No, my ‘real’ quilting materials are, but the scraps? All over the place in boxes, bags, you name it.

    —Hedda on March 26, 2018
  • Thank-you so much for this wonderful offer!
    My first ‘cut’ is batiks because I like to use them alone. Next is by shape –
    2 shoe boxes Of triangles from corners. I separate by colors within those
    groups loosely. Fat quarters n larger by colors. Those copy paper size boxes
    Usually hold fabric n pattern for a whole quilt top, stack well n are easy to label.
    Your book looks like a Must Have!!

    —Peggy on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in bins and drawers. I try to keep them organized by color. I think its a losing battle. I love making scrap quilts.

    —Emily on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in storage containers of all sizes and in zip lock bags with scraps that go together. I am the lucky recipient of scraps from some of my Guild members. I also save those little pieces and have been teased about that habit, but I think at my age it is time to give them to the birds because my scrap supply seems to be endless. Thank you for the give away I would love to win.

    —Janice Park on March 26, 2018
  • I have Ikea cabinets full of fabrics. Little scraps I put in plastic bins.

    —Robin Crittenden on March 26, 2018
  • Organized, I just go digging.
    Hoping one day to be more organized

    —KELLY on March 26, 2018
  • I use clear bins, about 15, for my scraps after they are cut to usable sizes and shapes. I store them on racks by size and shape. This makes it easy to pull what I need for the project. Three times a year I set aside a day or two to cut down accumulated scraps to usable sizes.

    —amy f on March 26, 2018
  • Shelves, baskets, dresser drawers, etc, etc, etc.

    —Patti Wright on March 26, 2018

    —Sue Beeman on March 26, 2018

    —Kathy h on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such.

    —Chris Zofkie on March 26, 2018
  • Larger scraps are in bins by color like Lissa. Small scraps are just tossed in a bin…I can’t bare to throw any fabric away.

    —Leanne Mal on March 26, 2018
  • In bins , sorted by colour, but not cut to any shape or size, and, alas, I do continue to save all those tiny pieces that probably should be tossed to the birds.

    —Elaine Atwood on March 26, 2018
  • Boy oh boy do I have scraps, and it’s time to do something with them. Love these quilts

    —Rita on March 26, 2018

    —Mary B on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scrap stash in small to medium bins and some right next to my sewing machine to use as leaders and enders to save thread and to make little mug rugs!

    —Lori on March 26, 2018
  • I store everywhere. Fat quarters in wire baskets. Yardage on closet shelves & bins. Others are in tubs under the spare bed! Those gathers for a specific project are in baskets on shelves. Unbelievably since its grouped by designer or color it is very organized.

    —Tammi Williams on March 26, 2018
  • I am organized in my own way but it is generally in a digging way for scraps!
    The real question is what do I consider a scrap?

    —Vicky on March 26, 2018
  • I try to cut strips if I have enough leftovers and store them in plastic bags more by shading than colors. Real scraps that are odd sizes are stored also in plastic bags again by shading as light colors, dark colors, solids etc. love scraps.

    RoseAnn on March 26, 2018
  • Organized ? Not so much – I go digging, Maybe someday I can organize according to size. I do have fun digging deep into my stash however.

    —Carol Poitras on March 26, 2018
  • Totally UNorganized. About every six months I start on a campaign to put them in some order, BUT I always end up distracted by something like A NEW BOOK. And I do love this book. It has several quilts I’d like to make. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Nancy Lyman on March 26, 2018
  • I used to dump my scraps in a bin but recently took the time to sort through, iron, and cut them to 1 1/2, 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 inch strips and squares and bin them. I also have a bin with smaller strips and squares because I just couldn’t bear to throw them out when I could possibly still find a use for them 😍 – I love scraps!

    —Cherie on March 26, 2018
  • I’m so not organized, I go digging in my tubs for the perfect scraps !

    —Linda on March 26, 2018
  • I store fabric in color groups in bins but…I seem to also store fabric wherever I find room!

    —Karen thierry on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps in tubs and boxes wherever I have room not very organized but its fun to go thru and see what you have now and them always a surprise or two inside I forgot about

    —debra czepa on March 26, 2018
  • I store some fabric in the basement in plastic bins–according to color. I have stacks of fabric in my sewing room, stacked in color order. I have shoe boxes full of fat quarters sorted by color. I have some fabrics sorted by subject (Christmas) and stored in baggies with the pattern I want to use with them. I have some fabrics on metal shelving in the closet stacked in color order. My husband built me a large wooden cabinet and the fabric in there is also stacked by color.

    —Anita on March 26, 2018
  • Currently, I have a scrap bin. I’m working to organize all my fabric, so may look at sorting by size.

    —Sheila Erickson on March 26, 2018
  • Not organized as well as Lisa but partially. Mostly I just go digging. 😊

    —Tracine Charest on March 26, 2018
  • I have three main categories of fabrics; scraps (sorted mostly by color), pre-cuts (by designer) and kits (which is where most of my scraps come from). I love to play and mix ’em up! It’s a little difficult to break open those pre-cuts tho! Thanks for the chance to win such a fabulous book and some of Lissa’s scraps (OMG)!

    —Pam on March 26, 2018
  • I put up four (5-shelf), 18″-24″ deep shelving units and organize fabrics in colors in fairly large (15 gal) bins. These plastic bins are quite heavy, so I’m rearranging with the large bins on the bottom shelves and using smaller bins on mid- & upper shelves.
    Large, plastic Artbins are really nice and fit perfectly on upper shelve, but they are quite expensive. I’d like to put up nice white, wooden cubbies, but worry about the sun, dust and humidity effect on fabrics stacked in cubbies.

    —Susan B on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in boxes that I put there as I work on a quilt.

    —BJ Stultz on March 26, 2018

  • I am fairly organized; bins and shelves. I am not so good at putting things back when finished with a project so I then going rummaging around in my stash! 🙂

    —Kathy on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in plastic bins organized by colour, and a couple extras like Christmas and Halloween.

    —MoeWest on March 26, 2018
  • I store my stash scraps in bins and baskets and drawers, mostly sorted by color but some by theme, collected with a project in mind.

    —Cathy Cavagnaro on March 26, 2018
  • I have small plastic containers for small scraps sorted by color. Fat quarters are displayed in an upright box with cardboard inserts separating the themes: baby, food, beach etc. Larger fabric amounts I recently used hanging file folders and crates. The crates stack and I can at a glance see what fabric is available. Dividers between 1 and 2 yards. Any amounts larger than 2 yards are in Large plastic containers. What I don’t like about this is that they are very heavy and stacking and unstacking is difficult. Oh is this an indicator that I have WAY more fabric than a human needs?

    —Kate on March 26, 2018
  • Organized, not so much, I just go digging. But that’s the fun part. I often come up with a piece of fabric I totally forgot about, and then I try to remember the quilt I originally put it in.

    —Joy Dickson on March 26, 2018
  • I have most of my scraps sorted by color in a couple of dressers. I say most because I do have a few floating around on my sewing table! I try to be neat but that doesn’t always happen.

  • I use bins, boxes, shelves, drawers, whatever space may be available and then start digging…not much organization!

    —Marilyn Fite on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are organized by size in plastic shoe boxes. I really need to organize them a little more by separating within the sizes by color.

    —Linda in PA on March 26, 2018
  • I have bins and boxes and closet shelves. I need to use them up!!

    —Kris on March 26, 2018
  • Ha, ha, ha, ha. My scraps are in every kind of container possible, BUT they are sorted by color. Love scrappy quilts.

    —Judy Purcell on March 26, 2018
  • Bigger scraps are sorted by color in plastic boxes. Tinier ones by color in plastic bags.

    —Glenda Britten on March 26, 2018
  • I have several bins of scraps that I organize by color

    —Dana on March 26, 2018
  • I would fall into the second category of bins, shelves and boxes…but I also need to add ziploc bags to that list. I have 15 years of leftovers…each quilt that I have made has its own ziploc of leftover fabric and I need a plan to use all this up someday! Thanks for this chance to win this gorgeous book!!

    —Tracey H on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in order by size.m

    —Sherry on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps sorted by color in different places in my sewing room. Would love to see how Lissa stores her scraps. Her book looks amazing.

    —Jaylene B. on March 26, 2018
  • OH NO!!! Not so much!!!

    —jackie norwood on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabrics mostly in see-through plastic bins by color. My DIL recently started an organizing business & beautifully organized my sewing room for me!

    —Margie F. on March 26, 2018
  • Maybe someday I’ll organize my scraps, but for now they’re in a couple of bins. I do enjoy the hunt through the bins. It’s like looking for hidden treasure.

    —Madeline on March 26, 2018
  • My "organization" of scraps is somewhere in between. I do have those plastic drawers, categorized as warm batiks, cool batiks, warm brights, cool brights, and a whole 3 drawer unit for light, medium and dark neutrals, and a plastic shoe box for blacks, and another shoe box for Christmas. Oh, yes, and a box of warm strings and a box of cool strings. HOWEVER,lest that should sound too efficient, I also have a couple of plastic shoe boxes of scraps waiting to get into the right drawers, and a pile on my sewing table from my current project, and probably a few other piles stashed somewhere else, waiting to be organized…. My rationalization is that I will use these scraps sometime, and that I make lots of charity quilts, so can’t afford to buy fabric for all of them. This looks like a very helpful and inspiring book.

    —Carol Johnson on March 26, 2018
  • i cut my scraps into strips and squares organized by size,

    —carolyn montgomery on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and baskets.

    —Barbara on March 26, 2018
  • I am definitely "scrap happy". I hate cutting scraps into smaller pieces because I may need the larger size, but I love digging for just what I need. Oh Scrap is a perfect title.

    —Judy P. on March 26, 2018
  • A scrap quilter can NEVER have enough scraps!! Count me in for the win, please!!

    —Sandy Vanya on March 26, 2018
  • As I am sewing I have a little baggie I put the scraps in I want to keep like triangles. Then I have a bigger bag I add larger scraps to. Then I have a plastic container I use for the much larger scrap pieces from projects. And then each project I’m about to begin I’m excited knowing I’ll have more scraps for another project. Obviously my scrap organization is a work in progress organizing.

    —Linda K Letourneau on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are not organized at all. I have a clear container that I throw them in so at least I can see them so I know where to dig! I would love this book!

    —Susan Stein on March 26, 2018
  • I just loved reading Lisa’s blog. What an interesting story of her journey! I keep scraps all in one large bin but they are not organized. I would love to win her book. I really like her quilts and would love to make at least one from her patterns!

    —Lois on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps started out organized by colour and in separate boxes but then I began to toss them in a large bucket to sort later and there they stay. 🙃

    —Barb on March 26, 2018
  • Wow! Just in Lissa’s short paragraph I learned so much! This book looks like it will help me to the next step of using my scraps in a more beautiful way. I can’t wait to read and get started. Thank you for the sweet giveaway!

    —Loris Mills on March 26, 2018
  • I have two moveable sets of drawers, and several baskets of scraps, plus shelves with larger pieces, project boxes with scraps left over from major projects, and a corner of my cutting table with scraps from my most recent project, not to mention the bags of scraps under my cutting table given to me to make charity quilts!!
    I would love the book to inspire me and help make room in my sewing space! I would love to fabric too – I know just the people I could make one on those quilts for🙃

    —Vanessa Cato on March 26, 2018
  • So far I have save scraps- not sorted them could use ideas on how to sort them into usable groups!

    —Karen on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in all types of containers, usually by size.

    —Kathie L on March 26, 2018
  • I go digging, I attach a bag that I recieved from a fabric store to the side of my cutting table and all the scraps go in there when I am cutting. When the bag is full I hang it up on my peg board and start on a new bag.

    —Janette Anderson on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not in my house, just in a couple of piles and I go digging. I know it isn’t the most efficient, but it is my way.

    —stephanie woodward on March 26, 2018
  • I use a set of stacking drawers . . . in addition to every horizontal space in the studio (including the floor) 😀

    —Janet Brani on March 26, 2018
  • I use hangers, boxes, bins, drawers, bookshelves, but my favorites are the "to be sorted" scraps. Will definitely be gone before they will, but have friends who will use them too.

    —SharonK on March 26, 2018
  • I was taught how to quilt by an 84 year old mennonite woman who knew all the "old cuts" and she also created in me the love of scraps and the whole idea of not wasting any material, but to make something out of nothing. I store my scraps on some shelves as well as in clear containers by colors, mostly so I can see what colors I have. Because I am pretty new at this, many times I am not sure which direction to take it all. Scrappy quilts are my favorite as it reminds me that beautiful "things" can be made out of bits and pieces and it reminds me that it is a good way to view life too.

    —Jenny Spielman on March 26, 2018
  • I store by color in containers–small in plastic with covers larger in bins folded.

    —Pat on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins and boxes by colors!

    —Linda on March 26, 2018
  • This book looks awesome. I’ve never made a scrappy quilt but have wanted to. I store my scraps by color in plastic boxes. I’ve wondered if I should also separate by size or cut all to one specific size??????

    —Jeanne Nordquist on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are kind of sorted, but I need a better system. They are sorted by color and type. For example batiks, flannels, solids, cottons – then by color. However, some lines stay together or some categories, like African, stay together. I need to work at this!

    —Roxanne on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are not organized. I store them in a large glass jar on my cutting table.

    Carolyn Sweetman on March 26, 2018
  • Organized for sure. Saves time and effort that way. Lovely quilts.

    —Janey on March 26, 2018
  • I organize by colors in see through plastic shoelaces.

    —Betty nelson on March 26, 2018
  • I sort them by color in plastic see through boxes. Not the most efficient way but it works.

    —Anne on March 26, 2018
  • I sort my scraps by color in bins and shoeboxes.

    —Janet Beyea on March 26, 2018
  • I’m sorta organized. I have FQs in slots and scraps in boxes. Then I have to remember I have some small bins in another room when I gather up fabrics for a project. Lissa’s quilts are beautiful. What a wonderful giveaway. I hope I win.

    —Ann D on March 26, 2018
  • I have only recently set about to organize my scraps. They are sorted by color in clear boxes about twice as big as shoe boxes. When one or two are filled up, it’s time to do something with them. That’s the plan, anyways…lol

    —Mary Davidson on March 26, 2018
  • I love containers and store almost all of my fabric in plastic bins. Scraps also are housed in plastic or glass jars. I prefer any container that I can see into. Adds a lot of color to my sewing room. And I do try, yes try, to stay organized. Tending to stockpile the leftovers after finishing a project, I have to take periodic cleanup sessions to move those scraps. Love the quilts in your book Lissa.

    —lynn jarzombeck on March 26, 2018
  • I really want to win this great giveaway! I store scraps all in a jumble, and just dig. Fat Quarters are by color as are yardage, but seperitly.

    —Carol Nelms on March 26, 2018
  • I pre-cut all my scraps and keep them in bins by size.

    —Judy Bowers on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in a bin. I like to use them regularly so they all fit into one bin.

    —Lynn on March 26, 2018
  • I am a new quilter so I don’t have a good system yet. I have made a few quilts so I would love to make a quilt from the scraps I have collected so far!

    —Nora Murdock on March 26, 2018
  • I have a Longaberger hamper with all my scraps. They aren’t cut to any particular size. They are just tossed in and the hamper is overflowing but colorful.

    —Frances Claassens on March 26, 2018
  • ¿Organizado? ¡No tanto! Solo voy a cavar. Saludos.

    Translation: Organized? Not that much! I’m just going to dig. Greetings.

    —Margarita on March 26, 2018
  • I use the super sized 2 gallon Ziploc bags, storing each by color. Into a large tote:) Don’t even begin to believe I am organized because it still takes me forever to find things!! lol!

    —Cindy M on March 26, 2018
  • I tend to leave my scraps in the project bag rhey came from till I might be able to plug them into a new effort but wouldn’t mind being better organized and having tgem more visable………

    —Catherine Etter on March 26, 2018
  • Organized in totes by color: Reds & Oranges, Blues, Greens, Yellows, Purples, Pinks, Browns & Creams, Black & Whites–

    —MS Barb on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins, boxes, project bags with a pattern and bags. I have been trying very hard these last two years to use them up but I swear that when I turn the lights out they multiply.

    —Phyllis on March 26, 2018
  • I have two bins of strips, and two bins of chunks. Not the most organized, but I do like to sort through the bins.

    Susan on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such. I don’t have a huge stash of leftovers yet, but I’m working on it!

    —debby on March 26, 2018
  • ummmm – can I say all three??? i like to have organized bins, but then sometimes I just stuff them in a box… and then…. there are still some just kinda sitting waiting their turn in the light – ha ha

    Alycia C on March 26, 2018
  • I usually cut my scraps into pieces, 2 1/2″, 5″,3″,2 1/2″, etc. Then they are put into decrative photo boxes from Joanns. They have a label slot on end to put size into. Would love one of the scrap books to use up some of my ‘scraps’.

    —Marilyn Derks on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? I just go digging! This is something I have put in my goal list for 2018. Love the book – I actually am flunking scrappy – still like to "match" everything.

    —Annette Canonica on March 26, 2018
  • My fabric and scraps are all over the place. I use bookshelves for the yardage and fat quarters, and plastic bins for the smaller usable pieces. My closet has some fabric also.

    —Terry on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such.

    —Janet Wiener on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps sorted by color in 12 X 12 2″ tall boxes. Some colors require two boxes. All boxes are on shelves with the color showing on the end of the box. Makes it fairly easy to find the color that I am looking for there. Then there are the scraps that I have already put together to make quilt tops that are in plastic bags – ready & waitig. I do lots of charity quilts and have lots of people that bestow upon me their scraps – it’s really hard to keep up with it – but if I don’t I feel that so much time is wasted hunting through the piles. I would love to see Lissa’s organization tips and her scrap quilt patterns so I can bust this scrap stash and make room for new stuff – plus the veterans and homeless will appreciate the warmth that my quilts have to offer.

    —Eilene H on March 26, 2018
  • When I reorganized my sewing room a few years ago, I put scraps in bins by color.
    I love scrappy quilts and you can never have too many fabrics or scraps. Scrap quilts are what drew me to quilting many eons ago.

    —Bonnie on March 26, 2018
  • I have some organized but usually just go digging

    —Rebecca Stipe on March 26, 2018
  • Ah, those scraps. I keep trying to keep them sorted and organized by somehow ,Or think they call to others and voila there are more to be dealt with.
    Thanks for the chance to win

    —Catherine Denney on March 26, 2018
  • I normally just throw them into a ‘waste’ basket and then go through them when I want to find something different for another quilt.

    —Sheila on March 26, 2018
  • I have lots of scraps waiting for these patterns

    —Joel Sellers on March 26, 2018
  • I have a hodge podge of bins/totes/drawers-need to organize my organizers-just bought a shoe holder to go the back of closet door-will start sorting by color and then move my bigger fabric pieces into dresser drawers so I can see what I have. Always a process. Katie

    —Katherine Simonton on March 26, 2018
  • I organize a little bit by colour and a little bit by size…it could be better, I admit!

    Nita on March 26, 2018
  • I have a fabric closet with shelves for plastic shoe boxes from the discount store. FQs are filed by color in those without lids. Scraps are also sorted by color (and type – juvenile, flannel, etc.) in boxes with lids.

    —Mona on March 26, 2018
  • I have several large bins that I store yards of fabric in and smaller bins with charm packs, jelly rolls, fat quarters and, of course, scraps! I can’t bear to let my sraps go to waste.

    —Page Gebsen on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my strip scraps in a box by their width. Other scraps are thrown in a sack.

    —Lynn on March 26, 2018
  • They’re all in my sewing room; does that count? I separate small scraps by color into the plastic bins (about shoe box size), but tend to keep larger pieces in a drawer (or two or three) that tend to get out of control in a big hurry. When a drawer overflows it’s time to make a scrap quilt! "Controlled confusion!"

    —Debbie on March 26, 2018
  • I am not really organized. My scraps are stored as I sew projects in small containers. Then when that container is full-I move to a new container! My scraps are in containers but not sorted by either size or color. I’ve seen the systems where you cut everything into squares or strips but decided against that as I didn’t want to limit myself. I need this book to show me the way!

    —Debbie on March 26, 2018
  • I use everything I can. Boxes, tubs (mostly), plastic shoe boxes, old dressers even cookie tins. Of course I do a lot of digging for fabric but what fun it is!

    —Karen H on March 26, 2018
  • Some of my scraps are in large,clear ziplock bags- sorted by color family. The strips and precut squares are found everywhere! I try……I DO love scrappy quilts and have made sooo many that it’s hard to believe how many scraps remain!

    —Susan G on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in used plastic lettuce containers by colour. They stack very nicely on top of each other in my stash closet, and because they are clear, I can see at a glance what is in them

    —Heartsdesire on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps in bins by color but not as organized as they could be.

    —Jean N. on March 26, 2018
  • All of my scraps are sorted by colour – the bigger ones in drawers, and the smaller pieces in smaller plastic bins.
    The quilts in this book look so inviting!

    Jannette B. on March 26, 2018
  • I really wanted to say I am organized but that’s a fib. One afternoon I do add scraps to a sorted zip lock Baggie. But the sacks of scraps accumulate faster than the baggies fill up. I do have the habit of using all my scraps. Just not in the most timely or organized manner! Scrap quilts are the best!

    —Stephanie L. on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and closets and baskets and pretty glass jars, in other words it’s a bit chaotic! I think Oh Scrap will be one of my most favorite books ever!

    —Mary Ann Scanlon on March 26, 2018
  • I’m mostly in plastic bins, but when I’m working on a project things tend to go everywhere!

    —Leslie B Campbell on March 26, 2018
  • I use organized bind!

    —Lisa Garrett on March 26, 2018
  • I can’t be alone in having a partially organized scrap collection….some sorted by size and colour in bins, and some a horrible, tangled, wrinkled mess! I need help, and this book could be just what I need.

    —Laurel Marsolais on March 26, 2018
  • I never used to save scraps, I gave them to my sister. After seeing this great book, I think that I will start, and try a scrappy quilt.

    —Robert Nelms on March 26, 2018
  • I must not be organized at all. I have to admit I have scraps all over my floor. They aren’t all even in colors or shapes. Pretty. Looks almost like a mosiac. ha

    —carol on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps aren’t very organized. I have quite a few boxes and bags of leftover pieces. At some point I would like to sort them by color.

    —Verna on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins by color but my bins are overflowing! I think I need Lissa’s book to give me some ideas of what to do with all of them!

    —Susan Griffith on March 26, 2018
  • Mine were in bins and boxes, but I am in the process of organizing them. The smaller ones I’m cutting into the most used sizes and sorting by color. The larger ones, fat quarter or bigger, I am wrapping onto comic book boards and putting on these cube shelves by color. That way they are all visible and accessible but still look nice in my sewing room.

    —Christine E. on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are stored in bins, boxes and drawers! 2.5″ squares are in a bin to use as leaders and enders, light and dark sewn together. I have another bin where I store all of the completed 2.5″ twosomes. My 1.5″ strips are stored in photo boxes, one box each for light, medium and dark. I use drawers to store 6″ dresdens, 2.5″ strips, and 5″ squares. I have a big drawer for scraps that have not been cut down to useable sizes. Thanks for the chance to win! This book looks FABULOUS!!!

    Linda Pawlak on March 26, 2018
  • I have several containers, selvages, strips, small pieces, etc

    —laura on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric scraps in organized bins. I usually cut them out to whatever size I can get out of them when I finish a project. I have clear containers filled with 1 1/2 to 5 inch squares all separated by their sizes. Anything bigger is stored in a separate container to use for larger projects. Thank you for the awesome giveaway.

    Joyce Carter on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are cut and placed in plastic containers according to size. I go there first when planning a new project. Thanks for a great blog jopn

    —Becky in Georgia on March 26, 2018
  • My big scraps all go in a big bin and I have a bag for strings (smaller strips). Not too organized, but it works for me!

    —Ming Franks on March 26, 2018
  • Yes,in organized bins, like Lissa.Each bin has the main color swatch on the front of it.Sometimes neat and sometimes not so much. Thanks Lisa for your inspiration! Thanks Martingale for You Giveaway!

    —Linda on March 26, 2018
  • Number 2 for me: I use bins and shelves and boxes and closest and such. In my boxes are bags of different cut squares, bags of certain fabrics (my Liberty is all kept separately), fabric stashed by colour and size of scraps too. Scraps are everywhere and they keep me happy. Thank you for a great giveaway. x

    —Kay on March 26, 2018
  • More organized than they used to be, since they’re all in a single large bin now instead of scattered all over – but that’s the extent of it…

    —Pam on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps organized by fabric in clear plastic containers. It makes it easy to see (and remember!) the fabrics I’ve used.

    —Jane Sprague on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in organized bins by color. This makes it very easy to pull fabrics for a scrap project!

    —Susan Stanton on March 26, 2018

    —Sharon on March 26, 2018
  • I use the plastic bags that sheets and towels come in when you buy them. I need to use them up. This would be a great book to own.

    —beth d. on March 26, 2018
  • Cubbies, bags, bins, baskets, glass candy/cookie canisters – not very organized!

    —Nancy on March 26, 2018
  • I am just starting to quilt, so I don’t have a lot of material. But what I do have I store in plastic containers. What I do like to collect are books with patterns and info on techniques these are easy to arrange in my sewing area.

    —Sharon Shergold on March 26, 2018
  • I use plastic boxes and shelves for my scraps. I do, however, need help keeping them organized after I have "rummaged" through them! Thanks for an awesome giveaway.

    —Nancy B on March 26, 2018
  • I have two shoe storage towers filled with folded scraps, precuts, 5″ squares, and baggies I cut of squares by sizes from 2″ to 4 1/2″

  • i have a few plastic containers for fabric and 1 huge plastic container of scrappy fabric and it’s not organized into colors, yet lol:) … i have to scratch around into my scrappy to find the correct color fabric which i need for my project … one day i will be very organized or maybe soon 🙂

    —Shirley on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are stored somewhat by color and also by type, but my plan is start cutting them up and storing them by size. I expect to be busy for a long time. This book is an inspiration to get started and do a little at a time so those scraps will get used.

    —Lisa Zook on March 26, 2018
  • I have open shelves for bigger pieces and clear bins for smaller pieces, sorted by color or theme and by squares and strips and what size those are.

    —Sue Cahill on March 26, 2018
  • I save my scraps and give them to my guild for the animal shelter. They make them into doggie beds for the dogs waiting to be adopted.

    —Barb W on March 26, 2018
  • I LOVE scraps. I have several vintage scrap quilts and just love looking at them, what stories they tell.

    —Linda Lawson on March 26, 2018
  • I sort by colour and type, civil war reproductions has it’s own bin.

    —Virginia Worden on March 26, 2018
  • I fold my scraps together with fat quarters of like color and store them in an antique bookshelf. I don’t really think of them as scraps – even when the pieces are small – it’s all fabric, for making quilts :0) What an exciting giveaway! Thanks for the chance!

    —Janet on March 26, 2018
  • I cut all scraps into 2 1/2” squares or 2 1/2” strips. These get stored in pull out drawers.

    —Connie Koontz on March 26, 2018
  • At one point I tried to organize my scraps by color, but they soon got away from me. This book looks so awesome. I have enough scraps to make every single pattern 😉 Would love a copy. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Lin H on March 26, 2018
  • I separate my scraps by size. My little scraps go into a large container that later I can grab handfuls for a confetti type quilt. And the bigger pieces are separated by color and possible sizes that can be cut from them.

    LaTawnia Porter on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much but I have tried at times to be better. Love this book and would love to win it or the bundles. Either way I would have fun with them. Thank you!

    —Audrey on March 26, 2018
  • I try to organize, but inevitably have to dig when I start a new project.

  • Oh, I need this book! I have a lot if scraps and they are calling me!

    —Beth Wills on March 26, 2018
  • I’m starting to organize but it’s still really "digging in" to a bin to find the right fabric.

  • My fabric is organized in totes on shelves my husband built in my sewing room closet❤️

    —Lois Capper on March 26, 2018
  • I have two plastic "sweater" boxes, one for light-colored scraps & one for dark-colored one. Both are so full now, the lids won’t go on tight anymore. I suppose I should have a third box for medium-colored scraps. I actually used some a few days ago. But I need to use up more of them.

    —Trish Ferranti on March 26, 2018
  • I keep most of my scraps in large see through bags separated by color, but I admit to a large collection in a bin that is not separated out. Scraps are my fastest growing stash element, I can hardly keep up with them! Love your book, and I would love to make Surrounded and Indian Blanket to start. Thank you!

    —Barbara Dahl on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my fabrics and precuts organized by designer/collection. Once I’ve opened the precuts or cut up the yardage, I toss my scraps in a basket and when I finish the project I organize the scraps by size and color. The itty-bitty scraps go in a large vintage jar I keep on my desk so I can just enjoy the colorful rainbow!

    —Gina M on March 26, 2018
  • I keep scraps in the zippered vinyl bags that matress pads come in.

    —Sharon on March 26, 2018
  • I started to organize- but it quickly outgrew the bins so now it’s closets, bags etc etc. Help!

    —Ruth Anne on March 26, 2018
  • What a lovely array of scrap quilts! What a happy grouping, such fun! Can’t wait to get started!

    Carolyn Barnett on March 26, 2018
  • Small scraps are sorted by color in bins on a bookshelf under my ironing station. FQ or larger go in cabinets by color.

    —Heather G on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps in bins sorted by color and genre. Lissa’s book looks awesome!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins , but I can’t say my scraps are really organized!

    —Judy Jones on March 26, 2018
  • I have my 2.5 inch squares organized by color in bins and my scraps for string quilts organized by color in bins. Every thing else is organized by color in an assortment of boxes. Still can’t find anything when I need it. Lol

    —Sheila Bird on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves-closets, the garage, whatever can hold another piece of fabric!

    —Ginny on March 26, 2018
  • Yes, I have most of my scraps organized by color in plastic bins and the rest waiting to become organized in a cardboard box!

    —Vicki Sprain on March 26, 2018
  • Bins, drawers and what ever. Flat if a big thing for me. IF cut to size then sizes together.

    —Virginia Smith on March 26, 2018
  • I use baskets, bins, cabinets, etc.

    —Karan on March 26, 2018
  • What a happy and gorgeous array of scrap quilts! Can’t wait to get started.

    Carolyn Barnett on March 26, 2018
  • I’m a cross between using bins, shelves, boxes and such AND just going digging! I store my scraps very hap-hazard; some are semi-organized in 12×12 plastic scrapbook cases, some are in a HUGE galvanized tub (overflowing) and some are all over the floor, couch and table, and in drawers. Gonna LOVE this book!

    —Christy on March 26, 2018
  • I have been seriously sewing scrap quilts this year. For charity through our guild!
    I store my scraps in a two step system. First anything smaller than a fat quarter goes into the plastic shoe box with other friends of the same color. Then as it gets to a smaller size, it is cit into strips of various widths, 2″ in one box, 2.5 in another, up to 4.5″ with strips. Easy to pull out and sew together!

    Lila on March 26, 2018
  • Sorted by type then color – for eg., civil wars have their own bins and then subdivided into darks and backgrounds, and the same with the 30s, etc.

    However, once those bins are overflowed, I dig!

    —Deborah on March 26, 2018
  • I try to cut to the largest usable patch size and store organized in bins and drawers. Love scrap quilts. Can’t wait to try your patterns and learn from your tips. Thank you for sharing!!

    —Jan on March 26, 2018
  • I organize my scraps by color in Sterilite clear plastic bins. They stack easily in the closet out of direct sunlight and I can readily see what I’m searching for!

    —Maggie Nichols on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are organized by color in plastic shoeboxes. That way as I pick fabrics. Makes it easy to find the fabrics I want

    —Mickyy Robinson on March 26, 2018
  • I like to store scraps in bins. Sometimes I precut into specific sizes. I don’t tend to buy precuts, so some of my scraps are larger. Using your scrap prompts I am "I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such."

    —Laura M on March 26, 2018
  • I have some in plastic bins, but I have to say I’m not very organized at the moment.

    —Sheila Bales on March 26, 2018
  • Oh I try so hard to be an organized scrap goddess, but more often than not, my scraps resemble a squirrel trying to decide where to run in the middle othe road!

    —Deanne McLaughlin on March 26, 2018
  • I store mine by size and theme in bins.

    —Tammy on March 26, 2018
  • Well, first I have nice bins based on the colors of a box of 8 crayons: thus 8 bins, Then I have bins based on sets for a certain project and last I have three big bins of ‘anything goes’. I seriously need a helper for those three!

    —Kathy G on March 26, 2018
  • I love to organize and be organized, but alas, it only takes several projects being started and the bins are a mess again!

    —Rose on March 26, 2018
  • I have a large plastic bin for each color. The scraps are different sizes, some big enough for a baby quilt back most are smaller for piecing tops.
    I do need Lissa’s book for hints on combining colors – I have a bit of a problem with that. Looks like a wonderful book thanks for the chance to win !

    —Nancy C on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabrics mostly by both size and color. Strips, 2 1/2″, 5″, 10″, Fat quarters are stored separately in containers, bigger pieces on shelves by color and yardage on bolts, tiny scraps in bins not color coordinated just neatly stacked.

    —mary on March 26, 2018
  • In clear plastic bins so I can see what’s in there! I sort by color. Not very organized by size.

    —Kris Busch on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are stored by size. Anything larger than 6″ square goes in clear boxes by color. Anything smaller gets squared up and stacked by size in a shallow box, ready to be sewn into a scrappy something.

    —Vickie Morgan on March 26, 2018
  • I have bins, boxes and tubs and some in storage. In the bins I have them in drawers using Bonnie Hunter’s scrap user system! A great start. Have some scraps (not cut up) in zip lock bags by color and stored in a tub.I have several tubs in storage with scraps. I have some large zip lock storage bags with scraps in the closet. Need to get busy and get my UFO finished so I can make a scrap quilt!

    —LoAnn Trowbridge on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps by color in IKEA basket units and Container Store basket units. They are wire baskets that let me see the colors through. There are 3 baskets per unit and I have them stacked 2 deep. I have 4 of these stacked units. It’s great.

    —Linda DiVall on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in clear plastic shoeboxes, organized by color.

    —Jennifer M on March 26, 2018
  • Oh wow!! I am sure you are a lot more organized than I am, but I use clear tubs to store my fabrics by color. If I just shelved them, oh what a mess!! I am so good at pulling out pieces, but not so good at returning them, so tubs work great. I buy mostly fat qtrs, precursor as I absolutely love scrap quilts!

    —Ronna Hammel on March 26, 2018
  • I have a long row of 80oz recycled pickle jars along the floor under my design wall in my studio. There’s one jar for each colour. When the jar gets to full, I sew. My favourite part is when my kids or their friends come to visit and play with the scraps. Their designs are great inspiration!

    —Nyla-Jean on March 26, 2018
  • Bins are definitely my friends – I love them..I have dozens of them. I divide them first by colorways – lights and brights versus darks. Then by size– big scraps, like 10 x 10″ pieces and bigger gone into one bin and the smaller pieces go in others…and yes, I have bins stacked every which way, because I’m also a fabric hoarder. I have finally convinced myself, however, that i do not need to save every tiny little scrap!!!

    —Geri on March 26, 2018
  • I totally agree with the fact that is all about collors (first time I heard that from a professional, and matches with my ideas). About my scraps : " Organized? Not so much – I just go digging!"

    —Cristina M T Scarfon on March 26, 2018
  • I store fabric in bins,boxes,closets and rooms! Love the look of this new book!

    —Marilynn on March 26, 2018

  • I try to keep my scraps organized in clear plastic shoe boxes, but you know how it goes….the best made plans…..lol

    —INA ANDERSON on March 26, 2018
  • I have plastic tubs of strips, plastic tubs of pieces sorted by color. What I didn’t have was inspiration to use these scraps. Until now!

    —Brenda C on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in a big jute basket in color bundles in bags. Every few weeks I pick a bag and cut all the fabric in it into the sizes for the boxes they will go into. I start with the largest size 10 x 10, or if I can 2 1/2 strips, then it goes down from there the last size being 1 1/2 x 1 1/2. I have made one scrappy queen sized quilt for my SIL with controlled colors and white and I’m currently making my second quilt, king size with 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 blocks and a lovely white with grey for the secondary main color. This one is controlled by not having black, brown, etc. in the mix. So far, I’m happy with the results. Love the book and fabric selection. I never thought I’d be a scrappy quilt maker but here I am. I love it as it is so freeing!

    —Jami Price on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by color and stored in drawers and I just go digging when I’m ready to start a project.

    —Jan Horn on March 26, 2018
  • When I moved into my current house we put up shelves in my sewing room closet. Perfect for about a year and a half. Now I’ve added clear storage boxes, bags, the floor…guess I need a bigger house with a bigger sewing room! LOL

    —Debi Wahl on March 26, 2018
  • I store scraps, sorted by color, in a couple of plastic rolling carts with drawers. It’s easy to pull out a drawer and dig for scraps but they are getting too full so I need to start using them up.

    Anne Deister on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are organized by size in clear boxes and ziploc bags. EXCEPT for my fat quarters! They are arranged by color on open shelving so I can see them all the time!!

    —Jane on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric in see through bins

    —Yvonne Bullard on March 26, 2018
  • My fabric is in bins and on shelves. As the pieces get smaller they go into bins based on size: chunks, strips, squares. And there is even a bin for strings. If I have a lot of one color, or a project using one or two colors the first thing I do is sort by color and size. From then on I have a scrap color bin!

    —Neena on March 26, 2018
  • I store them in plastic shoe boxes according to size

    —Charyl Anderson on March 26, 2018
  • I try to keep them organized, but it seems with all the boxes and bins,there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to it all.

    —Linda Brennan on March 26, 2018
  • I love scrap quilts! I can’t imagine making a quilt with just a few fabrics! I store my scraps in bins by color.

    —Mary Burnett on March 26, 2018
  • In organized bins—some of them! LOL Others all over the place!

    —LoAnn Trowbridge on March 26, 2018
  • I’m working hard to organize my scraps, but it’s a work in process!

    —Mary Beth McKelvey on March 26, 2018
  • I start out with such good intentions putting like colors in bins and cutting scraps down into usable sizes and putting in bins. Then I go shopping in my bins and everything gets mixed up.

    —Becky /thomason on March 26, 2018
  • I just go digging!

  • The scraps …. well those I have! Just need the time. Perhaps this book can help.

    —Linda on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much;-)

    —Hildy on March 26, 2018
  • Anything large enough to fold and wrap around my large ruler is placed neatly in a cabinet according to color. But the smaller scraps are smashed horribly into bins that explode each time I try to get something out. It’s embarrassing!

    —Libby on March 26, 2018
  • Strings have their own big box with dividers, small scraps a large tub, and leftover groups or groupings for projects either small boxes or large Ziploc bags.

    —Sally on March 26, 2018
  • I group scraps by color in bins!

    —ali on March 26, 2018
  • “I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such.” This definitely applies to me, and after I cut any scraps I may have into strips or squares of a few specific sizes, I separate them by size and color. Now I just need to make something! I think “Oh, Scrap” would be a big help tp get me motivated…

    —Margaret Lawrence on March 26, 2018
  • Well, I try to be organized like #1. My scraps are in drawers according to color then when I feel moved upon, I cut them into strips and store them in plastic bags in larger drawers. Of course there is that large plastic bin that I throw everything in when I don’t have time or energy to sort. When it gets overflowing then the better organization kicks in. Love this book and really enjoyed the blog hop. Love Lissa too. Thanks for all the great books you publish and the encouragement you give to quilters like me.

    —Mom C on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in drawers in a spare bedroom. They are mostly sorted by color. I also have some scraps that are sized and stored in plastic containers. The colors and patterns in Oh Scraps are so inviting and fresh looking!

    —Judy Stamm on March 26, 2018
  • I have an overflowing disorganized wicker trunk of scraps!

    —Kathy Retherford on March 26, 2018
  • I love the look of scrap quilts. My scraps are not organized and I do have to go through bins and drawers when I get ready to make a quilt. I had good intentions a while back but then things got out of hand.

    —Pat D on March 26, 2018
  • I organize my scraps by color and store them in a set of stacking plastic drawers.

    —Deb on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by size, until there are enough scraps to sort by color.

    —Tricia Hoffmann on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in bins, loosely organized by color. I would love to win this book as I could use some help deciding how to combine fabrics.
    Thanks for the chance at this great giveaway.

    —Diantha Howard on March 26, 2018
  • I use organized bins

    —Kathy Luehrs on March 26, 2018
  • In shoe box sized plastic bins, by color.

    —Dixie on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such. I started organizing, bins with colors, plastic shoeboxes with coordinated stuff. But I keep finding odd stashes, and of course can’t resist the remnant shelves at fabric stores. Sigh! Love her color choices in scraps, and that they are light and airy and don’t come off as dark and cluttered as some scrap quilts seem to look. I’m cleaning out my book stash too, but maybe I need to add this one…

    —Sharon Schipper on March 26, 2018
  • I usually make scrap quilts. I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such to store my fabric. Yardage is stored on a bookshelf or in a chest. Pieces smaller than a yard are in plastic bins and boxes mostly separated by color. And tiny, under 3″ pieces are kept in their own shoebox which is currently overflowing! Time to make a small scrappy quilt!

    —Lori S on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in boxes and bins but not at all organized! Part of the fun is digging thru the scraps to find the perfect or even random pieces!

    —Rilla Burnham on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by strip, shapes,and coordinating waste bits from other quilts. Boxes, baskets, bins, drawers,and whatever is handy give me the illusion of control over my hoarding!:)

    —Lou on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins by color and favorite fabric designers get their own bins. And there is a bin for scraps and not so lovely yardage.

    —Chris on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric in bins, boxes, banker boxes, shelves, and anywhere I can find space. I try to organize, but it just doesn’t fit my personality. I so much enjoy the discovery of a box I haven’t opened in ages!

    —Rosemary on March 26, 2018
  • I have been on the scrap band wagon for about a year. I recently took a class and organize my scraps by size, 1.5 inch, 2 inch, 2.5 inch, 3.5 inch and keep all my neutrals separate.

    Works well and my sewing room is not as overwhelming.

  • For larger than 1/4 yard, I store on hangers in a closet. My daughter calls this closet “the fabric store.” Smaller pieces are cut into strips and squares of various sizes. These are stored in bins by size.

    —Becky Hooper on March 26, 2018
  • I "try" to keep them organized. I have little bins for various sized squares and rectangles, and I keep strips in a set of plastic drawers. But the scraps from the latest project don’t always end up in the correct bin right away, so I usually have semi-organized chaos!

    Barbara Johnson on March 26, 2018
  • There are giveaways plastered all over Instagram and Facebook for this book
    and I have signed up for them all, and I love the title of this book? Organized? Not
    so much…..some things in bins, but most in large bags that I dig through.

    —Fran Bianchi on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in an old armoire that has extra shelves…and on my sewing table and chairs and floor.

    —Marcia P. on March 26, 2018
  • I have some scraps organized by size, some by color and others just in bins. Lots of scraps!

    —MAUREEN on March 26, 2018
  • I am slowly organizing my scraps into bins and on shelving. It is a big undertaking but I am sure it will be worth it in the end.

    —Patricia Heffel on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such.

    —Susan on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are larger pieces. I usually buy fats or half yard pieces for applique, and only use a little bit for a project. I fold the tiny pieces up with the bigger part of the fabric, either to fit on a shelf or in a plastic bin or drawer, by color.

    —Janet T on March 26, 2018
  • i love scrap quilts!! I keep my scraps in a basket..just dig when i need to… seeing stuff hap hazard is half the fun! 😉

    —Barbara on March 26, 2018

    —Karen Johnson on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins. Some designers have their own!

    —Jen Belnap on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in organized shoebox sized containers. My Mom graciously cuts them for me in strips and squares.

    —Sara Tjosaas on March 26, 2018
  • Love the colours in all the quilts! I thought I had a system of boxes ready to organize scraps – only thing wrong with the system was me – you do have to cut the fabric into those sizes, before the ‘system’ works. Mostly they (the scraps) are all in a big bucket waiting for me to organize them!!

    —Judys on March 26, 2018
  • I store mine in bins, organized by color.

    —NancyB on March 26, 2018
  • Scraps in clear plastic bags-usually by collection but I also have a huge zipped laundry bag of shirt pieces,literally fronts, backs and sleeves after making a couple of stripy quilts!

    —Judy Berry on March 26, 2018
  • Well I started out with scraps color coordinated but then acquired so many scraps they are now in large plastic bins and bags…very unorganized. I must do something about that soon…when I have time….maybe.

    —Jackie Wisherd on March 26, 2018
  • Bins, shelves and closets….. I have way too many scraps. I see many scrap quilts in my future. This book would help!😊

    —Sheri Bennett on March 26, 2018
  • I dream of being organized…but it hasn’t happened yet. Too busy making quilts. One of these days…

    —Debby on March 26, 2018
  • Clear plastic boxes, bags, and shelves are all present and in use, but then there are the "piles" I plan to sew with next. It always seems the harder I try to organize, the bigger the mess! It doesn’t matter much, though, because fabric makes me happy!

    —Brenda Mc on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by color in bins, and those are in a huge stand-alone shelving closet in my garage. I also cut the smaller scraps into squares and those I put by size in those flat cardboard boxes discarded by Costco.

    —Julie in WA on March 26, 2018
  • Scrap quilts are my favorite! I store my strips, 5″ and 10″ squares in containers by size. All other scraps (fat quarter and smaller) are stored in bins by color. Anything larger is stored on my shelves.

    —Kim H on March 26, 2018
  • I organize my scraps in photo boxes with the end of each box labeled with the scrap size found inside. I love to sew with scraps as well as enjoy quilts made with scraps! Thank you for all of your scrappy inspiration!

    —Lana Stewart on March 26, 2018
  • Most of my quilts are scrap quilts and I love them. I store my large scraps folded in boxes and drawers and decorative containers around the house. Small scraps and strips go into a basket so they are handy. I love this book "Oh Scrap", besides the adorable name, Lissa has designed my kind of quilts.
    Good luck on your book Lissa,
    Happy Quilting

    —Marva Daley on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric in clear shoe boxes, larger cleard boxes, shelves for larger pieces and some waiting to be sorted. I love making quilts and want to start making more scrappy quilts. The book looks fantastic for that. I hope to start using up my scraps more in the near future.

    —Sharilyn Watson on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are loosely organized…3 bins. One for lights, one for mediums and one for darks. Then from there, it’s just dig in and play! I’d love to have the "Oh Scrap" book with some new scraps to play with too!

    —Leslie Hoff on March 26, 2018
  • I use clear plastic bins. Smaller scraps sorted by color are stored in 2 gallon zip lock bags within a larger bin. By the way, the Kismet pattern is one of my favorites.

    —carolyn barrows on March 26, 2018
  • I don’t store scraps in precut sizes, because I don’t know what sizes or shapes I may need. They are mostly stored in baskets by lights and darks.

    —Sharon on March 26, 2018
  • I am a relatively new quilter and used to store my scraps just mixed together but now store them, and my fabrics (unless they’re precuts from the same fabric line) by color. It makes it so much easier! Congratulations on the new book! It looks gorgeous!

    —Paula C on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in clear plastic organizers that are shoe box size. Larger pieces go in a bigger plastic container for using later.

    —Celia Ambrose on March 26, 2018
  • Love scraps! They are stored in a huge box, with no rhyme or reason. Just
    pull out and sew!

    —June on March 26, 2018
  • I have been quilting since the ’70s but only started making scrap quilts in the last 7-8 years – mostly for charity. I store my scraps in various boxes but not in a very organized way. I do hang long strips up on hangers, though. Scrap quilts have become my favorites because I think they are much more interesting to look at.

    —Nancy on March 26, 2018
  • My fat quarters are stored in Rubbermaid drawers, larger pieces in storage totes by color and smaller pieces in baskets on shelves based on size.

    —Lisa Marie on March 26, 2018
  • I have 2 carts w/6 drawers each that I store one color per drawer. I do save all scraps 1″ or larger. This does make it easier if I’m looking for a red or a blue. I just pull those drawers out and look thru the scraps.

    —Jody Randall on March 26, 2018
  • Organized – What is that ???? My goal is clear small tubes to sort fabric but time will tell.

    —Audrey on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in drawers in an old secretary that I inherited when my grandmother died. The drawers are perfect for strips!

    —Connie Mounsey on March 26, 2018
  • I keep pre-cut squares and triangles in a bin, and scrap strips are sorted by color and size in drawers.
    I would love to win this fabulous book!

    —Julie in GA on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in totes, only because I moved to a smaller house and lost all the sweet organized shelving I had. Digging is fun though.

    —JanetD on March 26, 2018
  • My smallest scraps are stored in bins and larger pieces are on shelves. I love scrappy quilts, but rarely make them. I guess that’s why my scraps keep growing so fast! I obviously need this book!

    —Lori on March 26, 2018
  • I started saving scraps in bins by size but the ‘wheels have come off the bus’ and now I seem to be drowning in bags and assorted piles of random scraps. 😱 Time to get those scrap quilts made!

    —Marie on March 26, 2018
  • I store scraps in gallon zip lock bags both by color and by fabric groups. I try to fold them neatly so that the colors are easily visible when I’m looking or an inspiration. The bags stack on their edge or flat on my bookshelves and closet shelves. I also use some plastic boxes but prefer the zip lock bags for ease of perusing my stash!

    The zip locks also keep the dust off. I got worried about storing fabric in air tight plastic bags so am now also notching bag corners so the fabrics can breathe.

    —Linda Carthen on March 26, 2018
  • I use clear shoe boxes with lids, large plastic salad containers (grocery store) with lids and open shelving.

    —Kathy Hopkins on March 26, 2018
  • I have some bins and baskets for my scraps, but I just can’t use them up fast enough! Scrap quilts are my very FAVORITE kind of quilt and Lissa’s new book looks WONDERFUL … Congrats!!

    —TXAggie79 on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric scraps in two gallon plastic jars. They formerly housed pretzel sticks! Each jar is filled by color and stored in a rainbow row on top of my antique wardrobe.

    —Jackie P on March 26, 2018
  • My fabric is in bins, drawers, organizers, closets, bags, and boxes. Tried sorting by color and it sorta works; bins not big enough. I know where most items are, but get surprises, and, am left wondering where is such and such, every once in awhile. Ah, such is the life of a scrappy quilter!

    —Pamela Wright on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric in clear tubs, mostly by projects and holidays. After I finish, that’s when the trouble begins. I end up putting them in a pile because I don’t have a system. Lissa’s book gives me a whole new perspective; I need to think in colors. I never thought I’d liked sewing “scrappy” but she has so many beautiful ideas I need to give it a try.

    —Christine Hedensten on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabrics by designers mostly and in big plastic containers that are clear. I just retired and now hope to be able to use many of these lines I have been collecting for years.

    —Leota Krantz on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps that have been cut to different sizes in drawers that have been labeled with the size on each drawer front. I would love to use up some of these scraps and some beautiful quilts.

    —Joanne L Wilson on March 26, 2018
  • I store them in a bin according to color. Thank you

    —beth shepherd on March 26, 2018
  • I have scraps in bins by color and then there are all the boxes, bags, and piles that haven’t been put away yet.

    —Carol M on March 26, 2018
  • I store them by color in plastic bins. I do not precut them because I don’t want to limit the quilt they can be used in.

    —Connie on March 26, 2018
  • I organize by type, square, triangle, etc. Then by size

    —Ann Eldridge on March 26, 2018
  • I use plastic bins and plastic ziplock baggies. If you sit on the baggie, and you’ve got a big backside like me, you can squish out most of the air and seal it while you are sitting. This gives me more room to store in the bins. I also use boxes. I am not as organized as I would like to be, as it is a work in progress. I do love playing with the fabrics. Life is good.

    —Tina Sheppard on March 26, 2018
  • I mostly store my scrap fabric in shoe box sized plastic bins sorted by color. Love the book. Thanks for the draw.

    —Edith Gorzo on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are mostly sorted by color in plastic bins but a have a ufo scrap projects tub too

    —Sarah C on March 26, 2018
  • The organized stash was great until I went digging. Then I didn’t reorganize and went digging etc. Scraps are in my basement and my sewing room. Organized? Nope!

    —Marsha Nelson on March 26, 2018
  • I sort by size – trim up scraps into various sizes (yardage, fat quarter, fat eighth, layer cakes, jelly bar, jelly rolls, and squares of a variety of sizes), each in their own box. Took 6 months to do the initial sort and now I do it after I have bound the quilt (so I don’t cut up something I might need for the binding)!

    —Elsa Neubauer on March 26, 2018
  • I LOVE scrap quilts! My scraps are stored in plastic ice cream containers, baskets, shoe boxes, IKEA boxes and anything else that fits nicely on my shelf. I put a sticky note on the end so I know what sizes or types of fabric are stored inside. My system is always evolving and someday I would love to have everything matching in size and color but for now the frugalness of these containers works for me……someday maybe I will cover my boxes in wrapping paper so they match! I would love to win this book as it inspires me to get out those scraps and sew away!

    —Jeanne on March 26, 2018
  • All my scraps are in two clear plastic bins. Both bins are full so I need to get some more bins and organize by color!

    —Medford Art-Larrew on March 26, 2018
  • I store all my scraps in see thru containers. They’re all on a shelf in my spare bedroom. I can open the door and pull out the bins I want, organized by color.

    —Virginia Kopfinger on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are organized in tubs, totes, and on shelves. Most projects are in totes and I as I finish each, I’m working to get scraps more organized as I go. Right now it’s not by color but more by the next project I have in mind.

    —Ruth Hurst on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in clear plastic bins. Some are organized by colors, other are just "thrown in" to be cut up and sorted later.

    —Judy W. on March 26, 2018
  • Sort of in bins, grouped by color. Mostly!

    —Eve Bennett on March 26, 2018
  • Hi! I love Lissa’s book, can’t wait to start my own version of her quilts! I keep my scraps in a large bin, sorted by color in clear storage bags, whether a hst piece or a short fat eighth. That seems to work for me so far!

    —Anne Kirby on March 26, 2018
  • Organized scraps? Now that is a novel thought. My scrappy quilts are a hot mess because there is no organization beyond a large laundry basket full of all the bits and pieces.

    —Laura on March 26, 2018
  • Well…I just started several shoe boxes by color, but they are filling up fast!?

    Lynn on March 26, 2018
  • What wonderful patterns! I believe I could make every quilt in the book and not make a dent in my scraps.

    —Nancy Kores on March 26, 2018
  • I organize by fabric by type (flannel, homespuns, baby, seasonal, etc) in totes/bins and baskets. Future projects are stored in smaller bins.

    —Kathleen McQuiggin on March 26, 2018
  • I’m storing my scraps in organized bins, in different sizes.

    —Sylke on March 26, 2018
  • I sort my scraps by colour in bins. I would love to win this book so I could use them up and make room for more!

    —Joyce Wilson on March 26, 2018
  • Organized only by general colors and then just put in plastic bags in a basket. I keep thinkin that someday I will organize and cut and neatly put away. That day has not yet come.

    —Jan on March 26, 2018
  • Organized???? A little bit but I still go digging in the bins for a specific fabric that I know I have somewhere! As I look for this elusive piece of cloth I am trying to sort by color as I go through the bin to make it easier next time.

    —Linda B on March 26, 2018
  • I cut remnants into squares of varying sizes depending on the remnant, then store them in containers sorted by size and stack them up in my fabric closet. I’ve been thinking I need to replace them with office storage boxes to best utilize my space and sort by colours not sizes. It’s amazing how fast the scrap pile has grown!

    —Diane N. on March 26, 2018
  • Organized, not so much–I just go digging! But I’m hopeful to have organization one of these days! Thanks for a chance to win (-:

    —Linda M on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps by color in zip top bags. Not the best solution, but it‘s working for now. Beautiful book!

    —Karen W on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are stored in bins, boxes, shelves and drawers.
    Your book is exactly what is needed to help with organization and to inspire usage of so many scraps.

    Joyce on March 26, 2018
  • I’ve noticed recently that I’m digging through every shelf to find specific fabrics so I’m obviously in need of some organization. I do throw tiny scraps into tall, clear pretzel containers and use them to make little projects like log cabin pincushions.

    Jane @ Handiworking on March 26, 2018
  • My boxes are in confusion, but I love scraps. Daniela

    —daniela on March 26, 2018
  • I love scrap quilts but definitely need help in organization. What was my craft room is called the crap room by my family. No one is allowed in it but me.

    —Ann Rose on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps in color bins like Lissa.

    —Trudy A on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabrics by colour in clear plastic containers. I keep the scraps from any of these materials in ziplocks in the same colour container.

    —Marina Maund on March 26, 2018
  • I keep all my scraps in a cupboard that I purchased for my sewing room. I try to keep them organized by color, but that doesn’t always work!

    —Linda Hippen on March 26, 2018
  • I would love to win the giveaway but regardless of whether I win or buy my book, I can’t wait to read it. Just the tips throughout the blog hop have given me food for thought. As far as how I store my scraps… ahem… let’s just say I need to get organized!

    —Siobhan on March 26, 2018
  • I don’t have scraps (like left over pieces of fabric from projects)but I have lots of bundles of a fabric line i.e. fat quarters, jelly rolls,cakes, and often the matching fabric for the backing. I don’t know if they are considered scraps but I know I have a lot of them. I want to use them and perhaps your book would get me started. The quilts in your book look fabulous. Thanks for a chance to win.
    Take care.

    —Lynn Darcy on March 26, 2018
  • I organize in bins like Lissa! Thank you!

    —Lee on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scrap strips in shoeboxes, and my other scraps in two laundry baskets, one for repro fabrics and the other for everything else.

    —Elizabeth McDonald on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps sorted by color in ziplock bag. All bags are stored in a bin. It easier to grab a color bag than to sort through it all.

    —Betty Gracie on March 26, 2018
  • In plastic containers but not sorted it is a hodgepodge of scraps

    —Theresa on March 26, 2018
  • Organized, not so much, it I am working on a scrap pineapple quilt. Beautiful book and scraps too.

    —Rita S on March 26, 2018
  • I’m a beginner quilter, so I don’t have many scraps. But I know I’m going to be scrap quilter. Right now I keep my fabric in bins and shelving by color.

    —Harriet H. on March 26, 2018
  • I started out organizing in plastic shoe boxes by color of big prints and small prints and plaids and batiks, etc. etc. Somewhere along the line, it has gotten pretty confused, so there is much more hunting than I intended! Time to re-organize! I really like the looks of this book…think I would actually make several of the patterns. Thanks for showing them to me!

    —Eileen on March 26, 2018
  • I have a not so organized collection of bins, organized by color. I tend to keep the big & small pieces together. My bins are stacked together in a room. Marie Cleverdon

    —Marie Cleverdon on March 26, 2018
  • I am trying to get all my scraps organized into bins by size. I have taken pieces and trimmed either into strips 3/4” right up to 4”, squares, rectangles are also cut. Also a bin of orphan blocks, Hst’s and odd pieces section or stratus.

    —Cathy Cameron on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are kept by dominate hue in clear totes and also as mixed colors within divided containers that have been cut into 1″, 1.5″ and 2.5″ squares or rectangles. When a container is full, it is time for scrappy and improvisational sewing!

    —Marty on March 26, 2018
  • I store scrap s in boxes by color

    Bunny Hand on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much—I just go digging… but I really try 😉 Thanks for the giveaway

    —Anne on March 26, 2018
  • I store them in bins or bags or whatever is handy.

    —Linda on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in plastic bins. I organize by color and type. For example 1930’s and southwest.

    —Margaret Dalmer on March 26, 2018
  • Currently, overflowing bins. Need to organize then find time to use them. Great inspiration in the book. Thanks.

    —Maryellen on March 26, 2018
  • I haven’t, but beginning to believe that I should begin doing so when I see what can be done with them.

    —Gail on March 26, 2018
  • I use small bins on shelves for the smaller scraps, organized by size. Wire drawers in a rack from Ikea works well for the larger scraps and fat quarters, organized by color. Now if I could just keep my cutting and sewing space clear I’d be in great shape!

    —Nancy McFall on March 26, 2018
  • So many scraps…so little time
    What an inspiring collection of quilts

    —Sarah Silk on March 26, 2018
  • I use comic book cards and wrap the fabric on them then store on shelves so I can see the rainbow of colors. I sort by solids, batiks and color.
    I also put fat quarters on upper two shelves of ikea dvd shelves and half yards on the next two shelves. I love love love, MODA fabrics!!!

    —Lisa Huckins on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much—I just go digging! My plan is to get organized soon. I spend too much time looking for fabric!!

    —Mona Phelps on March 26, 2018
  • Scrap fabrics . . . Oh too many!!! I try to stay organized and store them in plastic tubs, but that doesn’t always happen. An even better goal is to sew with them and make something useful ASASP!

    —Barbara on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scrap fabrics in different baskets.

    —Francie Holt on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much—I just go digging! I put some scraps in old ice cream buckets and search through them when I need some scraps. No matter how hard I try to organize I still end up with a bunch of different sized and colored scraps all mixed together!

    —Nicole Sender on March 26, 2018
  • I use organized bins and boxes to store my scraps for future projects. Thank you for the opportunity to win such nice fabrics and books.

    —Pam on March 26, 2018
  • How I organize my scraps-in bins, but just recently they were organized by color with in the bins. What a Hugh undertaking, but what a great feeling when it was completed. Love all the colors in the book of “Oh, Scrap”!

    —Barbara Niekerk on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps in 2 bins, one for large pieces and one for the smaller rectangles, squares and triangles.

    —Cheryl Moser on March 26, 2018
  • Clear plastic bins – one for strips, one for large rectangles (at least 3″ in width), one for small rectangles, one for everything else

    —Pam on March 26, 2018
  • I have a brown paper bag by my sewing machine that I toss my scraps in, then move them to a bin when it’s full! This book looks wonderful!

    —Pam on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps organized by colors in rolling plastic drawer units. Not neat & tidy, just thrown in a jumble.

    —Faye on March 26, 2018
  • I organize my scraps by color in drawers and baskets. Enjoyed the book Tour very much, my favorite Izzy Squared, it’s a happy quilt!!!

    —Renata Blas on March 26, 2018
  • I don’t have a lot of scraps but I keep them in 3 bins – all square scraps (2″-5″), strips, and then random scraps. I also keep all of my selvages in their own bin … if you want to consider them scraps!

    —paige on March 26, 2018
  • Bins, for the most part. Most days. ha ha ha

    —Diana O on March 26, 2018
  • Mine are not very organized as I like a serendipitous process to pull out scraps for my quilts. Thanks for the great suggestions.

    —Regina Harris on March 26, 2018
  • I start out all organized with different size strips in different labeled boxes, end up tossing the rest together in a big box with no rhyme or reason!

    —Wanda Brothers on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps in bins organized by color!
    I can’t wait to dig into them to make some of these beautiful scrappy quilts!

    TerrieG on March 26, 2018
  • I store all my scraps smaller than a quarter yard in big plastic bins. To tell the truth, I just finished doing that after 3 or 4 years of just letting them pile up. What a job! BUT, not as bad as if I had NEVER done it at all!

    —Barbara Duval on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in plastic boxes, shelves, and baskets by type cotton, fleece etc

    Roxanne Tamaru on March 26, 2018
  • Mine are sorted by size until they get roughly fat eighth or larger then it’s by color.

    —Patty on March 26, 2018
  • I have just recently started to organize scraps into bins, and it seems to be working very well!

    —Deb Augustine on March 26, 2018
  • I’ve organized in bins, plastic bags in drawers by size and color.

    —Linda Pickenpaugh on March 26, 2018
  • Most of my fabric is scraps! I’ve been known to dive into friends’ waste baskets to retrieve a "perfectly usable piece of fabric"! I organize by color in plastic bins and actually enjoy going through each bin periodically to check on my stash.

    —Elizabeth Snead on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much! I could use help organizing my scraps and ideas on how to use them up.

    —Chris on March 26, 2018
  • I organize my scraps by color in shoe boxes.

    —Esther Grimes on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins to "organize" my fabric. The bins are stored on Ikea shelves.

    —Anne Allen on March 26, 2018
  • I store in see-through bins. By color and size.

    —Toni K Harper on March 26, 2018
  • I used to just have ziploc baggies (large ones) filled with every scrap I have. Three years ago my 85 yr old mother, who has memory issues moving into Alzheimer’s, moved in with me, and always needs to keep busy. It is part of the disease to want to keep reorganizing. I gave her 20 or so shoe bins and my scrap bags. She put them into bins by color. It makes it easier to find what I want. They are not cut nicely or a specific size, just thrown in bins. But it makes her happy to see she’s accomplished something.

    —Nancy Bart on March 26, 2018
  • I am semi organized with bins of scraps, but also have them scattered in with colors.

    —Kathy O on March 26, 2018
  • I have an ikea basket rack system that I use to store my scraps. Anything under a fat quarter goes in a basket. One basket for each color. At least that is the plan. If I am in a hurry all the scraps get shoved in a big bin to be sorted later.

    —Four dogs and one quilter on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins in my closet and it’s not at all organized!

    —Tara coventree on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are stored in bins in the order that I throw them in,which is no order whatsoever! Maybe that will be lucky!

    —Beth Esser on March 26, 2018
  • Wow, what a giveaway! I have my scraps in various bins, mostly sorted by color.

    —Becky on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in 31 totes and on shelves in the closet.

    Sherry Casto on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and boxes and closets and shelves–as well as the guest bed, spare chairs, and occasionally the top of the dryer!

    Mary Kitchens on March 26, 2018
  • I have clear plastic bins that I got at the dollar store. They are sorted by color but are just scraps. Nothing larger than 10”, not trimmed. I also have a large tote that I’ll get to, one of these years, lol. I think the scraps are making more scraps when I’m not looking. Although I do use them, they never seem to go down.

    —Deborah on March 26, 2018
  • I use large plastic bags to separate my scraps by color. I go through them constantly to check what I have. No matter how many quilts I make, the scraps never seem to decrease.

    —Sandy May on March 26, 2018
  • I store my miscellaneous scraps In bins by strips and crumbs. Then in other bins by size of strip, 1.5”, 2.5”, etc

    —Dana on March 26, 2018
  • I have all my fabrics in plastic bins arranged by color or, sometimes, theme. Looking forward to see the book.

    —Terrie on March 26, 2018
  • Store my scraps? "Honey … if you’re missing me at dinner I’m in my sewing room with a shovel sorting my scraps!!" LOL

    —Linda H on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are "mostly" organized in bins, but there are also boxes, cubby holes and drawers. Yes, I NEED this book. LOL

    —Kathy L on March 26, 2018
  • I started out organizing my fabric stash in colorful baskets in an old hutch. Now it’s just stacked on the shelves for me to dig through

    —Leanne Newman on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and boxes. I have a scrap problem

    —Lynnette Lamance on March 26, 2018
  • Digging. The fabric is everywhere. I really should get organized some day….

    —Marilyn Rose on March 26, 2018
  • In the beginning… I saved scraps good, bad and ugly that went into a box. Then, I started to be more selective in saving the scraps by color, size, and time frame. Labeled shoe boxes serve as my storage although recently I have been using clear plastic ones.
    When I "watch" tv next to my husband, I pair triangles and used them as leader and enders and they go into a bin to sort later for a scrappy quilt or just to use as corner stone in a quilt.
    Scraps, scraps, and more scraps they multiply exponentially with every quilt made.

  • Bins and boxes. Lots of them!!

    —Denise Kirk on March 26, 2018
  • I use wire bins for folded fat quarters and similar sized scraps.Those are organized. I also have bins for irregular-sized scraps which are thrown in with the hopes of someday cutting to a uniform size. Did I say "hope"?!

    —Linda A. Wellman on March 26, 2018
  • I try to keep my sewing space picked up so after I cut pieces for a quilt/table runner I cut the smaller scraps into 2 1/2″ squares, 3 1/2″ squares and 2 1/2″ strips…I store them in baggies so I can go to them when I need a piece. It was a savings grace when I was making a "calendar" from scraps designed with a theme of each month…I was so happy to have had these bags of scraps so will welcome a win with these fabrics and the book. Thanks for the chance to win….

    —Barbara Dolan on March 26, 2018
  • not organized at all yikes

    carole sherman on March 26, 2018
  • I don’t have a very good system for organizing scraps and serious scrap savers would probably have a field day in my waste baskets. The book sounds great to help with organizing and using the scraps

    —Betty T. on March 26, 2018
  • I have all my scraps in bins and the fabric is stored on shelves. I just love scraps. Thanks for the great book and a chance to win.

    —LeAnn R on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are organized in bins, like Lissa. They all fit in 4 shoe box size see-thru containers by color.

    —Karen on March 26, 2018
  • Adorable

    —Stephanie Martinez on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bin. and if they are cut in deliver container according tonsize.

    —Stephanie Martinez on March 26, 2018
  • I have boxes and bins and anything else that looks like it would help me stay organized–I try, but it goes awry when I start looking for that one perfect scrap

    —Penny on March 26, 2018
  • I put my scraps into baskets sorted by color, one color per basket. Anything smaller than a FQ is in a scrap basket, but I don’t cut anything to a particular size. Then when I want to make a scrap quilt, I decide on the colors I want to use and pull my baskets out.

    —Sandy S on March 26, 2018
  • I use IKEA bins to sort scrap pieces of all sizes by colour. Lissa’s quilts are amazing – and thank you for the chance to enter your contest. 😊

    —Carmen Martens on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by size (strips, squares, etc) I have way to many containers. 😁

    —Karen on March 26, 2018
  • I took a workshop on scrappy quilts, and changed my organization method. Now I put on a pair of those red glasses, and sort by value! That way I don’t get hung up wondering whether a print reads as one color or another, and the results are really fun. I use bags for each value (light/medium/dark).

    —Cyndi Ferguson on March 26, 2018
  • Definitely NOT organized though I do dream of being so someday!

    —Karen Kopp on March 26, 2018
  • I keep scraps too small to fold in a drawer by color, unless it’s retangular in shape. Those go into a bin sorted by smaller than 7” or 7”. ( string quilts). I can not make myself throw them away!

    —Sara Brock on March 26, 2018
  • i store my scrap fabrics in wire baskets and in small rectangular cubes that allows me to layout 2.5 strips flat.

    —Lara B on March 26, 2018
  • Definitely organized in bins by color and size.

    —Kim Brownell on March 26, 2018
  • I dream of having my scraps organized by size and color, but they are currently stored in a large clear bag. They are “sorted” in large handfuls of color, so that I can “dig in” and pull out what I need. The clear bag helps to find the right handful of scraps. 🙂

    —Shannon on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps in boxes. Organized by size but I wish it was by colour. One of these days I’ll get that done….😉

  • Closets, shelves, bins, boxes, bags, piles, heaps…anything to keep organized. Makes life easier. I jump from 1 project to the other depending on my mood and whether or not I’m traveling. Lots of ongoing quilting projects at one time. Sooner or later they all get finished! Love the quilts and your color combinations. Great giveaway. Thanks!

    —Amy Cofer on March 26, 2018
  • My small scraps are organized in bins (I like to add touches of applique to my quilts so I save even odd little pieces) the fat quarters are in drawers by color and the larger yardage is here and there in boxes. O.f all the books on scraps I’ve seen this one is the one I find the most helpful and informative probably because I like to use a defined color palette to give more dimension to a pattern than just random scraps and I love to mix as many lines of fabrics as I can!

    —Lori on March 26, 2018
  • I store my stash by color in drawers. I have a drawer where I keep my scraps until I cut and sort them by size and color into plastic containers. That drawer is usually stuffed before I get organized!!!

    —Cathy G on March 26, 2018
  • I am semi organized with fabric by color on shelves and bins in a closet.

    —Sharon on March 26, 2018
  • My scrap bins, 3 huge ones, are an unorganized mess, but a pretty mess! I would love to win the book and maybe tame some of the mess!

    —Betty Sylvia on March 26, 2018
  • I have scraps in bags and basically go digging when I need something. I am trying to organize by color. I have so many scraps! Would love to see new projects to work my way through them.

    —Vivian Lewis on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my fabrics and scraps sorted in two ways. All my favorite Moda Fabrics are in a special pie safe in my loft. Other fabric is sorted by color in an old set of lockers.

    —Tracie on March 26, 2018
  • unfortunately, my scraps live where they lie…piles and boxes.

    —Laura Wernet on March 26, 2018
  • closets, shelves, storage bins, etc. My scraps are loosely organized by color, but also some by theme– Christmas, baby, fall; It’s what I call an organized mess!!

    —Debra Reber on March 26, 2018
  • This book looks amazing! I am drowning in scraps and need all the help I can get to make sense of them.

    —Helen T on March 26, 2018
  • Plastic bins, mostly by color but others by type; for example, Civil War and Thirties repros. each have their own bins, as do Moda Marbles. I have a small bin for charms square packs and everything else is by color. Oh, and separate bins for Halloween, Christmas, other holidays, and fall fabrics that are NOT Halloween or Thanksgiving! Oh, and a couple bins and a zippered bag for precuts. Oh dear, really that many?!? Yikes!

    —Dottie Macomber on March 26, 2018
  • I have to admit that my scraps aren’t organized. They’re mixed up with other stuff that also needs sorting. When I need scraps (and all my quilts are very scrappy), I open charm packs and cut bits from larger pieces until I have dozens of fabrics and then sew them together. Some day I will organize but in the meantime I’ll just make quilts that I love out of hundreds of fabrics I’ve ‘collected’.

    —Carol C on March 26, 2018
  • Organized in small medium medium/large and….big copier paper empty boxes. I am a stripper and they food in quarters so well. You have a great story and have really got my kind if humor. “Oh Crap” fits a lot of quilting techniques I use…putting an “S” in front I can take myself more civilized Quilt group activities

    Great book to win indeed!!

    —MJ Modjeski on March 26, 2018
  • I have a hug Home Depot bag my 88 year old aunt game me! I just go digging. Oh, the treasure I find!!!!!!!

    Sue Gale on March 26, 2018
  • Well, if it’s a quilt from a collection I keep it in a bag with the rest of the collection. If it’s scrappy I keep them in a bag with that designers fab’s!! BTW- my daughter has picked 3 quilts from the book!! She wants the sherbet stars for her daughter- I have some time she’s not married yet- I may have a chance!!

    —Leigh Ann P on March 26, 2018
  • I really should proof read better. But it is a HUGE bag of a lifetime of sewing scraps from my 88 year old Aunt. I just dig in and find whatever fits that project!

    Sue Gale on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are all in a large basket!! All colors and sizes mixed in !!

    —Janan on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are organized by "shape and size" Strips are in one pile, chunks in another, small rectangles (5″ sq or less) in another. The colors are all together because if I am making a scrap quilt, I want to use all the colors. They are housed in a rolling cart with drawers.

    Gene Black on March 26, 2018
  • I usually store my scraps in bins or plastic drawers. I have them where I can look at them from time to time, and daydream what I will make from them. However I do not have mine sorted into certain colors. The jelly rolls, layer cakes, fat quarters each have their own drawers. Because they are new fabrics I tend to organize them better than my scraps.

    —Cynthia Fedak on March 26, 2018
  • In SEVERAL semi-organized plastic tubs in the closet.

    —Linda on March 26, 2018
  • I’ve still all my scraps from various quilts packed away separatly in boxes as if I would need to add pieces later!! Quite absurd, but I just can’t make myself cut into a scrap sistem without having a plan for a precise quilt. So I guess I’m not really a scrap quilter yet. With a growing stash I should get into the habit though.😄

    —Inger Martinson on March 26, 2018
  • Quart and gallon zip bags in plastic clear tubs

    —Donna JC on March 26, 2018
  • Organized…not so much

    —Karen Anderson on March 26, 2018
  • I have Ikea shelves and store by colour. I love being surrounded by all the fabrics as I tend to forget what I have if I dont see it.

    —Sharon Zisos on March 26, 2018
  • I have lots of containers containing scraps. Duh. They are mostly organized by when they were filled, but that makes them sort of organized by what project(s) I was working on. So if I’m looking for reds, l look for the container that has the scraps from the Husker star quilt I made. Ditto with blues. Am bound to have some coordinated scraps, since (I hope) my quilts were coordinated in the first place.

    —Brenda on March 26, 2018
  • My husband’s farm toy collection takes up most of the storage space in our house, so most of my quilt fabrics reside in the original packages in which they were wrapped at the fabric shop.

    —B J Kinney on March 26, 2018
  • I am not organized at all, but hope to be one day.

    —Tina McNamara on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps in a closet in small plastic boxes.

    —Mandy M on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps in plastic boxes. Sorted by colour

    —Lise Saur on March 26, 2018
  • Unfortunately, not too organized. Add that to my to do list.

    —Debbie on March 26, 2018
  • I use a combination of boxes and digging. Sometimes the boxes are so full I can’t get anymore in them and I’m not using the scraps fast enough so I have to throw them in a bigger box.

    —Rochelle on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in Ziplock bags by color.

    Kristin Laura on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps organized into bins- some by color, most by how much I can jam into them until I can sort the rest by color. That should happen around 2025.

    —Janey B on March 26, 2018
  • I sort most scraps by colors onto trays that are stored in a repurposed scrapbook paper cart. I keep florals separate in a plastic bin

    —Susan M on March 26, 2018
  • I have scraps in different bins with titles: Americana, xmas, fall, halloween. I also have bins with 1″, 1-1/2″, 2″ bins. Another bin of just scraps from everything. I made a Halloween quilt from nothing but scraps, FUN! Would be fun to win "Oh Scrap" for some new ideas in scrap quilting.

    barb h on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps by color in trays which are in portable, rolling cabinets. I try to be organized!!

    —Jacque Wright on March 26, 2018
  • I like to store my scraps by fabric line in plastic scrapbook organizers. So far, I have 7 bins as well as 4 baskets of scraps on the shelf of my bookcase. Can’t wait to scrap bust some of these overflowing baskets!!! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

    —Catherine on March 26, 2018
  • I use shelves, closets, bins and boxes and such. Sometimes things are even spread out on the guest bed.

    —Betty Phelps on March 26, 2018
  • I use a combination of clear storage cases and a large cabinet with shelves and drawers,
    And a tall vintage stand with tin bins that are removable. Some sorted by color and some by
    seasons.

    —Joni M. on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps in plastic boxes, sorted by colour. Fabric 50cm or more is folded and stacked by colour on shelves.

    —Trish P. on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps in a variety of containers, and have to do some digging!!

    —Linda Taylor on March 26, 2018
  • I do have my scraps in organized bins like Lissa, but I also have some strings in a large zip bag. This book sounds great with all the color hints too. Would love to have it! Thanks!

    —Marie Eddins on March 26, 2018
  • I sort my scraps by size (1-1/2″, 2″, 2-1/2″, 3″ and so on) in a couple drawers. I don’t sort by colors, because you never know what will work and I don’t want to be limited.

    —Deb Worthman on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins (separate ones for batiks). I don’t have enough to separate them by color (yet). Love this publication!

    —Lin S Sierra on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such….oh and car trunks, underbeds, bureaus…you know anywhere I can store it ;o)

    —Kristie Michalowski on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in a variety of ways. My favorite is a big zippered clear plastic bag that came with purchased bedding. I love to look at all my scraps and the memories they hold.
    I also store the bigger scraps in bins according to color along with other fabrics in my stash. I have a spare closet for this in our guest room.
    I’m a saver and don’t like to waste fabric, so making scrappy quilts is right up my alley.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win your book. I’m super excited !!

    —Katherine Williams on March 26, 2018
  • i store scraps sorted by color in bins in the closet except for batik scraps which are in a drawer.

    —joanne on March 26, 2018
  • My answer is Organized! Not so much. I do keep my Civil War scraps separate from bright and modern prints but I will admit I do a lot of digging. I also have trouble throwing even small pieces away. You would think they aren’t making more fabric. Would love to win. I could sure use it.

    —Carol on March 26, 2018
  • I have drawers, bins, a closet, dresser, shelves all by color. Love going thru my fabrics and rearranging the yardage to make more scrap quilts. Would love to own this book. Beautiful quilts!

    —Catherine Stiele on March 26, 2018
  • I go digging in bags is scraps , in bins. Not very organized!

    —Susie on March 26, 2018
  • Some of my scraps are organized into containers by size, some by color, and some are still in the container of the project I used it on. So, maybe that means I’m not very organized at all even though I would like to be. The book looks wonderful and I could sure use help deciding what scraps should go together.

    —Deborah B. on March 26, 2018
  • I have a container on my cutting bench and I toss them in. When it’s full, usually while watching some mindless TV show, I press them and sort them. I have just made a postage stamp quilt from my scraps – it’s a riot of color!

    —Pauline C on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps cut down to a few different sizes square and strips in couple of plastic stackable drawers. They are much easier to go through for applique amd small projects.

    —Julia Durdin on March 26, 2018
  • I would love to win. I did have my material in plastic boxes but we had to put most of my supplies in a storage locker. \Then slowly some of my material has returned home and I have bins and baskets. I had the colors separated but then I pulled fabrics for projects and now they are gathered by project or color. Love the book-there are so many I want to try.

    —Debbie Pearcey on March 26, 2018
  • Bins, shelves, closets and boxes – they all play a role in keeping my stash fairly well organized!

    —Laura on March 26, 2018
  • I was storing my scraps in a huge packing box, but just started sorting and cutting them into usable pieces.

    —Terri on March 26, 2018
  • I’m in the process of organizing my scraps by strips and squares. Then putting them in bins labels by size.

    —Kathy on March 26, 2018
  • I have a double set of drawers filled with my scraps filed according to size. Just love the quilts

    —Kerry Grose on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in two places. 1) Organized by size in clear plastic shoeboxes. I cut them into 4 different sizes: 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 3 inches. 2) My larger scraps are tossed into a big plastic tub. I try to pull from here and cut into sizes that fit my smaller boxes when they are running low. One day I hope to have a dedicated sewing room with lots of storage space. But this works for now

    —Ashley Pickrell on March 26, 2018
  • I am almost anal about my scraps – trimmed to usable sizes, sorted by color and size, stored in pull out drawers stacked on the shelf. So, when I want reds, I pull out all my reds and if necessary cut the larger sizes into smaller. Cutting the scraps is therapeutic for me – can just stand and cut without having to worry about what comes next. Truly a fabric fix! Would love to win the book! Thank you.

    —Sally Atkinson on March 26, 2018
  • I answered this when I first got to work and then went back to read the responses once I got off. These ladies are so cute with their little containers. I know I have a bit of a problem, but I love to make scrap quilts. I live alone so it gets out of control sometimes. I used to want a sewing room, but my daughter said I had a sewing apartment so now I refer to it as a studio with a full kitchen and bedroom. That makes me feel better. I made at least 2 or 3 scrap buster quilts a year so that helps a little. I also have quite a collection of books, so keep them coming. I love your books. 🙂

    —Kay on March 26, 2018
  • I keep by color groups and sizes in zip lock bags, when too full I move to plastic bins on shelves in my closet labeled on the outside.

    —Patricia Daw on March 26, 2018
  • Not very organized I’m afraid. When I make a quilt or a piece of clothing, I put the scraps in a bag. I continue with that bag until it is full. Then I start a new bag. I had to fire a housekeeper once for throwing out a bag full of scraps. She wasn’t supposed to have anything to do with trash of any type.

    —MPaula Whelan on March 26, 2018
  • I keep my scraps in tubs. I also keep my fabric, patterns, tools, batting, thread, everything under the sun in tubs. So, organized, but not so much as I would like!!

    —Jill Perfect on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric in plastic bins and on shelves.

    —Carol on March 26, 2018
  • Thanks for the chance to win, I keep my scraps in freezer bags according to colour then squish them in a cupboard on a shelf. So I have a rainbow in my cupboard!! It makes me smile every time I see it!

    —Jenny lloyd on March 26, 2018
  • Just started quilting so I don’t have many scraps, so I will say go digging but I so would love the star scraps!!

    —John Matthews on March 26, 2018
  • I start out organized by color in wire pull-out baskets in my closet, but as I go from reproduction to bright, modern fabrics, I eventually give up and throw them all in one bin. I then spend a couple of hours sorting, ironing and cutting so I can re-organize the fabrics into their cut shapes. At least, that’s the theory.

    Sjoukje Schipstra on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are kinda organized, until I go digging, not sure what I want. Then they are a mess!! Congrats on the new book. Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Kelly on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by color in plastic containers– when I’m organized. In plastic bags by no color arrangement — when I’m not.

    —Kathy R on March 26, 2018
  • I try to sort my fabrics by color and into different bins. But then I pull them out and they don’t go back in quite so neatly….which means I have overflowing bins! But I love to walk into my quilt closet and see all my colors!

    —Tari on March 26, 2018
  • Store scraps in old shoe boxes with tops. Mainly by size.

    Lj on March 26, 2018
  • I have my scraps organized by size in drawers. When looking for a specific size, I often organize the drawer by color. Of course when more scraps are added, I find I need to organize again later.

    —Nancy on March 26, 2018
  • Organize, more fun to go digging and find forgotten treasures.

    —Elaine on March 26, 2018
  • The bottom drawer of my nightstand us full of scraps. Some are partitioned in zip lock baggies, but most are free floating. It’s a glorious sight!

    —Deanne Tanner on March 26, 2018
  • I organized in bins, like Lissa.

    —Joyce on March 26, 2018
  • I have moved my sewing room out to our 5th wheel, because we never use it. So what a wonderful sewing room it is. Large TV, fireplace, kitchen, bathroom, etc. anywho, I store my fabric in boxes and my scraps in little waste baskets. I trim off the selvage of my fabrics to make zippered pouches, and they get stored in little suitcases.so far I’m pretty organized.

    —Charlee on March 26, 2018
  • Organized chaos. That’s my scrap pile. I try to keep them sorted by colors, in bags and totes. Of course I have LOTS of blues, yellows and greens and almost no browns, blacks, whites or reds… But the system is flawed by lack of space and indecision – where do all the multi-color florals go? Or all the odd ball prints? And do you keep the full fat quarters in the same place as the ones that have been cut into? In short, it’s organized chaos, hiding as much as possible, so my husband doesn’t connect just how many fabrics I really do have!

    —Linda Harper on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in two rolling bins in my closet. I keep them together according to what project I was working on that way if I’m working on a new project and need something with a specific color or theme I can remember that and say, "Oh yeah, I used that color or theme when I made such n’ such" and I automatically know where to find it. Perfect System that works for me.

    —Tanisha Keeling on March 26, 2018
  • I just recently sorted all my fabrics into either themed or color bins. The scraps are still in their own bind waiting to be sorted.

    —Wendy on March 26, 2018
  • Not so much, although I do kind of keep fabrics together by type — reproduction, batiks, etc. Would definitely like to be more organized than I am. I’m usually not crazy about scrap quilts, but these are wonderful

    —Diana Steverson on March 26, 2018
  • I store my fabric by color in clear plastic shoe boxes. I keep my precuts together. But I am trying to gather the courage to break them apart, store them by color and make one of a kind quilts. This book would give me the strength to do it! Love these beautiful quilts you tease us with. Hope I win

    —Janet Checchio on March 26, 2018
  • I just recently sorted all my fabrics into either themed or color bins. The scraps are still in their own bin waiting to be sorted.

    —Wendy on March 26, 2018
  • I use bin, grouped by type of fabric… repro, solid, modern for FQ and larger cuts. Smaller just go into bins by size, including smaller precursor.

    —Lyn on March 26, 2018
  • Organize?! Not so much. I just dig digging.

    —Karen Bergt on March 26, 2018
  • I really try to keep my yardage organized by color and/or by collection. As I am a beginning quilter and do not have tons of scraps at this point, I can only say I hope to be able to store my scraps by color. I like the idea of clear shoe boxes. I inherited lots of scraps from my mom, however, and they are still in garbage bags! Oh my!

    —Laurie Devers on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such. But, that doesn’t mean organized! I go digging! Lissa’s book sounds like the kick start I need to become more organized with scraps, so I can make some of those gorgeous quilts! It would be Heaven to be a winner of some of Lissa’s scraps to see how she combines colors – and the book of course.

    —Judy Chastain on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are pretty neatly stored in colors by squares, triangles and 2 1/2inch strips. I make donation scrap quilts every January in order to keep them from multiplying so fast! This year I was still working we
    It’s them through February. I love scrap quilts and make lots of "30’s". So much fun. Love Moda and Dallas where I grew up!

    —Sharon Lowy on March 26, 2018
  • I am not very well organized with scraps. They are mostly just thrown in baskets. One for lights and one for darks.

    —Karen A on March 26, 2018
  • Storage is in bins and shelves in the closet.

    —Ruth on March 26, 2018
  • My FQ scraps are sorted by color in plastic bins, but my smaller scraps are sorted by value in plastic drawers.

    —Sherry Jurykovsky on March 26, 2018
  • I’M new to quilting so right now I am using graduated sizes of zip lock bags and plastic containers. I have the prints sorted into themes and then colors. Solids are sorted by different size cuts.

    —Leslie O’Loughlin on March 26, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins,by color and size. The bins fit in a closet right now! 😉

    —Dawn Tidd on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins, baskets and try to seperate by size or color!

    —Elaine Morgan on March 26, 2018
  • So far,just one small bin!

    —nancy on March 26, 2018
  • Love the patterns and color from Oh, Scrap book. Would love to win. Thanks for the chance.

    —Denise V. on March 26, 2018
  • My fabrics are stored in bins, by color mainly, but also by project.

    —Ann Hedington on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in clear shoe boxes by color, all 15 years worth of them. Nice giveaway, thank you.

    —Liz Dyer on March 26, 2018
  • Organized bins for me!

    —Carol W on March 26, 2018
  • I store small scraps by color but I have many boxes of project scraps waiting to be sorted. Lovve this book already and I haven’t even seen it yet. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Mary Larson on March 26, 2018
  • When I moved 2 years ago I went through all my scraps & organized them into drawers in several plastic carts which fit nicely under my cutting table. they have been so much more useful than in tubs. What a wonderful giveaway..& book!!!!

    —Pamela Reim on March 26, 2018
  • Much of my fabric has been given to me & traveled with me through many moves so organization has started out with good intent and ended up filling the last little space in some unrelated box. I just recently moved into a house where I will have a dedicated sewing room for the first time. I will probably try to organize by color now.

    —Margaret on March 26, 2018
  • I store my Stash in large clear plastic bins for the bigger pieces and I also have small 3 drawer containers for smaller pieces, For left over strips (ie 2-2 1/2″ I use Q-Tip boxes-that are like little drawers, I glue them on top of each other and add buttons for pulls (these take up little space and can be stacked as high as the shelf they are on )all fabrics are colour coded (with 1 smaller bin for those mixed prints that don’t seem to fit any particular colous ).

    —ELIZAJANE on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are mostly in color bins, except for my smallest squares, they are sorted by size. I do have a basket with the remains from my cutting table that are awaiting cutting/sorting/organizing. The patterns in this book look like they could be just the thing to continue busting my stash.

    —Judyk on March 26, 2018
  • I like to keep scraps by color.

    —Ronda Harrison on March 26, 2018
  • I use bins, sorted by color.

    —Melody Lutz on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in everything. Some left over triangles from making hot are in baggies. Some are in plastic bins by color , and some in bags 💼. All mixed up and crazy. But I agree with Lisa’s idea of controlled scrappiness for an organized color scheme in a quilt.

    —S Brewer on March 26, 2018
  • my fabric is in colour themed boxes & then my small scraps are all in one box so I have to dig! oh and i have a pile in the corner ready for sorting – someday! haha

    —suzanne keal on March 26, 2018
  • I have all my scraps in plastic containers, the kind they sell to store your shoes in. I have them in my closet on shelves by color

    —Teresa E Brown on March 26, 2018
  • I have fallen in love with scraps and I am starting to make quilts with them. I am collecting boxes to sort them into. And I cut past scraps into usable pieces. However, it seems I can never get all caught up as the scraps continue to accumulate. Therefore, I would enjoy your book.

    —Kaye on March 26, 2018
  • I keep most of my stash on shelves sorted by color. Then there are the tiny scraps stored in clear plastic shoe containers. I could go on and on but you get the picture.

    —Carolyn Sands on March 26, 2018
  • I have them all in plastic shoe boxes by color, on shelves in my closet.

    —Teresa Brown on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are not very organized at all but it works for me! I love, love, love scrappy quilts!

    —Nell on March 26, 2018
  • Unfortunatrly I am not very organized; always have to go digging❤️

    —Helle S. on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted into bins. I don’t press and fold them or anything like that. I just sort them by color and if it is a multicolor print, I sort by the dominate color. Then I just kind of fold them a little and put them in a bin. I love scrap quilts, especially scraps that are mixed prints. I don’t like solids very much. But I love to work with multicolor scrap quilts. They are my favorite kind of quilts.

    —Angela Bowling on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are unorganized chaos, scattered everywhere – just collected a handful that had been in the garage for a while and thought – I need to organize/sort them into see through totes!

    —P on March 26, 2018
  • Bins and shelves. Thanks for the giveaway

    —Nancy Zimmerman on March 26, 2018
  • All my fabrics are stored in plastic containers by color. But, my scrap fabric pieces are stored in a hamper.

    —Mary on March 26, 2018
  • We just moved so they are packed in totes waiting to be organized.

    —Amy Holt on March 26, 2018
  • I cannot wait to get a hold of this book!!! I’ve had it saved on Amazon and keep thinking maybe I’ll be lucky enough to find it in a store somewhere. Scrap quilting is the best but I feel like I never have a large enough assortment of beautiful colorful scraps…at least not enough to make a large enough quilt. I would love to win this book and the scraps. Thanks so much!

    —Pam C on March 26, 2018

    But it is nicely sorted!

    —Joan K on March 26, 2018
  • Every so often I sort my scraps, usually by color. If I have a project I pull the colors I want and then cut the sizes I want. I keep my scraps in cubbies of a shelving unit, folded as neatly as possible so I don’t have too big of an ironing job! My teeny tiny scraps I sort by color in clear plastic boxes. Just wish my house was as neat as my sewing room!

    —Carol on March 26, 2018

    Baskets, too. I would love to win this book. It looks awesome!!

    —Diane Krupa on March 26, 2018
  • I cannot bear to throw away quilt fabric scraps. I collect any pieces that are at least 2″ square and save them in plastic boxes. Then some evening while "Watching" TV I cut squares of various sizes and sort them into plastic shoeboxes, labeled, for example, "2 1/2″ or 6 1/2″. I also have a larger plastic box for collecting strips of various widths and lengths.

    —Elizabeth D. on March 26, 2018

    —Mary P. Taylor on March 26, 2018

    —Lena T on March 26, 2018
  • I use plastic bins for smaller cuts and an old dresser that was my mothers for larger cuts. The bins are more efficient; but, I like the connection to my mother every time I pull out a drawer.

    —Shannon Clapperton on March 26, 2018
  • My scraps are in plastic bags, colour co-ordinated and neatly ironed, then the bags are placed in a pretty decoupaged tub. I think scraps are still beautiful fabric that deserve special care and a special place in my quilting area. If I win I would love the sherbet stars quilt pack to make.

    —Lee on March 26, 2018
  • How do I store my scrap fabrics? The short answer is in clear plastic bins, according to genre–Christmas, Civil War, 30’s Reproduction, novelty prints, and then by color–blues, background (white/cream/beige), etc. The size of the bin is in proportion to the amount of scraps of that type of fabric I currently possess. My largest bin contains fabric scraps of all colors, sorted by color families, and an absolute delight to pour through!

    —Bella Jones on March 26, 2018
  • I like to separate bins into different colors. I also make use of dressers not being used by having drawers of solids, prints, flannels, etc.

    —Carolyn Norton on March 26, 2018
  • My fabric is stored by color in cubby shelves, and my scraps are sorted by color and kept in 12 fabric drawers that are the same color as the scraps. They fit in the cubbys.

    —Peggy Flowers on March 26, 2018
  • I always intend to organize the Scraps after finishing a quilt but they seem to be swished aside. Therefore I usually go digging 😆. And I have a truck load of scraps. I started quilting in 1987 waiting on my first child. I would love the book.

    —Kathy Howard on March 26, 2018
  • Somewhere between the first choice & the second! In bins & tubs of various sizes… but not so super organized. They are sorted by colour. But I also have a random collection that is gradually going into ‘string’ blocks on a backing. For "crumb" quilts as they are called. They are too small for anything else, so I don’t ‘organize’ them at all! Sewing ‘crumbs’ is my therapy!!

    —JanG on March 26, 2018
  • The book looks fabulous, I love scrappy bits. Mine are stored in boxes (well some of them) otherwise I just have to go on a scrap hunt!

    —Janet Cribb on March 26, 2018

    —Debbie Redfield on March 26, 2018
  • I try to ‘recut’ my leftovers into various usable sizes. Then I throw all the like sizes into separate bins and wait for the next Scrap pattern to grab me.

    —Cathy on March 26, 2018
  • my scraps, no matter the size, along with larger pieces and even yardage that I no longer want, all go into boxes in no particular manner. Then, when I have time, I get out my Accuquilt Big electric cutter, match the pieces to my dies, and cut. One of these days, I’ll have lots of charity quilts to donate. I even get my husband involved in the cutting!

    —Roz Agulnik on March 26, 2018
  • Most of my small scraps are in bags or bins so there is usually lots of digging involved. Love those scrappy quilts, though!

It would be sew much fun to win these scraps! Thanks for the chance!

    —Pam on March 26, 2018

    —Linda on March 26, 2018

  • Bags on shelves in piles!!

    —Leigh Ann P on March 26, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much—I just go digging!……..trying to develop a system but not succeeding very well!

    —Sally Ann on March 26, 2018
  • I have a set of rainbow coloured drawers, so my scraps get colour coded! 🌈

    —Anne Boundy on March 26, 2018
  • I would love this book giveaway. I love scraps and scrap quilts. I store my scraps in open wicker rectangular baskets by strips. 1″ thru 3″ in half " increments in one basket. Then 3 1/2″ thru 5″ in another rectangular basket. I also have a rectangular basket for 10″ layer cake cuts and some 5″ squares. 5″ charms in a smaller clear plastic tote and several clear plastic totes with 2 1/2″ squares. These squares are the only ones organized by color thanks to the grandbabies. We play color games with fabric. I cut scraps up after every project that are smaller than a fat quarter to start new quilt projects. Fat quarters are stored by color as is yardage in ikea cubed shelving units. Anything smaller than 1″ is put in pillow cases for pet beds for the shelter. I’ve inherented scraps from friends and family after making a several scrap quilts to donate to wonderful organizations. I can’t function in chaos. But I do believe scraps multiply when your not looking! Lol

    —Sandra Smith on March 27, 2018
  • Not so organized.

    —Sherrie Conover on March 27, 2018
  • I store the bulk of my scraps in a plastic storage bin. I also took a medium size wastebasket and made a cover and attached liner out of some leftover yardage to cover it and make it look decorative in the sewing room. All scraps are tossed into it as I sew. If I need a bit of fabric to test a stitch or something, it’s right there in the bin.

    —Deb C on March 27, 2018
  • I have a plastic tub that I try to keep organised but it doesn’t always work.

    —Jenny on March 27, 2018
  • Oh, I always need to digg into my scraps. Definitely need some organisation in the future. Lol!

    —Mary Courtright on March 27, 2018

    A. Bouwman on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins. I have been trying to sort them by size and color, but it’s a work in progress.

    —Dorthy Clendenning on March 27, 2018
  • I store scraps by colors in plastic shoe box bins except for a big laundry basket that I keep under my cutting table that I throw scraps in. It’s fun to sort through that when I need different colors. I am looking forward to reading this book.

    —Patti on March 27, 2018
  • I put my scraps in vintage jars although I have a lot of scraps as I tend to use as much of the fabric as I can😁.

    —Annette on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are in bins. Sorting them by colour and size is (of course) on my to-do list!

    —Donna on March 27, 2018
  • Scraps here and there, ready for the using while I’m sewing. I try to corral them in bins but then…..they seem to follow me wherever I go. Love scraps and of course sewing them up into something beautiful!

    —Jan N. on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in a couple of ways. I cut some of my smaller leftover fabrics into 1.5″, 2″ and 2.5″ squares. I give the smaller sizes to a friend who has more patience than I do. The 2.5″ squares I keep together with my charity quilt fabrics. I keep fabric strips between 1″-2.5″ in colour families held together with a safety n and hung from a coat hangar. These I use for string quilts. Pieces suitable for appliqué, I keep in a plastic bag at the back of my storage bins. I keep all fabric in bins by colour. The scraps that I might use for appliqué, I keep in the plastic bags at the back of each colour drawer. I also keep some colour scraps in with related novelty fabrics.

    —Diane on March 27, 2018
  • In bins. Not necessarily organized!

  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such.

    —Mary E on March 27, 2018
  • Right now I have my scraps sorted by colors but that means I have several containers and that takes up a lot of floor space. Thinking about finding a corner to stack them in. Hope they don’t fall over. Love this book!

    —Dianna on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are stored in bags and i just go digging, but hope to get organized some day. 😂

    —Ramona Johnson on March 27, 2018
  • My fabric is stored in drawers, bins, and on shelves. Some are sorted by project, others by color, and a few are by category like baby, Christmas, Halloween. One thing I know for certain…..my fabric will outlive me unless I really start producing!

    —Sharon Linders on March 27, 2018
  • I keep my small scraps in a bin. I keep larger folded pieces on a shelf and in drawers sorted by collection type, batiks, traditional, Christmas or solids.

    —Sandy Rizzo on March 27, 2018
  • Scraps organized? Not so much. I go digging in bins, bags, boxes, baskets, baggies, wherever there is available space to store my scraps. I am working towards lumping them in by color.

    —Mary D on March 27, 2018
  • My fabric is stored in a variety of ways, some more organized than others. I have separated batiks by colour and when I have small scraps, I cut them into a usable size for a a couple of scrap quilt patterns I have already selected. Love the book.

    —Gloria Meyer on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by color in 12 bins in 2 drawers. I need this book.

    —Annette S on March 27, 2018

    —Christine A. on March 27, 2018
  • Like Lissa, my scraps are in organized bins. Can’t waste time digging to find what I need- projects are waiting to be sewn!

    —Dixie Klima on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are definitely not organized; I just go digging! Sigh! I have to say, I do love this book and could put it to use! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Emma Somero on March 27, 2018
  • My strip scraps are sorted by size in labeled shoe boxes and type in other boxes, eg, HSTs, squares. It makes me happy when I dive into one of my boxes and use some scraps!

    —Diane on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins, organized by colour.
    Fabulous book and prizes. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Debbie R. on March 27, 2018
  • I store my small scraps by color in bins. I also have some of the bigger scraps by size.

    —Sue Bucklew on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins by color, but I also separate batiks from cottons. I separate my yardage that way, so I guess I just carried that through to scraps. However, I have no problem using them together in a scrap quilt.

    —Brenda on March 27, 2018
  • In organized bins, like Lissa.

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on March 27, 2018
  • I have a large plastic bin for my strips and I have Ziplock bags for my 2 and a 1/2 inch squares and another box for my 1 and 3/4 inch squares. They are not organized by color they are just a big jumble. I need this book! Love the photos.

    —Elaine M on March 27, 2018
  • My scrap collection is sorted by color into six envelope boxes. It would be helpful if my scraps were organized by size, but they are not!

    —marlene on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in some fabric baskets that I made. Some of them are cut into pieces for sewing patchwork blocks and I put them in plastic zip lock bags and label each one, before putting those in the baskets. I hope I win this time, I really would love to have this book. Thank you for the give away!

    —Karen H. on March 27, 2018
  • Beautiful book! Thank you for a chance to win it AND the scraps. My scraps are in rolling toy bins from ikea. I sort by size and then by light and dark.

    —MollieAgnes on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are organized only by size. We recently moved and downsized. I had to get rid of 1/2 of my entire fabric stash, so many of my "miscellaneous" scraps went. At least now I know what I have, and of course, am starting to rebuild my scrap-stash!

    —Mami B on March 27, 2018
  • Scraps ? Everything sewable goes in pouches and plastic bags but nothing looks like squares or stripes cause it’s all handsewn leftovers…
    Strange little stamps of fabric to be appliqued or sewn in tiny mini quilts. 😉

    —Nath on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps and other fabric by color in see-through plastic shoe boxes, medium-sized boxes and three drawer chests. I do not separate by size.

    —Janet G on March 27, 2018
  • I have started using Bonnie Hunter’s scrap savers system, so they are cut in useful sizes. They are stored according to sizes in plastic bags, labeled so I know what size they are at a glance. I have even started cutting them into useful sizes before they hit the scrap bin. When it’s full I just have to go through and sort them into their proper bags.

    —Nancy on March 27, 2018
  • I cut my manageable scraps in 1-1/2″, 2″, 2-1/2″ and 3=1/2″ strips, squares and hst’s and store them in plastic containers by size. Odd sized pieces are thrown in one container and used for strings and paper piecing.

    —Karen Jautaikis on March 27, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such. How did you know? Some by color, theme, size, style. Yep, everywhere.

    Karen on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by size in bins(ex. 1/2” up 6” strips, squares and HTS.
    This is time consuming; I must have several quilts cut out already. Just select a pattern and I ready to go. Thank you for a chance to win. Happy Quilting 😊

    —Sheila Ivany on March 27, 2018
  • hehehe I am sorta organized. Lots of plastic boxes sorted by color…scraps in a giant (as in 3 feet tall)basket, when I get into the mood I cut to the Bonnie Hunter sizes (because those sizes work for me too)and sort by color and cut. I love scrappy!

    —Bridget on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps by size: 1 1/2″ squares/strips, 2″ squares/strips and so on. My fat quarters and yardage is separate. I am always on the lookout for books on scrap quilts. Would love to have this book and scraps.

    —Nicki Zazula on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are in a big bin. The overflow is in two big tote bags. I dump them to find what I need, then shove them all back in til next time. What a mess! I need to go get a tower of plastic see-through boxes and spend a couple of afternoons pressing and sorting. I cant imagine pre-cutting! What if the perfect scrap was cut too small? I hope to learn a new way to look at and use my scraps from Oh, Scrap! and solve this delimma!

    —Juls in FL on March 27, 2018
  • I store all my scraps by color in large Ziploc bags.

    —Carolyn S on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in bins by color. Each bin is the color of the scraps inside! My blue bin is running over.

    —Jean Blythe on March 27, 2018
  • I keep part of my scraps in a plastic storage bin. My son gave me a wood storage cabinet for Christmas and I store some of my Disney scraps there. I just moved into an upstairs room to use as a sewing/quilting room tanks to my wonderful family. New storage bins have been ordered so that I have more space. I’m new to quilting but have develop a great love for this art. I can’t seem to get enough.

    —Vicky Portwood on March 27, 2018
  • I have fabric in scrapbook sized plastic bins, small square and rectangle (shoebox size) bins, huge(2.5 gal) and gallon size zip loc type bags,wire baskets and in an old armoire!

  • I use bins, closets and shelving!

    —Sharon on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by sizes. Each size has a bag/bin. From there, I like to dig! I often uncover something I wasn’t looking for, which leads to ideas on a new totally different project. Thanks for the inspiration to try new things and for the give-away!

    —Cheryl S on March 27, 2018
  • My strips are organized in drawers. I organize my larger scraps by color in bankers boxes so that means I dig. Those who know me know I make scrap quilts using some of the smallest pieces.

    —Gloria Albright on March 27, 2018
  • I have bins for organized pieces and another one for just tossing into before organizing.

    —SherryG on March 27, 2018
  • We sold our house and full timed in an RV for 4+ years so my stash had to somehow fit as I am an avid quilter! It still lives in the plastic under-the-bed containers that roamed with us in the RV’s "basement". One container for tools, one for thread, one for solids, one for prints, one for precuts, one each for my favorite two designers, one for projects underway, a larger one for projects completed, one for scraps sealed in Ziploc bags by size. When we bought a small home this past summer, I just moved the bins into my new sewing room and stacked them in the closet. When we travel (like right now) they move back into the RV basement. Works pretty well!!!

    —Gayle Mitchel on March 27, 2018
  • Most of my scraps are not sorted…I just toss them in plastic bins and dig through them when I’m looking for something I can use. I also have a dresser with certain drawers for certain scraps so I don’t lose them, because they’re for certain projects.

    Gina on March 27, 2018
  • I LOVE this book !!!! I store my fabric in plastic bins of many sizes and am always trying to improve the organization side. Would LOVE to win some of Lissa’s scraps thank you so much for the chance !!

    —Terrie Ruiz on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in see through bins.
    Love Lissa’s work.

    —Lynne on March 27, 2018
  • I have my scraps organized in bins. More time for sewing when I spend less time trying to find the ONE fabric that is just right!!!

    —Trish Probandt on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are filed by colour in the same pull out IKEA wire drawers as fat quarters and half metres – smallest scraps at the front.
    That way I can pick up a pile of (eg) blue and another of yellow and start cutting and piecing.

    —GloryB on March 27, 2018
  • Most of my scraps were organized by color in plastic shoe boxes. THEN we moved and as I was putting my fabric away, I pulled out anything that was less than a fat quarter and put it in a couple of shopping bags and baskets. This has not yet been sorted by color. And I LOVE SCRAPS. Some of my friends from my previous guild even mail them to me. Would LOVE to win some of Lissa’s!!!

    —Linda Ahn on March 27, 2018
  • Unfortunately I have not organized my scraps. I have a few bags and I just dig thru them.

    —Martha Cook on March 27, 2018
  • My binding leftovers go in our container for scrappy quilts and leftovers are cut into squares and stored in plastic drawers. Even after making scrappy quilts, the pile doesn’t seem to go down.

    —Gwenne Pottier on March 27, 2018
  • Well, how do I store my scraps?! I really WANT to be organized, but I fall short. About half are in containers, shelves, etc., etc., but others are jumbled in tubs, buckets etc. You can see, I really need to make the quilts in this book — and I will still have scraps! 🙂

    —Carol Schon on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps that are strips cut in sizes ready for String Quilts or log cabin blocks. Larger fabric are stored by colors and some by type of fabric such as Batiks all together.

    —Lana Drum on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps that are cut into useful sizes are in small bins by size. I also have a HUGE basket of selvages, another huge container of strings, a medium-sized bin of strangely shaped scraps for paper piecing, and two baskets of scraps to be sorted. I am semi-organized at best. Thanks for a fun giveaway.

    —Karen Seitz on March 27, 2018
  • I use bins, clear boxes and shelves. I cut 5″, 3″ squares and stack in clear boxes to make scrap quilts. I save 1″ strips for pin cushions and 2″ scraps for doll quilts. the scrap quilts are beautiful.

    —Peggy S on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are not terribly organized. Old project scraps are together, but other fabric I have purchased, not so much.

    —Lorna Reeser on March 27, 2018
  • I use bins, drawers by size and cloth storage bins by color. In other words, I have them all over the house. Would love to win book by Lissa Alexander. Many years ago she did a program for a guild I belonged to. She was great.

    —joanne on March 27, 2018
  • What a fantastic book! I love all of the scrap quilts displayed. I use bins, shelves, and boxes to store my fabric collection. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    —Bonnie on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are folded and stored in small drawers by color and hue. It makes finding what I am looking for so much faster. The tiny (and I mean tiny) pieces that I keep are folded and stacked together by color in a bin. Would love to have a copy of this BOOK! Scrap quilts are my favorite.

    —Darliss Peabody on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in containers by designer. Would love to win this book. 💟💟💟

    —JoAnn on March 27, 2018
  • I have a series of cabinets that hold my fabrics on shelves.

    —Shellie Purcell on March 27, 2018
  • Oh, I’m organized! Until I dig for a certain color of fabric then my boxes immediately become a mess! Yes, I’ll go back and organize again later I tell myself. So far I’m not doing too well in the ‘reorganizing’ department though!

    —Connie on March 27, 2018
  • I have a bin for strips, a bin for squares and triangles, and a "bin" (maybe more of a big bin) for everything else.

    —Sarah J on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are unorganized. I have never made a scrappy quilt, so I’ll have to work on organizing them so I can.

    —Melissa on March 27, 2018
  • I love scrap quilts and the patterns in this book look incredible. My scraps are not organized , I just go digging through the old pretzel container used to store them.😁

    —Jeanette velardi on March 27, 2018
  • I stole my scraps in tubs, large & small. I have started sorting into color & storing same colors together, mostly strips
    Your books looks like so much fun. A wonderful way to use up those scraps. I love the quilts you have made, beautiful!

    —Victoria Banks on March 27, 2018
  • I have organized bins. They are catagorized by strip size. Others that are not strips are by color and I also have two string bins. One is color and one is neutral.

    —Susan L. on March 27, 2018
  • I sort my fabrics by colour and then store the piles on shelves in the closet.

    —Linda Webster on March 27, 2018
  • Haha, my scraps are not organized whatsoever! I just have them stuffed silly Billy in different plastic bags and boxes.

    —Sarah H on March 27, 2018
  • Most of my fabric is in plastic see through boxes. But I keep my batiks separate as well as wool scraps. Projects are kept together in their own bins so I don’t loose pieces. Love the book

    —Barbara lotthammer on March 27, 2018
  • I store my scraps in lovely decorative boxes. Like big hat boxes, but square, they have nice magnetic closures, so open and close easily as well as being strong enough to stack 2-3 tall on my shelving system.
    Once I have the scraps separated by size, I then sort the stacks in the boxes by color. I find it so easy to "pull" from when they are color sorted. I label the outside of the box with a sticky note on the side. This is removable and not able to be seen from the front when they are put away. If I run out of a size or have to change boxes because one gets to full, or empty, The "system" is easily changed around because nothing is permanently labeled.
    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one of the prizes.

    —Peggy on March 27, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much—I just go digging!

    —Christine M on March 27, 2018
  • I don’t store scraps much because they make me crazy but I LUV LUV LUV your book and am willing to go the whole mile to make the gorgeous quilts….especially the pink one….LUV LUV LUV…arden

    —Arden Shelton on March 27, 2018
  • I would kill for the pink scraps!

    —Arden Shelton on March 27, 2018
  • My scraps are organised by colour, whilst complete ranges are kept together, I fold them into clear, shallow tubs on wheels, which I stack and can see at a glance.

    —Lyn Fox on March 28, 2018
  • In bags and bins and totally disorganised!

    —Faye Lawrence on March 28, 2018
  • I love scrappy quilts and am accumulating lots of scraps for making my own scrappy quilt someday. I usually put them into a ziplock baggie and then jam it into a bin. They surprise me sometimes by appearing out of nowhere when I’m looking fir something else.

    Amy DeCesare on March 28, 2018
  • Love scrap quilts

    —Avon Bingham on March 28, 2018
  • i have in bins drawers and on shelves

    —karen on March 28, 2018
  • Scraps are in bins drawers by strip or square size. I can’t see fast enough to get my scraps gonne

    —Avon Bingham on March 28, 2018
  • My storage space is limited but I keep larger scraps in plastic bins and it works perfectly for me! I really must make a scrap quilt to make room for more scraps…. sometimes it seems to get a little out of hand!

    —Michele T on March 28, 2018
  • I do it the same way as my Mother and Aunt Ollie did. In brown paper bags and sorted by colors. They said the bag let air get to the material. Sorting by color makes it easy when I’m looking to pair it up other material. Just a side note but my Aunt Ollie was a 110 years old and still hand piecing quilt blocks. She always said active hands kept a person young and the mind clear. This is now my excuse for feeding my quilt addiction.

    —Sally Engle on March 28, 2018
  • After the scraps party all night and discombobulate themselves, I try to use bins by size but that just seems to throw the into a fuzzy so I now have neutrals separated but colors are still mismatched. OH and then they just seem to reproduce with abandonment in the dark. I really need this book,lol.

    —Debbie on March 28, 2018
  • Older scraps are in a neat little bundle like my grandmother taught mr over 50 years ago. Nothing was thrown away. Now the scraps are placed in a container with the project I am working on. When I am done the container with the scraps are put on a shelf and forgotten until I need something from it for another project.

    —Noreen Davis on March 28, 2018
  • I am SO into scrap quilts! I organize my scraps by color. Some of the pieces in my stash get cut down into strips (mostly 1.5” & 2.5”) . . .then they’re folded into color packs. All of my neutral/background fabrics are all together. I also have a bin of FQs that are sort of arranged by value. Sometimes i’ll order kits & dissect them to have more variety in my scrap stash. It’s very unusual for me to purchase more than a half yard

    —Paula R in GA on March 28, 2018
  • My fabrics and scraps are in plastic tubs by color.
    What a great giveaway!

    —Kathleen Chenoweth on March 28, 2018
  • Most of my new quilts are scrappy. I collect then in photo boxes by width size, ie. 2″, 2.5″, 5″, 10″, multi-size squares, and strings. After I have my pattern, either one already written or designed by me, I have the fun of sorting out the colors I want to use. Drawers hold my pieces that are between a fat quarter and 1.5 yards are labeled by color, type and collection. Yardage is folded into 1/4 length-wise by color and displayed on shelves on two walls of my sewing room. The quilts in this book would go a long way in using up my scraps.

    —Robbin Golden on March 28, 2018
  • I just go digging, in bags and bins and baskets!

    Kaholly on March 28, 2018
  • My fabric is sorted by color in clear totes. Many,many of them. Scraps are usually cut into strips and squares and placed in boxes according to size. Half square triangles are sewn, pressed, squared up and stacked in boxes according to size. I just wish I had more time to use up more of these scraps. Perhaps I’ll be the lucky one to win.

    Jeanette Jensen on March 28, 2018
  • I store my scraps by size & color in bins- stash size, scrap size and smaller pieces for appliqué. Thanks for a chance to win!

    —Judy Faulkner on March 28, 2018
  • I use the "boxes, bags,closet…." method right now, but I am actively working on getting them into bins, sorted by color. Pray for me! I would love to win one of these wonderful prizes. I have been drooling over Lissa’s book ever since I saw it. Thanks for the to to win.

  • Most of my scraps are in a big jumble so I ask grandchildren to search and they are quite good at finding what I want. Some are organized in open top shoe boxes.

    —Nancy on March 28, 2018
  • By color in transparent zipped plastic bags

    —Isabel Rodríguez on March 28, 2018
  • I try to organise my scraps, by colour, in boxes. But to be totally honest, ‘try’ is all I do! In reality they get piled up on my sewing cart, till they topple off, then I give organising them a go. But usually get sidetracked by another quilt!

    —Denise Hair on March 29, 2018
  • Wonderful blog hop. Loved everyone’s projects. I store my scraps in bins…trying to be color coordinated. grinnie2961 at gmail dot com

    —Linda Williamson on March 29, 2018
  • I have bins with blocks cut by size, and plastic boxes with unsized scraps. I need to get this in order, but I keep getting sidetracked!

    —Susan Yates on March 29, 2018
  • The big pieces (FQs) are stored in clear totes by color. As they get cut up the remnants are stored by size in open baskets at my cutting station or stored in boxes, and the strings get tossed into the "string basket" which has now become a string bin! This book looks wonderful! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Lill on March 29, 2018
  • I started to follow Bonnie Thompson’s method of storing my scrapes by length and width so that I can just go to those bins and pull from them. If I need more to add to my project then I will pull from my stash.

    —Wanda on March 29, 2018
  • I am trying to use bins, but scraps are pretty much everywhere, bins, shelves, drawers, boxes.

    —Cindy French on March 29, 2018
  • I organize my scraps by color in bins!

    —Pat V. on March 29, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much—I just go digging!

    —Jayne P on March 29, 2018

    —Jean H on March 29, 2018
  • I sort scraps by color and put in see through bins.

    —Amy W on March 29, 2018

    —Marge Ehlers on March 30, 2018
  • My organization only lasted for neutrals, they are in one spot and separated by sizes… The rest, I have all over the place. Yet to learn how to deal with the rest

    —Tatyana Ramela on March 30, 2018
  • I must admit, I am very unorganized when it comes to my scraps. They just get tossed into a plastic bin and I dig through it when looking for something. I need to find a more organized method.

    —Barbara Reifsnider on March 30, 2018
  • i use boxes and plastic containers to sort by color. i’m always planning to sort by size and have them all cut up in nice ready to use bundles but……………..

    —shoshana vogel on March 30, 2018
  • Some of my scraps are organized into same size cut pieces (2-1/2″ squares, etc.). And then others are chaotic! My intent is to get back to the chaos and get those cut into same size pieces! Best of intentions!!! The book looks fabulous and I intent to get sewing on scraps soon!

    —Kathy G. on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are somewhat organized in small clear plastic bins that fit on shelves in my craft room. Sort of coordinated by color and type. There’s always room for more stash. Thanks for this giveaway

    —Virginia Bronner on March 30, 2018
  • my scraps are in assorted boxes, mostly sorted by color

    —Susan MacLeod on March 30, 2018
  • I’ve only just recently acquired a stash big enough to "organize." I’d say it’s roughly organized by color …. Thanks for such a generous offer!

    —bookboxer on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are stored by color in drawers and plastic bins. They have been waiting for this book to come along – wonderful patterns.

    —Sheila on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are organized by size, but I’m rethinking that. Might have to pull them out and sort by color. Oh, and maybe donate some to the birds. Congrats on your new book!

    —Cheryl Maddalozzo on March 30, 2018
  • I store my scraps in clear shoe boxes, generally organized by color. Lissa’s quilts are beautiful, I love scrap quilts!

    —Mary on March 30, 2018
  • I have my scraps sorted by color in bins and laying mostly flat which makes it easy to pull out what I want.

    —Tawnie on March 30, 2018
  • I like the clear sided storage containers so I can see at a glance what’s inside.

    —Shirley j on March 30, 2018
  • Most of my quilts are made from scraps so my scraps are very organized; otherwise I would not find anything. Some sorting is by color, but my Civil War, batiks and ’30’s fabrics are in separate bins.

    —Barbaraben on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by size, hence my scrap quilt are not coordinated- that means that my quilts are all scrappy and randomly colored. This takes the pressure off.

    —Mary on March 30, 2018
  • I have totes but I still have to go digging to find the right fabric!

    —Janna Lee on March 30, 2018
  • I don’t know what is more beautiful the little lad and his watering can or the gorgeous quilt behind him!
    My only organization begins when I sit down with all the colours and blends before me to work out the design and flow for my next quilt or runners. This book looks so exciting and refreshing!

    —Alfreda R. on March 30, 2018
  • I’m an in-betweener: sone are organized by color and size, while some are still stuffed into a big wicker basket.

    —Beth T. on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are cut by size and stored in shoe boxes.

    —Anna on March 30, 2018

    mandy whalen on March 30, 2018
  • I cut my left-overs into squares and strips which are then stored in bins according to size.

    —Gloria Cotten on March 30, 2018

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on March 30, 2018
  • I use bins most of the time but have some wrapped around boards on a shelf. Whatever will work in my small space.

    —Michelle Eacret on March 30, 2018
  • I have an organized bin and then I have assorted slightly organized boxes and then I have a large totally unorganized box that i dig in. Love all my scraps.

    —Sue on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are still in ziploc bags in numerous baskets according to each project I have completed – I really need to organize by color and will use the clear shoebox size for that. Thank you for the opportunity to win this book from Lissa and her scraps!

    —Carole on March 30, 2018
  • I store them in plastic bins. Mostly by color but some by designer and some by project. It just depends.

    —cj on March 30, 2018
  • I use two major storage systems – 1.) An old dresser with drawers for fat quarters organized by color, one drawer for panels and larger pieces of fabric, one drawer for applique paper fusible things, and one drawer for near completed projects. I also have a plastic multi-drawer unit for scraps cut in sizes 1 inch up to 6 inches. Still have misc bins but now much easier to find the right piece/size of scraps!

    —Deb S on March 30, 2018
  • I have a wall of shallow shelving where all my fabric is folded and stacked, organized by color. It’s right next to my longarm so I have rainbow to look at everyday!

    —Carol on March 30, 2018
  • My scrap storage is a work in process. I was cutting them and storing by size, but I have decided they should be stored by color and special categories such as children’s prints and shirting. I have done some of the sorting, but I had to stop because I had several projects with deadlines. I only have one of those projects left, and then I will get back to my organizing of the scraps. They will be kept in labeled bins.

    —Nancy A on March 30, 2018
  • I have some stored by size in plastic containers but also have that stack of scraps that need to be sorted. I love the organized scrappy look and want to make all of those quilts! What one would I start with ? hmmmm

    Linda W on March 30, 2018
  • I use the Scrap Savers System as well as on shelves.

    —Kathy L on March 30, 2018
  • In organized bins, like Lissa.

    —Sandy on March 30, 2018
  • I use lots of bins and a tall bookshelf, and in a perfect world everything would be organized according to color, or by project. Sometimes this is actually my reality, but more often than not it’s a creative mess! Still, it’s one of my favorite places!

    —Karen on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are in various containers by size or project.

    —Darlene on March 30, 2018
  • In organized bins by size and color. I hate rummaging through tiny scraps for a 5″ square, and getting large pieces for 2″ strips!

    —Nancy Magee on March 30, 2018
  • Not very organized but I have been folding and storing in small containers on shelving….also have some in big plastic bins on the floor plus on shelves in the closet.

    —Suzanne on March 30, 2018
  • I use plastic stacking drawers to organize my strips. 1 1/2″, 2″, 2 1/2″ each in their own drawer. And I use an old McCalls pattern cabinet to store all of my civil war fabrics. This book looks oh sew fun!!

    —Cindy on March 30, 2018
  • Book looks fantastic! I store scraps by color and size.

    —Donna W on March 30, 2018
  • I have some organized bins for larger ones but also bags of little scraps to use for dog beds.

    —Patricia Hale on March 30, 2018
  • Scraps are not organized at all! Just stuffed in tubs! Yikes!

    —Carina Z on March 30, 2018
  • I have no order for my scraps, I just know I can’t throw away them just in case I want a piece of the fabric again. This book looks like it would help with ideas and organization.

    —Debbie L on March 30, 2018
  • my fabrics that aren’t earmarked for a specific project are all sorted in clear bins by color. the pieces smaller than an 1/8th a little less so. they started out sorted in baskets in a large drawer, but I’ve outgrown that space in 3 short years of quilting and its become a big jumble I need to allow a day or two soon to straighten

    —Judy Palmer on March 30, 2018
  • My smaller scraps are sorted by size and my larger scraps are sorted by size in see through plastic boxes

    —Gossett Pat on March 30, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much, I go digging. Love the projects in this book.

    —Teri on March 30, 2018
  • Some scraps are stored by color others are in zip lock bags by project. Eventually they will be by color in plastic shoeboxes. I love anything I can get my hands on related to making quilts from scraps.

    —Nancy C on March 30, 2018
  • I store my scraps in stacking plastic bins sorted by color and size. When the bin is full, I challenge myself to make something. Scrap quilts are my favorite as the satisfy a deep urge to use up every last bit of fabric and they allow me to experiment with color and pattern. This looks like a great book and to win more scraps, swoon worthy!

    —LindaB on March 30, 2018
  • I’ve only been quilting for 3 1/2 years but I’ve quickly built an impressive stash. I have fat eighths, quarters, and yardage sorted by color but until recently, didn’t have enough strips/pieces to sort except by size. My next project needs to be sorting them all by color. Would love to win this, especially the book!

    —Cathy Wilson on March 30, 2018
  • I go digging. I wish I could be organized!

    —Vicki Allen on March 30, 2018
  • I try to organize my scraps by color and keep them in a hanging shoe organizer in the closet of my "sewing" room (the spare bedroom). It mostly works, but I’d love to use up most of them … to make room for more!

    —Sharon Vail on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are heaped in a bin! One of these days……

    —Louise on March 30, 2018
  • I have bins but also use shelves for bigger scraps. I love all things scrappy and this book looks sew amazing. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Renea on March 30, 2018
  • I have a couple of heaps: strings, other. Otherwise, the pieces are with larger chunks, neatly folded in drawers labelled by colour. I have 2 tallboy dressers of colours. I am beginning to understand how "color-coordinated quilts with lots of different fabrics" creates a beautiful scrap quilt.

    —Debbie on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are in a special box waiting for me to use them!

    —Diane Pfeifer on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted by color and currently stored in boxes. I have a wish for some day having the scraps sorted down a little more = jelly rolls, fat quarters, etc. and stored in clear plastic boxes.

    —Carol Koehn on March 30, 2018
  • I am a beginner at quilting.
    I can’t wait to get to the point that I can think about how to organize my fabrics.

    Teri on March 30, 2018
  • I have to store my scraps under the bed in plastic bins. My home in NH has all kinds of room: Attic, cellar, barn. However, here in Florida, no attic, no cellar and no barn – oh my. It’s ok, keeps me from going crazy at fabric stores.

    —Diane on March 30, 2018
  • Organized in bins by color. That’s as far as I go.

    —Allison C on March 30, 2018
  • My scraps are stored by size (squares are in white boxes and strips are in plastic drawers). I’m beginning to get overwhelmed with my scraps (as is my sewing room) so this book would be a wonderful and welcome addition for me! Thanks for offering the drawing!

    —Fran Simpson on March 30, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes and such. LOL, described perfectly!

    —Cindy S on March 30, 2018
  • Boxes and bags and drawers- hoping to be organized someday. Those are some great quilts- maybe I will win!

    —Rosalie on March 30, 2018
  • Organized? I wish. I put my scraps in a huge red wing crock in my sewing room

    —Carol on March 30, 2018
  • What does organized mean?

    —Danette Roundy on March 30, 2018
  • Half the fun of creating a new quilt is just going digging.
    Book and fabric are newly interesting.

    —Wren on March 30, 2018
  • How do you store your scrap fabrics?

    In organized bins, just like Lissa.

    —Darrell H on March 30, 2018

    —Cindy Petersen on March 30, 2018
  • I do organize my scraps in bins, but every now and then I become disorganized and need to rethink how I want to organize things. Love the scrappy patterns in this book…and the title, Oh Scrap!

    —Kristen on March 30, 2018
  • What a beautiful book! I store my fabric by color in plastic containers.

    —Vicki on March 30, 2018
  • I have sorted my scraps by size and ironed and stacked them ready to be cut into scrap qquilt blocks. These scrap quilts are just perfect for my stash.😊

    —Gail M on March 30, 2018
  • As a new quilter on a very tight budget I have to save every scrap. For me, my scraps are in packets according to quilts I have finished and stored in a drawer. Not enough yet to colour code or size code – but working on it.
    Thank you, I enjoyed reading Lissa’s Story.

    —Veronica on March 30, 2018
  • Scrap quilts are my favorite type. They embody the whole reason quilting began-making something beautiful and useful from leftovers.

    Sheilah on March 30, 2018
  • I have a lot of scraps — so have many clear plastic containers
    that are loosely organized by color. I do make an effort to
    keep it all neatly sorted — but……

    —Dorothy M on March 30, 2018
  • I use lots of scraps and organize them in bins by size.

    —Lillian K on March 30, 2018

    —Sylvia on March 30, 2018
  • I have plastic bags grouped by color. In big bins. Then by season. I have boxes of cuts 1 1/2 and up of strips. I have worked hard to stop buying fabric. I too have been making quilts for over 50 years. It is hard to stop.

    —Linda Christianson on March 30, 2018
  • I store my bigger pieces on wire shelving in the closet by color and the smaller pieces in boxes. No color order there, just a mix match of sorts. The book looks amazing.

    —Vickie on March 30, 2018
  • By color on shelves.

    —Mary on March 30, 2018
  • I sort into co-ordinated fabric, colours, left over squares & strips, small pieces and "other fabrics" – store in large plastic tubs. But when I’m actually creating something, things become somewhat more chaotic!

    —Annie Hedges on March 30, 2018
  • In tubs and also in a chest of drawers. They start out in colours but then get mixed up.

    —Karen on March 31, 2018

  • I sort into two boxes – one for brights and one for muted.

    —Sally on March 31, 2018
  • My scraps are in bins, bins and bins – all different sizes. This year I am on a mission to start scrappy and reduce the number of bins before I can go shopping for anything else!

    —Patricia Ludwiczak on March 31, 2018
  • Bins, boxes, ziplock bags. Some by color, some by size, some by fabric collection. BUT…they are mostly all together on a few shelves in a cupboard. Does that count as organized?

    —Caryn Goulden on March 31, 2018
  • my fabrics are stored in bins by color, unless they go in the bin for fat quarter bundles, or batiks, 30’s bin, or the "what do these go to?" bin. Scraps go in a big bin to be cut down, then stored in bags for each size square. I have 6″, 5″, 4″, 3 1/2″, 3″, 2 1/2″, 2″. Those all go in one bin. Then there is a bin for bags for strips, sorted according to size. Large pieces, like 4-5 yards, are on bolts on the shelf.And Xmas fabrics have their own bin, too.

    —Madeline Wallace on March 31, 2018
  • I use bins and shelves and closets and boxes, OH MY!
    Great book; thanks for the chance!

    —Karen on March 31, 2018

    —Sue on March 31, 2018

    —Kelly on March 31, 2018
  • I have my scraps stored by color in large bins, and small shelves, and boxes, and 3 dressers having 6 drawers each. I even have boxes or piles of fabric in the living, dining, and bedrooms. Mostly, these are works in progress. Someday I will use them up, but probably not until I buy more.

    —Linda Towers on April 1, 2018
  • My scraps are not organized!! So much I’d like to do. I love the beautiful quilts in your book.

    —Annette F. on April 2, 2018

    —Judy Miller on April 2, 2018
  • I haven’t a lot of scraps so they are all together in a plastic box.

    —Susan Ikin on April 2, 2018
  • Organized? Not so much. I just go digging and digging!

    —Cindy on April 2, 2018
  • My scraps are organized in several ways – 1. blocks cut to specific sizes are in storage labeled containers; 2. Half square triangles are stored according to size; 3. Strips of various lengths and widths are in a box ready to be sewn; 4. Odd sized scraps are in a box/plastic container until I decide how I will use them. I use all these pieces as leaders and enders until I get enough to put on the design wall and make a quilt etc. Not much is wasted or cut into scraps to stuff a pillow.

    —Marilyn Koestler on April 2, 2018
  • My scraps are kinda sorted in bags. Have a great day! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

    —Angela J Short on April 2, 2018

    —Bonnie Aho on April 3, 2018
  • I organize my scraps in clear plastic shoe boxes. I often find that I have more than one shoebox of certain colors, so I dump them into a larger clear tote.

    —Sally Matlock on April 3, 2018

    —Carol B on April 4, 2018
  • I start storing fabrics with bins, but there are always bins that are random. I cannot explain how that happens so I keep looking until I find what I need or just give up and buy some more fabric!
