What are you most proud of? That it is 'Pretty" :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As I make a quilt - I put all my scrap pieces into a special box. Then (usually once a year) I go through and cut the pieces into squares - which varies from 2.5" to 10". I keep the like kind in containers and use these 'squared' scraps for when I need pieces for applique, paper-piecing, or a 'scrap' quilt much like the one you see here. (see the picture of part of my 'stash' WHEEPEE!!! :-) :-)

OK, so now I don't feel at all guilty about the size of my stash! You win!! I am impressed at how organized you are. I think it's time to give some thought to organizing the sewing room.

I love the 'pixelated' effect you have created. Also, the love you have quilted into this 'pretty' quilt will surely permeate the user... (Great stash sorting/using tip too - thanks)
