About three years ago I sorted out my Sewing Room, labelling drawers and boxes so I knew where everything was. But then I did loads more projects and everything got mixed up again.
During my recent "Spring clean" I came upon lots of labelled packs, fabrics I had gathered together for future projects etc. Amongst those I found this pack of strips ready to be made into a backing, I had even slipped a little note inside the pack with the dimensions it would end up as and a little sketch of the order in which to join the strips!
The strips all needed a good press because they had been folded away in the plastic bag for years!
But I pressed them, sewed them up and made just the right sized backing for another Boy Cot quilt I put together last week. More stash used up.
The quilt is sandwiched and ready for me to start hand quilting tomorrow when I am at my Patchwork Group meeting. The quilt has used up scraps from my stash too.
So, my tip is "Label your stash"!
