This week, I worked on my stash. I finished cutting up and sorting a paper grocery sized bag of scraps that were in no order at all. Most of organization in general consists of sorting "like things together". The scraps are now sorted into shoe boxes of squares. Most of them are either 2.5 x 2.5 or 1.5 x 1.5, both are sizes I use often for small quilts.
Other new "alike groups" were triangles and small strips - strips set aside for a log cabin quilt, and triangles to sew together as leaders and enders for future half square triangles.
Here are pictures of the boxes of my "parts factory" for small quilts:
1 3/4 in. x 1 3/4 in. squares.......1 1/4 in. x 1 1/4 in.........1 in. x 1 in. squares
We were at the cabin this weekend, and the tundra swans were coming through Michigan on their migration back to Alaska from the Chesapeake Bay on the east coast. They are beautiful, and the sound of their bugling calls during the night is like nothing else. I marvel at their sounds, their beauty, and that they migrate so far. They spent the weekend "bottoms up" in front of our place, feeding on the vegetation in the lake. There were several Canada geese there also, but they aren't as noisy.

There are two more Mondays in March after today, and I am determined to have something new on my design wall by April. Meanwhile, the Valentine Quilt is still there for now.
