I think I've pointed out my scrap fabric can that is a clean trash can. I put it beside my cutting table and drop in smallish pieces.
This is a Friendship Braid quilt that I'm making for her using my scraps.
A tip for making a successful scrap quilt out of a pile of fabrics is to sort them first into dusty colors and clear colors. This is usually a better way to design a quilt, grouping like hues.
