Organizing the New Year – Scrap Busting Quilt Ideas

Easy Scrap Busting Quilt ideas to organize the New Year and clean out your fabric scrap stash.

Getting organized to start your new year off fresh is an important step in making the most out of your quilting.

After your room is tidy and all your fabrics are neatly labeled, what can be done with the stash of scraps that you’ve been stockpiling?
