The scrap bin is overflowing -- to the extent I bought another one, which is now filled to overflowing!
Top level of scrap bin:
I decided to set my trusty kitchen timer to 23 minutes and cut scraps for that length of time. After two 23-minute sessions, I haven't made a dent in the scrap bin!
I cut my scraps into 5", 4.5", 3.5", 2.5", 2", and 1.5" squares, and 2.5" and 1.5" strips. I know some people sort their scraps by color, but I find I rarely make a scrap quilt of a specific color. So I sort mine by size.
Today, however, I am keeping the purple scraps aside. My next Scrap Squad quilt will be purple!
Since no 52 Quilts blog post is complete without a photo of a quilt, here is one from way back -- the 14th quilt I pieced in 2010. It's called "Line Art," by Brenda Henning.

I hope you'll come back tomorrow and see my (I hope) big pile o' scraps that I cut today!
