I found a way to use up my scraps as is - no pre-cutting, no light and dark organizing - just put two pieces together and go!
Yes, I'm finally making Amanda Jean's, of Crazy Mom Quilts fame, Scrap Vortex Quilt.
Minimum set up was required. I moved my bins of scraps over to my sewing table; one on top and one on the bin that sits under the table (it holds projects and medium size pieces of batting)
Then I lowered my ironing board to the same height as my sewing table so I could just swivel back and forth in my chair to iron.
Pieces made during Step 1.
Pieces made at end of first scrap sewing session.
I didn't plan to keep going with Step 2 and joining pieces made together, but once I started it was fun to get back in touch with these fabrics!
It's not enough blocks for a quilt, but I still have lots of scraps left! Plus, there are three more steps in the quilt along ;)
I feel like I just took the pressure off myself to *do* something with my scraps. I'm really happy with how it's going so far and plan to make some time to do some more Step 1 piecing soon!

Do you have a scrap quilt in progress?
