My fabric room has been a big mess. I keep scraps of fabric from everything. When I first started quilting, I even bought a couple of bags of scraps - and I still have some of those! My scraps have been in bags and boxes and were totally disorganized and thus underused. I decided to see if I could organize them. What a chore!

Drawer two has pre-pieced bits - some of those needed ironing too as they somehow got in scrap bags.

I read how in Victoria Findlay Wolfe's book, "15 Minutes of Play." (Link goes to Amazon - not an affiliate link) She also has a video on her tutorials page -which I confess I haven't watched. Just scroll down and look for "Y Seams"
