When I was preparing to travel for 5-6 months in 2019, and condensing my stash down to fit in 75 square feet, I started a new habit for organizing my scrap batting. Every time I trim my quilts when I’m basting, I make note of the larger scrap sizes and write their size down on a sticky note that gets stored with that particular piece of scrap batting.
I’m getting close to finishing up my sample quilt for my upcoming Diatom Quilt Along, and so I added a few large pieces of scrap batting to my storage over the weekend.
I like using larger post it note sizes to note the batting sizes, because if I ever cut out a piece of that batting, I can easily mark out the old size and write down the new size of the trimmed down batting for easy future reference.
Be sure to read the comments; the community is generous with other ideas for how to take this organizational method further!
