All right, so with a new quilt shop in town (after being without one--nearby, anywhere--for nearly 9 months, I haven't quite declared a moratorium on buying new fabric. (I'll have you know that a friend and I went to a closing sale at shop 30 miles away, and I didn't buy even a scrap of fabric!) However, having learned some Kaizen principles (small steps--very small steps) I sat down with one of my strips bins today to sort into light, medium, and dark strips for a scrap project I have in mind. Now, a Kaizen-sized step would be get down the bin and find bags for the sorted strips. I out-did myself and sorted the entire bin.
I expect to be making some changes in the sorting, especially moving from the medium pile to either the light or dark, but it will do until I pull out a ruby beholder.
The next step is cutting some muslin for the foundations, then do some stripping. I have a picture in my mind's eye, which may or may not be how it manifests in reality. We'll see. I'll keep you posted!
