在上周六的购物之旅中，我确定去了Cheapie Charlie 's，买了一打塑料篮子，两种尺寸，把我的废旧织物按颜色分类。然而，直到昨天，我才有机会从世界上最粘稠的标签上取下它们，并把它们放进去。尽管有一度担心我低估了篮子的数量和大小，但结果真的很好:
As I guessed they might, blues, greens and white/cream/neutrals vastly outnumber all the other colours, so I suppose I’ll be doing a blue scrap quilt next. Other colour groups I chose were red, orange, yellow, brown, pink, purple, grey and black, plus one basket for very mixed prints that refused to fall obediently into any specific colour group. I also threw away a fair bit of volume in terms of really ratty old wadding that was still attached to the trimmed edges of previous quilts and the really super-tiny scraps or ultra-skinny strings that I honestly couldn’t see myself doing anything with. I’m sure some fabrics ended up appearing in more than one colour grouping, but that’s ok. I’ll either re-sort if necessary or they’ll add a nice bit of variation.
