What I have been doing to get my fabric under control

This summer when the weather has been distracting to my working on my projects, I’ve instead been on a campaign to organize my scraps of fabrics to make them more usable for a later time.
I’ve been stashing my scraps of bits and pieces in containers as I’ve been making quilts.
I have gone through containers,(we all have these, right!)and I separate the pieces that are large enough to actually do things with. I was figuring I could make loads of half square triangles, flying geese etc.

From this point, which actually looks like a big clutter, I have organized the fabrics to look like this

The longer strips that I found in my containers I’ve decided can be used as borders or bindings, so I’m leaving those as is .
Loads more to dig through, and I’m figuring this will be an ongoing project.
I will at a future time update you on what I end up making with all these lovely scraps.
