I fell in love with the idea of this project, where you sew scraps together into strips, then sew solid fabrics to either side of those strips, and arrange the new blocks to look like a forest of birch trees. I went through my scrap bin and cut up snippets measuring 2.5 inches wide by varying lengths.
I decided I needed to make some new storage cubes to hold my new pile of snippets, separate from my scrap bin.
These storage cubes are so fun and quick to make, and quite handy to have around.
Now I can just reach into one of these cubes to easily pick out random snippets to piece my birch tree forest together. Should be a fun project to work on here and there, when I have small chunks of time to sit at my sewing machine.

Amanda Jean always has such fun scrap ideas! Love your basket for holding them!
Sweet baskets – I can see they would be useful for so many things.
The patchwork one is just the cutest!! Glad to see you had some fun!
I love that idea – I can’t wait to see how yours turns out 🙂
Those are do cool! They’d also make unique gift boxes with a top and toggle!
Oooo I love the storage bins, sooo adorable!
that is one of my favorite of Amanda Jean’s projects. SUCH an awesome idea. And your snippets and the storage bins look awesome!
Hi Terri wanted to pass this blog along about quiliting.
Great quilt idea and I love the little cubes!
Hi Terri! Both projects are great! That quilt is going to be wonderful and unique and those boxes are really lovely way to keep our treasure scraps!
Enjoy your sewing!
I love all these little fabric containers you are making. I think the patchwork one is my favorite. Now I don’t know which tutorial to try first…….
