So here is a question for you....
When you are going to cut a smallish piece of fabric (for applique or a small project) out of piece of fabric from your stash where do you start? I am talking about regular cuts of fabric, anywhere from 1/4 yard on up. My issue is preserving the 'best' piece for future projects.
- Do you cut all the way across one selvage end at your largest measurement? This preserves a large section but reduces the length of any strips you cut in the future.
- Do you work your way across one edge? Keeping the longer strip sections intact but making the whole thing narrower.
- Do you whack away and worry about the scraps later?
