Ready for the new year

Last year my resolution was to use more fabric than I bought because my stash was quite large.  I have done well at keeping that one.  In 2011 I want to get more organized and give away things I will not use again.  
I have spent some time the past few days organizing quilt patterns I hope to use and scraps of fabric.  I seldom throw away any scraps so they just seem to grow.  Everywhere I look I find more.  I sorted strips into bins if they were a consistent 2 ½” or 1 ½”.  I sorted irregular shaped scraps according to color and tone.  Now I 'm ready for the new year.
After sorting I decided to create some  more crumb blocks.  It is easy for me to play with triangles and create half-square triangles that are free formed with triangles of different sizes; but when I put them into stars or churn dash blocks, I still want to match the points in the center of the 9 patch.  Here are a few created in the past day or two.

Have a happy New Year and keep quilting !
