ROL Blocks Progress

I've got about 1/2 of the ROL blocks completed (the stack on the right). Another dozen are sewn together and need to be trimmed. There are about 20 blocks in the stack on the left that need the extra side sashing pieces.
These have been matched already and are waiting to be sewn together.

I really don't like my present method of organizing leftover bits of fabric. Right now they're more or less organized by size of scrap, but that isn't very consistent, and as I have been going through them for this quilt, I've been really frustrated.

So I've decided to organize them by color. That's how I've got everything else organized, so it should be much easier. To that end I've ordered some clear plastic storage boxes from The Container Store. I already use them for my "chunk" storage, and I like them very much. They have clear lids and are easy to open. They stack nicely and come in a wide variety of sizes.

I can't wait.

I am feeling the need to organize my scraps too. Right now they are one huge jumble. Color seems the best way. I'll be watching to see how your organizing turns out.

It looks like it is coming along nicely. There is definitely a lot to be said for proper organization.
