    Today I went to my LQS, so far so good. As intended, I bought the fabric for a quilt my MIL will receive as her Christmas gift.
    While she was cutting fabric and we were chatting, I told the owner, I'm planning on making a scrap quilt for charity one day, although my husband thinks I lack the time (and I KNOW I'm lacking the fabric). As a newbie, I don't have a huge stash, or let's face the truth, I don't have a stash at all. But then something miraculous happened: She passed me a paper bag full of scraps she wanted to toss. Lucky me I was there to save them, and now I am one happy camper :). Although it's not enough for a scrap quilt, it's a kind of a serious beginning, what do you think? I'd really love to pay it forward, b/c I think I'm blessed with my kids, my husband, everything.

    Am I insane feeling like a kid in the candy store with my bag of fabric goodies? Kinda crazy, huh?

    Not crazy at all! Just think how happy you are going to make someone else with those scraps! Pay it forward.

    I'd go with the "Or what" part of your question! :lol: You are certainly NOT insane! I get giddy about fabric, too. Especially when I get a good deal (or free!!) :-D

    That's a great quilt store story. And, no, you are not crazy.

    not crazy at all. I think all of us here would be just as excited if we had received the same gift. Pay it forward either by giving your scraps away or by starting your scrap quilt and finishing it when you come across more. either way you will get a lovely since of acheivment.

    Just the fact that you are planning to make a charity quilt from the scraps means you have already made a down-payment on your "pay it forward." Just keep adding to your collection until you have enough, then go for it.
