    I just started cutting fabric squares for a rag quilt, and found in a box some smaller pieces of batting left over from several quilts. I don't know why I saved these odd-shaped pieces of batting, but must have thought I would find a use for them someday. I was able to cut the 90 squares of batting that I needed for this quilt from basically leftover batting! Thought I would pass on the idea to my fellow quilters.

    I do the same thing. I save my batting leftovers especially for rag quilts.

    I have never heard of that before, so what do you do after you cut them. Do you sew them together or what?
    Thanks,

    I keep my larger scraps of batting, because I machine baste them together to use in miniatures, wall hangings and table runners. I use the smaller scraps in potholders, pincushions, etc.
