I am starting to save these to give away but I'm not sure how small is too small.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Remember to subtract 1/2" for seam allowance. I probably wouldn't use anything smaller than 1.5" To me, it is just another type of crazy quilting. Good Luck ! No rules either !!
A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort
Anything smaller than 3/4" is no good. It all depends on how small you want to work with. My limit is the smallest.

How are they going to be used? A lot of folks use the tiny scraps to stuff pet beds. In this case, there's probably no 'too small'. If they are going to be used in blocks, like a crumb quilt, then 3/4" would leave you with 1/4" useable.

I have no clue how they'll be used. I was about to throw away a bunch of small scraps after using a sizzix die and thought maybe people wanted them. That's why I want to know what to save. I don't want anyone paying postage for something that they can't end up using.
Maybe it would just be easier to toss it all.
Never thought about pet beds for rescue nice idea.
I save ALL scraps!! I get old pillowcases stuff one- takes quite some time! When full as i want, i stitch close. use other case for cover. i hate to waste!!!!!
