My quilting instructor was making a wall hanging and ran out of fabric. She got in her garbage can and dug out all the trimmings that she'd had to do (some of them almost 1"but sewn to another fabric and cut at an angle) and incorporated them into the border---a few sewn together at a time---in a random fashion, they weren't in the same place on any side. The result was STUNNING!!! It looks very unique, extreme difficult and totally original. Me? I throw out anything less that 1" square. I don't do snippets, I don't do art quilts, I don't do the artsy fiber stuff and I've got so much fabric that I just don't want all that laying around. I have been keeping a stash of selveges though, I'd like to make a string quilt with them.
