Since I'm new to quilting, and I know how expensive fabric is...I posted on my local freecycle board looking for anyone willing to part with scraps for me to practice on. One lady offered me a bag of her "scraps" and when I picked it up off her porch, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn't just scraps. I must have walked away with 20+ yards of different fabrics. Some only a a few inches, but others had a few yards. Not all of them are patterns I would have chosen myself, but hey...it was free and it's for practice!
Just had to share!
