    What a great idea! I always hesitate because I'm afraid there will be a gap, but this might prevent that. Thanks!

    Anything smaller than a few feet gets cut down to Dolly Quilt size, then put into a box just for that. Really small pieces gets saved for my thimble. I like it snug so I wrap a bit around my finger before I put it on.

    I am using my leftover batting for a small wall hanging. I was wondering about how to join the pieces together. So not I have some ways to do that. Thank you

    What about some Christmas decorations with some of the smaller pieces. I gave some of the small pieces to the school or church for the art department. They used some for snow on there pictures, or as snowmen. Kids have a great imagination.

    :oops: :oops: :oops: I have to confess to wasting a lot. The smallest I use is 12" for lap quilting and I have never tried to put 2 pieces together. I have gotten a lot of ideas from this thread!! :D
