    DO a trade here on the board. Bet someone would trade those for something you need.

    I bought some pre-packaged strips of fabric that were about 1/2" inch or so. They were marketed as chenille so were not cheap. I gave a bunch to a couple of teenagers who were going to put them on jeans or whatever. I used the green ones for Christmas trees. You have to sew them on fabric then take a wire brush to fluff them out.

    I would love to see a picture of this quilt!

    I used to do this but caught hell from hubby this spring. Some the longer scraps put out for the birds got caught up in the lawn mower he claims. I find it hard to believe anything that could cut off a digit would be compromised by a strip of fabric. To keep peace in the household, I have refrained.
