    I spent 4 hours messing in my sewing room today! I had 2 full totes of scrap batting that was getting out of control! I tamed one tote. Pieced my scrap batting together and got enough batting for 8 charity baby quilts.

    So how many tame their batting scraps or what do you do with them?

    Yup, I do the same thing. And the little pieces I use for smaller projects.

    If I don't have any small things planned, like pot holders, etc, I will piece them together too. If they are really small I save them for pillow stuffing.

    You can cut it up into much smaller pieces (with your rotary cutter) and use it for stuffing pillows, toys, etc.

    Deedum, I also piece the smaller sections together for charity quilts or tablerunners. It's just another way for quilters to be resourceful!!! :)

    I gathered all mine into one tote and will use the pieces to do all the placemats I am making for Christmas.

    I used mine to make pincushions. I don't like to piece batting for quilts.
