I'm coming back to the experts for more advice. I'm sorting a huge box of scraps that came from my grandmother's house. There are very few selvages, so I don't know the content on most of them, but some are 100% cotton. Some are very thick, almost like denim, while some are very thin, like a ladies summer blouse. Some are so thin that I don't know if I can use them, sort of a gauzy type material. I'm pretty sure most of them have some cotton content. Everything has been washed and I'm in the process of pressing it all.
My question is, should I leave out the thinnest pieces? I want to make something that can be used, so I want to use durable fabrics. But some thin fabrics are just as durable as the thicker ones.
Also, should I eliminate anything that is too stretchy or too stiff? I plan on either making random scraps or possibly tumbler or pyramid charm quilts.
Thanks in advance,
