    Should I save what you call crumbs? And what do I do with them? Or is there a place to donate them?

    GO up to the top of the page, click on 'search' and enter 'crumbs'. You'll find lots of info here. This Board is great for info. If you decide you don't want to use them you could probably sell them on here, too.

    I love working with crumbs. you don't have to make sure that they all match or are cut Just right. just sew them toghter and make new fabric out of them and they you can sew them together into a quilt of many colors.

    I usually do the type like log cabin starting with a little piece in the middle and moving around with large or small strips, if they aren't in strips I cut them into strips, when I think they are big enough I square them up into the size I wanted. It is really fun doing these crumbs.
