    Mostly I put them in the closet and they multiply.

    It depends on the size of the scrap. Sometimes I just pitch them.

    I used some odd sized ones to tie up my tomato and pepper plants this year.

    If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I wish I had some ice cream.

    Before I ever started quilting, I got strip scraps from my mom and tied them around a wire wreath form (one with four rows of wire) It now hangs on an old window frame in my family room.

    I use a lot of my trimmings and very small scraps to stuff pet beds/cushions which I then donate to a favorite pet shelter.

    I just started making the toothbrush rugs. Fun, but take a lot of time. Ido them watching tv. They also use tons of fabric but wof strips work the best. I pieced some 2"x5" to make a strip. I hope the machine sewing doesnt come apart.

    My scraps are sorted by strips AND block sizes. I do not consider them to be scraps but quickies when free styling quilting which I do often.
