I got a parcel in the post yesterday from Ebony Love (quilt designer) after she decided to offer fabrics from her 'orphans' pile which included lots of triangles, a bag of strips and blocks that she had acquired but no longer had time to use, so now I've got to decide what to do with it all. I love getting scraps from other quilters. On a guild retreat I took everything bar the kitchen sink with enough fabric for a quilt or purses and lots of other options because I'd never been there before and didn't know what to start first. Yet I spent two days making mobile phone holders from 4.5 x 1 inch scraps someone had threatened to throw in the trash. What!!! No! Wait!...
I made three mobile phone holders, gave one to my scrap doner, one to someone else, and kept one for me. I love scraps.

    I just received a package of "scraps" recently too. All I did was send postage - they are all pressed and in a pile - I am going to cut them into 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 inch squares (I love Bonnie K. Hunter patterns). If there are any pieces long enough to cut some 2.25 inch strips, I may do some of those too to use for bindings on scrappy quilts. I save all my leftover bindings to sew together for bindings on my scrappy quilts and it will be nice to add to them.
