Yes, I have a lot of scraps because I make a ton of charity quilts to give away. The ends of the backings get cut into squares and strips. This alone creates a lot. Some people give me small pieces--I use them. I've been known to cut up cotton dresses as well. I've quit collecting jeans, though--I have a full box of 6" squares that I am not sure what to do with--I want to make a rag quilt, but the thought of all that trimming hurts my hand!
