    what does everyone do with their "trash" scraps????????
    I read somewhere about putting them in a pillowcase for pet beds. I'm donating these to the vet we take the boys too

    I've thought the same thing when I've looked down into mine. :D

    Love your bowtie WIP. Looking forward to seeing it with the border on; know it'll be beautiful!

    My family makes so much fun of me. I waste very little fabric.

    First all "scraps" go into a bin beside my cutting table. Periodically I go through and cut it into 2" squares for a scrap quilt.

    Then I cut what's left into 1 1/2" SQUARES. That is as small as I go that way.

    I have another basket that weird shaped pieces go and those I use for a mini quilt.

    Then all of those strips from squaring up your fabric. I wrap clothesline rope with the strips then zigzag around making either a rug or a basket.

    I'll attach some pictures of wips.

    You can make fun of me too. You will be in good company. You have beautiful trash!!!

    If you hang the little pieces on tree branches, the birds can use them for their nests. Love the bow ties.
