Here is a picture of the pile of scraps that my friend gave me when I asked if she had any "darks" in her scraps that she wouldn't mind parting with. We were both at our summer homes and I was working on a this scrappy log cabin and called her one evening (I didn't have all my "scraps" or stash to pull from with me). She said oh yes, I have a tub full you can have. I drove right over and was thrilled with her scraps. I ended up making two log cabins, just haven't quilted the second one. Of course, I added a lot of mine but really needed hers for the darks, doesn't look like it here but there were a lot of them.
