    At my quilt group on Friday, the lady next to me was going to throw a scrap of fabric away (the blue and purple scrap in the pic)! I said 'I'll have that!' She looked at me like I was nuts and said 'why don't you go through the bin as well?' 'Oh good, idea said I': she said she was joking and all the other ladies started laughing as I started rooting through the bin, but look what I found! So I made this block and will continue to do this until I have enough to piece together and then take it to show them what they threw away! :D

    I'll show 'em the error of their ways!

    With the price of fabric here in France, they shouldn't be throwing this away!

    Their loss, your gain! I think it's a great idea to show them what you can do with the scraps, but on the other hand Ruth Camp definitely has a point on keeping quiet.

    I'd already thought of that! At first, I thought I'd take the block to show them, but I'll wait til I've got a quilts worth! LOL
