    I often use the left overs in another quilt or to wrap around my rope bowls.The rest are randomly stitched together for charity quilts.

    This method has been taught by Bonnie Hunter (Quiltville) for years. You will be surprised how fast those "twoies" add up. I then make a 4-patch, and save them for future use.

    What a fantastic idea. And here I have been using leaders and enders and just ending up with little wads of mostly flannel with muchos thread in them and then throwing those away. My "depression years" upbringing failed me on this one.
