I use the really small pieces for doggie beds for the shelter, anything else that is bigger I use for crumb quilts or scrappies quilts!

I'm working on one of Bonnie Hunters scrap quilts now, Spider web. You could make 10 quits and never put a dent in that scrap pile.

I probably have 4 more bags just like it in the garage. With the rumors of the prices of cotton going up, maybe I'll end up making ALL scrappy quilts in the future. :shock:

What pretty scraps! :) You lucked out and could have lots of fun with these. I would make a crumb quilt with them. Let us know what you decide on.

Looks like you could trim some of them to strips and sew them together. Then use them to cut out borders or squares etc.
