    My promise is to never throw out a piece of material !!! no matter how small... I have bins here now and collecting... If I won't use them, then they will become PIFs!

    If you can find no one to pay it forward to, I would suggest filling up pillow cases with them....closing the ends and donating them to animal shelters.

    I keep everything that's 1.5" and larger. Everything else is trash in my world.

    I use about everything. I use tiny for little log cabin scrappies, and all the other bits go into stuffing for dog/cat/doll beds and bodies.

    If you have anything that is small and don't want it donate it to goodwill or some charity for others to use, there is no reason for it to go to waste. When I first started quilting I used the tiniest pits and drew around the little cardboard templates and sewed them up. Was glad to get the scraps at that time.

    Just think when you throw it in the trash you are throwing part of a cotton bole in the garbage! :wink: :!: :-)
