    Hey, whatever works. Sometimes you gotta just do it.

    What a darling quilt. My sister just gave me 2 boxes of scrubs and I plan to cut them up and use them in our church ministry quilts.

    Most I find are 100% cotton--I always check the labels. If they are a cotton/poly blend I do not buy them. I recently found two large Laurel Birch scrub jackets--Score!!--for $4 each. Each jacket will provide about 1 1/2 yards of fabric.

    What a wonderful way to recycle. And a perfect place for an old scrub to end up.

    Great idea! You are very clever to have thought of how to re-purpose the cotton scrubs with the cute patterns. It's adorable.

    Very cute ;) hope it was gently used...

    We have one big thrift shop where almost everything is gently used. I always check for wear and stains on everything I buy at any thrift shop--and I rarely if ever find a tear or stain on anything in this store. Most of the scrubs that I buy look nearly brand new. I am so grateful to have this store nearby.
