    How do you make fabric from scraps? Is there a tute somewhere?

    Those quilts/blocks are incredible. Absolutely love the last one. Could you show us how you do them?

    I will take some photos and show you how I make yardage. I will start a new thread and call it "How to Make Yardage With Scraps." It is so easy and so much fun, both to make and to see what you can do with the fabric you have created.

    With the increasing cost of new fabrics, why throw out scraps? If you can make a quilt with fabric purchased for about $5.00/yd, from your scrap pile, why go out and spend $10.00/yd for new fabric? Currently I have a postage stamp quilt on the go, using very small scraps I'd saved for several years.

    I love it. Great job. I love making something out of what others would throw away.

    Love your quilts. When I get up the nerve to open my scrap bin, I hope I do half as well.
