    Hmmm, you've given me yet another idea. I will never get to the end of the quilts I want to make.

    Don't forget that really small scraps can go in an old pillowcase to use for pet beds to donate to animal shelters. Put these into a fleece covering and put Velcro on ends of fleece so you can take inside out to wash.

    Can't wait to read your tutorial on how to make fabric from scraps, because I have tried and tried and just cannot get the hang of it. I have long pieces and short pieces and end up cutting things smaller and smaller which sort of defeats the purpose.

    You just gave me a very good idea of what to do with my scraps. Your quilt is going to be awesome.
