    My sister's company throws away fabric. I know it is bit and pieces. Now I need to buy a book on how to make a scrappy quilts. All the fabric is 100% cotton. :-P

    I cut what I could save this is what I will end up with I have a whole trash bag full to do.

    good for you! I love scrappy quilts and these fabrics should make good ones.

    BTW, I use 'dead' bedsheets, some of which I buy at thrift stores, to use as scrappy foundations, since I am allergic to dryer sheets. sometimes I use batting scraps, which make a good basis for fancy machine stitches.

    That is the site I was going to tell her to use---don't need a book for a long time. She has loads of good patterns to use scraps with. Love her site.
