Today I just have a question. I have been sewing a lot. Which means I have a LOT of fabric scraps.
What do you do with them all? Of course the ones that are at least 1/4 of a yard I put back on the shelf but all the other little bits. Tell me what you do.

Cut them into lumberyard sizes and make scrap quilts.
Lol. Lumberyard sizes. But I knew exactly what you meant!
The Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild will be selling donated fabric at its May meeting. You could send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. All proceeds from the sale will go to SAFEHouse, The Domestic Violence Project of Washtenaw County.
Skinny ones become garden ties. If I can get a 4×4 square out of it, sachets or quilts. If not, natural fibers get composted, and everything else is stuffing.
The Great British Sewing Bee just did a great episode on re-using all the scraps that sewists accumulate while making other projects. It was all about matching colours and patterns to sew together to make a new set of fabric. Hope that makes sense!
I wish I could watch that show! It sounds so fabulous!
