There's a shop near me called Swansons that is a salvage fiber arts shop. Fiber artists donate their unwanted stash (fabric AND yarn) and they resell it to the public super cheap. It is a dream come true for me! I take yardage there that I haven't cut into for years (and am therefore unlikely to ever cut into) and swap it for bags of quilting cotton scraps. The owner tells me I'm doing the world a service by taking other people's scraps, but I'll take a bag of scraps over a yard of one fabric any day! The bags of scrap fabric are called "Hot Garbage" but the contents are the furthest thing from garbage - those bags contain TREASURE!
I used some of those scraps finishing up this Scrappy Trips quilt that I'm now binding for a friend who recently had surgery:
I used some of those scraps to make my April Bee Blocks:
I'm using the green and red scraps to make a non-traditional holiday/Christmas quilt using the Stashbuster 2022 pattern from Border Creek Station:
And I am using those scraps to start a new Quarter Log Cabin quilt:
I wish this weekend weren't at an end - all I want to do is sew! I'm linking up with Oh Scrap and Monday Making.
