SCRAPS - yes we all have them. In fact it's a given that if you are a quilter you are quickly going to build up a scrap stash. Don't know about you but we aren't like those brave souls who can just toss their fabric scraps in the bin. We keep every tiny little scrap because you never know when you might just need that teeny tiny piece of fabric to fill in a spot. So we have a number of easy projects with full tutorials that will help you to clear up at least some of that scrap stash.
