Like most of us I too have a big pile of scraps. I've been collecting for years not knowing what I'd do with them but not being able to throw them away either. Now that I have my embroidery machine I've been using them for the appliques.
Yesterday I dumped out part of them and started sorting them into different piles according to sizes. I'll put the smaller ones back to use for future appliques and I think I'll send the bigger pieces to my daughter. She has a GO and can cut me a bunch of half square triangles. I've been wanting to make a scrap quilt for awhile but don't want to have to cut out all those triangles by hand. Hopefully she won't mind
