When the scrap box is overflowing make a scrappy quilt .
This is made from pieces that might otherwise be thrown out because they match nothing and are too small and of an odd shape to do anything with .
I seldom throw out scraps.
I have started to do bits of embroidery and adding lace to turn it from an ugly duckling into a swan .
It would never win a competition but I like it . I suppose that is all that matters .
