Where To Buy Scraps For Scrap Quilts

Quilting, Shopping!, Uncategorized February 6, 2017

For those of us who make scrap quilts finding enough scraps, in enough variety, is a big deal! When we find the scraps we need we hoard them, sleep with them, and guard them…or get a friendly feline friend to guard them for us.

It takes a long time to collect enough scraps, with enough range in color, texture, and value to create a scrap quilt if our only source of scraps is from our own sewing. While I personally save all of my scraps over an inch square for quilting and I save scraps and trimmings smaller than that for stuffing cat beds, I wouldn’t have near the quantity or variety of scraps necessary to make a scrap quilt, let alone multiple scrap quilts from my scraps alone. Which brings us to the important question of where to get scraps for scrap quilts.
