Would you believe my friend throws these scraps out? She pays 10-13 bucks a yard and will dump large pieces. Go figure! Anyway, I "dumpster dive" at her house through her scrap piles and make all kinds of things. Here's my latest one. I quilted the wall hanging on my Ellisimo instead of her long arm.

Teri, This is very pretty! You did a great job with this. I hate to admit but I waste my scraps also but I usually waste them on myself. I use them to do dry runs on a design that I have never sewn or to play with several designs I want to put together on a piece. I always try out monograms on old scraps before I sew the real thing also. I would never just toss them.

Beautiful work and fabrics. How nice to have a friend who shares her lovely scraps with you. I love to 'dumpster dive', too! LOL
Thank you for sharing with us!

What a neat use of the found treasure trove!! People give me scraps & I just can't throw them out...but I think I MAY be a collector instead of sewer!! Yipes!

Very nice - and your friend must be a quilter??? - or scraps would not be thrown away - but you did say she has a long arm - so she must quilt. But, all the better for you - and what fun to dumpster dive at a friends house.

Her trash is your treasure! I'd dumpster dive at her house too, what a waste that would have been! It is very pretty!

Great job using your friend's leftovers, wish I had a friend like that. This would also make a nice table runner if it fits your decor.
