Battle of the batting (Sunday)

You know all those scraps of batting that you cut off??? Well, when the pile gets too high, it's time to use them. I will be able to get at least 3 quilts from all the batting scraps. When they get too small to use, I donate them to a church.

And it being Sunday morning I baked bread, cinnamon rolls with chopped apples. They "we're" good, but now gone. I just might have to do it again this Sunday. Did you know that you could use parchment paper as a lining. Clean up is a breeze!

I have been steadily making small spool blocks with no project in mine. Just enjoying the process of making them and adding them to the drawer. I average about ten an evening on a work night. This makes a nice gentle ending of the day ahhhhhhhh!

  1. Just curious--what does the church do with the small batting scraps?
    I use mine for sample sandwiches to practice quilting, but I don't quilt on a longarm.
    Cinnamon rolls look delicious! Years ago a caterer friend gave me a huge pack of parchment and told me to use it whenever I baked cookies, rolls, quick breads, cakes, etc. I don't always remember to use it in everything, but when I do, it sure makes clean-up a breeze!

  2. HI, I made 9 kids quilt batts that way. still have a huge trash bag full of batting scrapps. so will be putting more together some day. used some for QSC kids quilts and some for local guild charity. happy quilting
