Mama Always Said, 'Waste Not, Want Not,'

I do not know about any of my readers or bloggers, but if you are a crafter or quilter like I am, sooner or later you come to something you must cut up and leave a huge chunk behind that you have no use for.

I have this problem when making quilts, no matter how closely I try to fit all my batting, I wind up with large chunks that someone could probably use for a smaller project but no matter how hard I try, they never fit any of my projects!

I have at least 10 various pieces of Warm & White batting in various sizes from small to larger and I have a few really large pieces as well. Some would be perfect for using in rag quilts, runners, purses or small pillows and maybe a small wall quilt.

If you would be interested in spending some money to save some money, let me know what size you are looking for and the price you want to spend for it along with shipping costs (should be under $3) and send me a money order and out the door it goes.

If you have something you would like to barter with, I might be interested in that as well. I could sell it on Ebay, but why pay them the fees and make you pay the fees, when I can probably get it all out the door here.

Contact me via my blog or email me at compassionatequilter-at-rocketmail-dot-com and we will work something out.

Like momma always said, waste not, want not!

I wish I had read this earlier, just purchased 20 yards today. I do have a question for you, where did you find your don't be shy comments icon? I love it.

You can sew them together to make pieces big enough to use on a quilt.

Marie, you are right of course, but many are to small. I also have a bolt of cotton batting!
