Scrap quilts

I've been packing up fabrics in my workroom this evening and there are still scrap baskets from the last three books - taupes, Japanese cottons and assorted prints. Playing around with scraps to make scrap quilts is something I really enjoy, and the more random the better! Here are several made over the last few years. I'll post pics of the next one when it's done - at least the top :-)

The last one was made with dressmaking scraps from the 1970s and 80s.

Work in progress on the quilt above -

What do you do with your scraps?

I'm not very good at using scraps and am always delighted when someone begs me for my selvedges or little bits so that I don't feel so guilty (and can go fabric shopping again).
