    Pot holders....lots of pot holders. A good way to audition a block and fabrics.
    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.

    I heard they are excellent for getting the dust off the dashboard in your car. I keep meaning to try that but always forget.

    For people who make pet beds, the smaller pieces work great for stuffing them. I save the larger strips & sew them together with a zig zag stitch to make either practice sandwiches for FMQ or for smaller projects.

    The long skinny strips I use for the padding in the handles for tote bags. Otherwise I chop them in small pieces (polyester batting) with the rotary cutter and use it to stuff pillows

    I just read about one way to quilt as you go is to quilt each square then connect them together. You can always use these smaller pieces that way.
    Also, if you have a pet, you could use the batting pieces to fill up a dog/cat bed.
