Last week’s QM Shorts post about using batting scraps generated some comments on opposite ends of the opinion spectrum. Here are two.
From Regina: “As someone who…uses batting scraps for purse handles and other small crafties—I am cringing at the size of the scrap in your trash can.”
And from Cindy: “I can’t keep every bit of quilting leftovers so I draw the line at batting scraps. In the trash they go.”
Do you see the humor? One person is cringing because she feels I’m throwing away scraps that are too large—they might still be useful. The other is saying there’s no way she would save scraps of batting—way too much trouble.
I can see both sides but the point I want to make here is that there is room in the quilting world for both ways of thinking!
This is not the Marine Corps (thank goodness!), it’s Quilting! There is space for each person to hold his or her own opinion on a variety of quilty topics. We can all respect each other and learn from each other.
Aren’t we lucky to be part of the world of quilting?!
