|1/4 of these fabrics are from a store scrap bin|
Of the 6 quilt stores that I go to at least twice a year, 3 have a great scrap program, 2 are low key and 1 has no program that I'm aware of.
Two of the stores sell scraps buy the ounce - the variety and amount of scraps changes every time I visit. One of the stores has an overflowing bin to pick thru and you pay by the inch. The other two stores sell gallon zip lock bags full of scraps (and they are stuffed!) for ~$6. Some bags are themed and some are random. While I like being able to pick my scraps, the bags are a much better deal!
A couple weeks ago I bought 2 bags at the store farthest from me. This is what was left after I started cutting in to them and remembered I should take a photo. There are WOF strips, layer cakes and random shapes. I bet there was at least 3 yards of fabric when I started - not bad for $12.
Sew...tell me...have you succumbed to the scrap bins at your LQS for a fabric fix?
