I checked the boards to see where to post this, and this is the lucky "candidate". I'm looking for another name for fabric scraps; for a class I'm going to teach. Can anyone give me some ideas?

I don't remember if it was Sew News or Threads magazine (I take both) that had an article where they called scraps "chicken nuggets". The idea was that they are the pieces of fabric left over because you were "chicken" to trust the amount the pattern called for and bought extra. Don't know if you were looking for humor in this case.

aren't some quilters calling their scrappy quilts made with very very little bits...Crumb Quilts?

But I like the Chicken Nuggets!

Spare parts? Works for things like the turkey parts stuffed into the little bags inside the turkey, at least at our house.

I think it depends on how you define fabric scraps.

I know it may seem obvious, but I know some people who keep all the bits that are cut away when you cut out a pattern, no matter how oddly shaped. Others toss all those bits and just keep what ever is left of the end of the fabric after you have cut out the pattern. This piece will usually have at least on selvage edge and it is easy to determine grain.

I used to be in the first category, but as I am not a quilter, the odd shaped pieces were useless. Now I toss them and call them trash.

I will save a piece that is 6 inches or more long from the end of the fabric after cutting out the pattern. I can use this for lining pockets, contrast cuffs or collars, trimming pillow cases and more.

Now if I have a metre or more left over fabric I do not consider it to be scraps.
