Using up those batting scraps

Out of that pile of batting scraps I managed to get batting pieced together for 7 of the 9 baby quilts!

I have one lap sized quilt I will have to cut from my bolt of batting, so I will use the leftover to piece another baby quilt sized batting. Here is the pile of batting I still have.
As I have been cleaning up piles here and there, I spied this yardage that was under a pile. This will be going on the back of one of these 16 patch quilts. It was funny that not that long ago I was digging thru my stash trying to find fabrics that might work for the backs not sure if I would find enough. Now I have more than I need between the fabric I brought home from my friend's yard sale and what I had in my stash.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am taking Monday off to so that is a 5 day weekend for me.

Great finishes. All are beautiful! I use almost all of my batting scraps, especially on children’s quilt that have lots of quilting. Have a great thanksgiving.

That is a lot of pieced batting! I love that backing fabric.

That piece looks like a fantastic back. I just spent an hour sorting out some backs and bindings from my stash.
Do you piece all your batt leftovers into one or do you keep them sorted by brand? I've always kept "like" together but wonder if it makes a difference when they are all similar batts (cotton).

I love that squiggly fabric - a perfect match for all your African loveliness on the fronts.
