I will say my dog always chooses a soft comfy place to lie. 

I agree that the scraps should go to someone who likes to make scrap quilts or other crafters that can use them.

I agree with your thoughts on Charity quilts, sometimes they aren't well made.  If it's worth doing, it's worth doing it well - maybe not to the level of heirloom, but still something you can be proud of.

I agree on the charity quilts. They need to be made with love and care. Like Dee said not heirloom quality but still nice. I used to take home two quilt tops a month from my guild when I got my longarm. I would try out new designs or just have fun with them and always did them with care.

I totally agree about the scraps for dog bed stuffing.  Not ony lumpy but a nightmare after getting out of the washer.

Same thoughts on the charity quilts.  I want them well constructed, but don't   stress too much if not all the seam match perfectly.

I like the StitchedbySusan videos too Dee.  She's the one I took the free motion/freehand classes from during the COVID shutdown.  I'm enjoying the free Boot Camp that started yesterday too. "Freehand Quilting De-Myth-Defied".   Do you  like it so far?  If anyone else is interested in it, one of us could send you the link.  It goes for 3 days (Tues, Wed, & Thurs), 2pm Pacific time, and replays are available until November 4th if you happen to miss any of the live videos.  I'll miss today because I lead a longarm group that meets this afternoon.  I'll watch the replay later tonight.  I saw on the Facebook group where they are working on fixing a replay glitch so I'll have to see if it's fixed by tonight though.

I’ve always thought the same thing about it being so lumpy!

I use  my rulers to try out on charity quilts.  

yes I am enjoying it.  I've gone through her pintrest and blog and made snips and put in a OneNote folder for future reference.  Now to go try some things on the sample fabric I have loaded.  I need to practice or I'll forget.
