Finding Free Fabric

I am looking to start quilting for the first time. Is there anyplace or anyone that gives free scraps of material?

You can try searching on Craigslist or http://freecycle.org

Try the free stuff area on Craigslist or sign up on your local Nextdoor.com

Put a want ad in Freecycle or Craigslist.

Look no further than your own closet or dresser. Clothing and linens you no longer wear or use make excellent quilting material for beginners!

You may find free stuff through Craigslist and Freecycle but it may not be the type of material suitable for quilting or the colors you like.

I have always found excellent material at my local thrift stores, especially at Hospice and church stores. If you do not see material bunches then you might think about using sheets (especially the ones where elastic has lost its stretch) or dust covers are always plentiful and usually very inexpensive. You may even have some of these in your own closet. Pillow cases also work - especially when starting on your first project.
