One of my most favorite things to do is take fabric that no one wants and turn it into something useful. It's a challenge I love to take on. So when someone gave me a big box of upholstery fabric samples I quickly got to work... I made 2 huge (100"x100") quilts that are now used as picnic and camping quilts. They're tied quilts with cotton batting and a flannel sheet for the backing. *Tip - Flannel sheets make great quilt backs. I buy them when they're on clearance at great prices. I also made the little hanging pillow dog out of a pattern I found. It's mouth is a zipper. I made a bunch last Christmas and put gift cards in their mouths. So in the end I won the challenge and wowed my friend who thought the fabric was just for throw away! I love it when I can prove them wrong.
