Old Fabric?

What to do with the old fabric in your stash?? Check out page 2 of the June 2006 CareWear newsletter! A lady in TN coordinates a group of women that make lap quilts for nursing homes. I just cleaned out a stash of old fabric from my Mom. When I started sewing, she decided to pawn off (and I mean that in the loveliest sense of the word) a large tote of old double knit fabric. Much to my dismay, I found myself going, "Well, this I might can use for an applique accent." What is up with that? Why can't I just donate it all? Regardless, I cut the stash in half or close to it. I'll see how much I can get into one of the flat rate boxes at the post office.
