Earth Day Ideas

It's a well known fact that quilters are the ultimate fabric recyclers. But if you'd like to take it a step further, here are some "green" ideas:

Michael Miller Organics Free Pattern here Organic Garden. Here's their retail store locater.

Here in the Pac. NW we're seeing a lot more eco-friendly cloth tote bags in grocery stores, intended to replace those flimsy plastic bags that are destined to end up floating around the Pacific or in landfills for generations. Bonus - they're a heck of a lot sturdier, too! Marcus Fabrics has a great, simple & easy project to make your own, using eco-friendly canvas fabrics, too!

If you'd like to support other eco-friendly artists, here's a fabulous Etsy shop we recently found: Organic Quilt Company.
