I got two new quilt magazines in the mail, it is always fun to see what is going on in the quilt world. One ask what were quilter's doing to go green? Here are some tips.
One uses selvages to tie tomato plants and tall flowers to stakes/fencepost.
Use small pieces of leftover batting to store new Christmas ornaments.
One lady makes pillows for pets. She uses large scraps to make the pillows and the small pieces to fill the pillows. She donates the pillows to the local SPCA who gives these to new pet owners to take home with their newly adopted pets.
